Berlin-based Agfa prepare to build a film factory in Wolfen, East Germany.
Agfa Wolfen releases Agfacolor; a milestone in photographic history.
After WWII, US forces seize the Agfa Wolfen plant and confiscate sensitive information about Agfacolor which are then provided to Kodak and Ilford. The plant is eventually turned over to Soviet control which contributes to the Soviet color film industry.
Agfa Wolfen returns to East Germany from Soviet control. Agfa Wolfen has market rights to East Europe, while their West German sibling, Agfa Leverkusen, sells their products worldwide.
Due to political constraints, Agfa Wolfen sells its trademark rights to Agfa Leverkusen and rebrands itself as ORWO (ORiginal WOlfen).
ORWO was the second largest film producer in the world, employing 15,0000 people and had a wide range of film products distributed worldwide.
With the reunification of East and West Germany, ORWO is privatized into ORWO AG.
The German State Trust liquidates ORWO, consequently ending ORWO’s film production.
FilmoTec GmbH restarts the ORWO film brand and continues to produce the legendary film at the original factory in Wolfen, Germany
