By the time Eastman launched his dry plate business in 1880, European interest in photography was keen, but its practice was mostly limited to professionals. Eastman recognized the potential of the world market for amateur photographers. Only five years after the Eastman Dry Plate and Film Company was established in the U.S., a sales office was opened in London. Within the next few years, particularly after the introduction of the KODAK camera and Eastman’s simplified methods, picture-taking became popular with hundreds of thousands of amateurs. In 1889, the Eastman Photographic Materials Company, Limited, was incorporated in London, England, to handle distribution of Kodak products in countries outside the U.S. At first, all goods were manufactured in Rochester. Before long, the combined international and domestic demand outpaced plant resources. Construction of a factory at Harrow, England — just outside London — was completed in 1891. By 1900, distribution outlets had been established in France, Germany, Italy, and other European countries. A Japanese outlet was under consideration, and construction of a factory in Canada was underway with the organization of Canadian Kodak Company, Limited. Today, Kodak has manufacturing operations in North and South America, Europe, and Asia, and Kodak products are available in virtually every country across the globe. Visit
