The number of developed film rolls increased to more than 86 million. The Board of Directors of the CeWe Color Group is extremely pleased about these record figures. After a figure of 2.78 billion prints in 1998, an expected increase in volume of 8% - 9% could not be taken for granted in the first few months of last year. Correct positioning in twelve European countries and an increase in efficiency helped CeWe Color to maintain its position as market leader in Europe. Chairman Hubert Rothärmel emphasises that the CeWe Color Group has set clear goals for the new millennium. CeWe Color will maintain its independence. Furthermore, representation in Europe as well as company efficiency will be increased. The photofinishing group will compete for market leadership in both performance and costs. Digital photography is to be developed into a viable additional area of business, not only for the benefit of the company, but for that of the customers as well. CeWe Color is convinced that digital photography will not completely replace 'conventional' photography in the coming years, instead the company is convinced that there definitely are additional opportunities in this field. The CeWe Color Group will also use digital technology to develop and sell even better prints and completely new products, different from the conventional silver film (35mm and APS films).
