New Posters in the Toolbox
We've added some new posters to the Toolbox for Easter and Spring.

They are based on previous designs but we've added a harder hitting message about printing your photos rather than risking losing them if you lost your phone or forgot a password to access the cloud.

This is a message all stores should promote so we will be looking to add some more posters along this theme shortly.
Posters you'd like to see?

If there are poster or other POS you'd like to be made available then drop us a line to kex@tetenal.uk.com and we'll take a look at what we can do.

Management Buyout completed at Tetenal
The management buyout of Tetenal, manager of the Kodak Express network on behalf of Kodak Alaris, has been completed. 

The new ownership consortium is made up of 4 members of the current management team, headed up by Managing Director Mike Fawcett. The other members are Finance director Mark Norman, Sales & Marketing Director Phil Barker and Operations Director Verity Adkin.
Mike Fawcett, Managing Director and now co-owner of Tetenal in the UK is delighted to have completed the deal.

“It fills me with a great deal of pride to now be co-owner of Tetenal, a business which I have helped and nurtured over the years to become the successful and profitable company it now is. When it became apparent that there was a chance to put together a management buyout I spoke with my key partners and we all agreed it was too good an opportunity to pass up. We talked about where we’d like to take the business and in the end, it was an easy decision.
"The company has been built on the four pillars of great colleagues, customers, suppliers and products. .

Aside from the distribution part of our business it was great to speak with consumers at The Photography Show recently who were pleased to hear that Tetenal would continue to supply the market with photographic chemistry. It’s great for the industry for us to say that Tetenal will be there to supply and support the photographic printing community for years to come in all aspects of our business".
