They are longtime features of building 205 at Eastman Business Park. But today, they also represent the sound of a new beginning.
"This is a new opportunity for us, and what we see is certainly the cultures of the two groups are very close," said Dolores Kruchten.
Kruchten oversees the document imaging side of a new venture called Kodak Alaris.
"What this is going to allow us to do is be more successful as a business," said Dennis Olbrich.
Olbrich is in charge of the personal imaging side.
The new company is owned by the UK Kodak Pension Plan, built from parts of Eastman Kodak, which this week emerged from bankruptcy.
"It's a strange dichotomy, where we have a long and rich history and tradition that we're bringing along, but we're starting with a clean slate," said Olbrich.
What that means is a new company, free of debt, which will focus on two core areas. On the personal imaging side, kiosks, consumer film and photographic paper. On the document side, products for health care, banks, and the government; entities which depend on rapid speed printers.
"If you look at the massive changes that have happened with us over the years, document imaging has been insulated from that, because we have been in a growth market. We have been very stable," Kruchten said.
"This is not just a secondary thought. These businesses are our primary thought now," said Olbrich.
Kodak Alaris has perpetual license to use the Kodak brand, but those in charge say it is a new company with a new focus.
"The entire team here is very excited about our ability to be independent, make rapid decisions, make decisions swiftly and really create a long-term future," said Kruchten.
"A sigh of relief is a good way to describe it, and if it was just relief, that would be disappointing," Olbrich said.
Olbrich says given Kodak's decline in Rochester, he's energized by the enthusiasm of longtime employees who now work for Kodak Alaris. As managers like to say: A proud past. A bright future.
"Excited really is the best way to describe it."
