Behind the scenes in a photo lab
As part of the Innovation Deutschland series, TBD Media Deutschland reports on the reorientation of the medium-sized company allcop from Lindenberg in Allgäu.
As one of Europe's leading photofinishers, allcop offers a wide range of personalized products. The owner-managed company employs 220 people and has been known for top quality and innovation for more than 60 years. For more than 1,000 retailers from the areas of retailers, drugstores, discounters as well as online portals, allcop is the reliable partner for their photo service.
allcop was founded in 1959 by Otto and Elke Wiest under the name "Allgäuer Copieranstalt". In the beginning, the company concentrated on film and photo development for the photo retailers. Quality and service were important success factors in the company from the very beginning, and they continue to this day. In this way, allcop made a name for itself in the industry with repeated awards as the No. 1 specialist trade laboratory. Towards the end of the 1990s, son Peter Wiest successfully led allcop through the phase of upcoming digital photography and established new forms of area sales.
