Message from the MD -
Mr. Lewis Martindale, Managing Director, Wincastle Ltd. t/a Photomart
People are at the heart of all successful businesses and I personally believe that the people of Photomart are our strongest asset and without whose enthusiasm, loyalty and dedication, we would not be the highly successful and respected organisation that we are today. I feel privileged to be a part of that team and indeed a part of an industry that I have worked in nearly my entire life and I look forward to the opportunities and challenges that still lie ahead.
Photomart has always been quick to embrace change and for some time now, the industry has seen constant and radical change. Speedier film and paper processes, digital cameras, digital photo printers and digital frames. The information age further gave us social networking and online file sharing, which has had a major impact on photo retail. Most recently we have seen the advent of dry labs and seeing as these "chemistry free" technologies are now more refined and economical, the traditional wet lab will ultimately become just another relic of the past.
Despite all of these changes, Photomart has helped to pioneer and develop various new markets such as event photography, photo gifts, photo books and digital albums. We have worked closely with other industry leaders to develop innovative solutions and introduce new streams of revenue for photo retailers and photographers and many early adopters of these various initiatives are still reaping the benefits. Photomart is also the first and currently the only UK distributor to stock a comprehensive range of dry labs and so, the launch of our "Home of Dry Lab" campaign has firmly established Photomart as the leader in this field.
Over the years, Photomart have demonstrated a strong commitment and maintained a valuable contribution to the benefit of the entire industry and we look forward to continuing in this tradition for a long time to come.
