With a career spanning half a century, Formatt's quality principles have been clearly defined and have brought continued success in the design, development and manufacture of some of the world's greatest glass filters.
Formatt's ongoing research and development into glass filters was originally set up by Reginald Morris, grandfather to the Company founder, who worked for many years as chief physicist at Kodak, helping develop what is now known as the 'Kodak Wratten Standard'. This remains the world-wide standard in technical colour correction and stands as the benchmark in all Formatt Filters production today.
Further pioneering research in the 1980's resulted in a unique method of colouring glass filters. This was the catalyst for a new level of consistency and repeatability in filter manufacturing.
