Hi,

I just called Jobo US Customer Service to find out what was up.

The sky is not in fact falling.

They are in fact closing, but are close to a deal on a US Distributor. They
could not reveal the name of the US Distributor, but assured me Jobo
Products, Parts and Service would still be available in the US, although not
directly from Jobo.

Breath easier.

Regards,

Sean

I have an e-mail in to Jobo corporate to see if I can get some more info.
I'll pass along whatever news I receive. Just as a guess, I'd think they
would hook up with a US marketer (like HP, for example) to keep their
presence alive here, without the cost of supporting their own US unit.

        The bigger sizes used to be all custom made IIRC. You'd send them a
sheet of
your film and they made an insert to fit.

        The reason I'm wondering is I've been thinking of buying a 3063 tank
but keep
putting it off. I wonder if I should hurry up.
