IPI GmbH is the former manufacturing plant of AGFA Wolfen, which was established in 1909 and focused on the production of photographic films. In 1911, the first casting plant for polymer films (nitrocellulose) was built by AGFA. In 1932, the process of making TAC film was patented at the facility.
In 1998, IPI GmbH was established and took over the knowledge and manufacturing site of the former ORWO photographic factory – the successor of the previous AGFA. Since acquiring the ORWO factory, IPI GmbH has diversified its portfolio and ramped up production to become the largest film cast manufacturer in Europe.

We offer our customers the assurance that all IPI GmbH materials are 100% guaranteed and verified by the company.
