Welcome to TETENAL 1847 GmbH
Professional photochemicals for analog photography
PHOTOGRAPHY is fascination: creative, exciting and of course multi-layered. Analog photography is the individualization of ideas and the balancing counterpoint to the snapshot mass market. We love and live photography since 1847. That's why we produce high-quality chemical special products (developers, fixers, stop baths and others) for professional photo production. With our innovative strength and expertise, we have been one of the global players in product development and production in the field of analogue photography for more than 170 years. We serve customers in more than 100 countries worldwide who look forward to and rely on TETENAL's diverse and complete range.
TEMPORA MUTANTUR, ET NOS MUTAMUR IN ILLIS
(Times change, and we change in them)
Tetenal Europe GmbH was liquidated and the new TETENAL 1847 GmbH was founded. How did that work?
With a commitment to the history of employee initiative: Decades of knowledge in the development and production of photographic chemistry were saved with this in autumn 2018 as part of a bankruptcy of the old Tetenal Europe GmbH with a promising restructuring concept and taken over into the new TETENAL 1847 GmbH.
Under the name TETENAL 1847, we are now developing analog photochemistry with innovative approaches with our knowledge. In addition to successful classics, there will be other groundbreaking developments that will combine analogue photography with digital delivery. In particular, analogue photography is making its comeback as a creative alternative to digital overload. With our new TETENAL starter kits MAGIC BOX we want to enable newbies to start an analog adventure and look forward to new "TETENAL experts" who want to become part of this cultural asset.
Records and instant films have shown that there is a demand for nostalgic products from target groups who have not even grown up with these technologies. This is also the case with film photography. Whether it is the camera from the attic of the grandparents or directly from a second-hand shop - cameras, films and the associated image style are increasingly in demand.
"But the fascination of analogue photography does not end with the exposure of the film," says Carsten Gehring, Managing Director of TETENAL 1847 GmbH. The Norderstedt team has made it their mission to bring the fascination of film development to those who have never developed a film.
Taking analog photography means taking the time to slow down and concentrate on the essentials. Developing a film yourself and having all the possibilities to determine the final image with the TETENAL chemicals used is what makes analog photography magic! Each picture is unique!

LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
The developer chemicals in tablet form
TETENAL 1847 is currently conducting a profound research on the development of photochemicals in tablet form. Tablets can generally be stored well and are durable for a long time. They require less storage space than bottles containing liquid chemicals and do not cause much dirt/dust even compared to powder chemicals.
When used, only the required dosage/quantity is taken from the packaging. Simply add water and the finished working solution is created. No detailed measurement of various components anymore or worries about excess chemicals. Photo chemicals in tablet form are user-friendly and precisely doseable.
Creating photochemicals in tablet form becomes reality from our vision to create photochemicals. We are in the final stages of final tablet pressing of the first B/W developer and fixer tablet and are about to be launched. Looking to the future, liquid becomes solid. Another milestone of TETENAL, another milestone in the evolution of analog photography.
TETENAL 1847 GmbH intends to keep the "cultural heritage" of analogue photography actively alive and to continue to research innovative products and forms of existence in the future.
We'll stick to it, stick to it you too.
