The Eastman Dry Plate Company, the predecessor of Eastman Kodak, was established in 1880 by George Eastman and Henry Strong in Rochester, New York. The 'Kodak' trademark was registered on September 4, 1888, and the Eastman Kodak Company was founded in 1892.
Shortly thereafter, in 1897 Kodak acquired American Camera Manufacturing Company of Northboro previously founded by Thomas H. Blair. In 1898, Kodak purchased The Photo Materials Company (PMC) and in 1899, Kodak acquired another Blair's company - Blair Camera Company of Boston.
In 1903 Kodak bought out the large camera manufacturing syndicate consisting of five camera companies - The Rochester Optical Company. During the same year Kodak purchased a stock of The Century Camera Company previously owned by Rochester Optical Company employees. In its turn, Century Company took over the Rochester Panoramic Camera Company (maker of the original Cirkut cameras) in 1905. Century became a Century Division of the Kodak company in 1907.
In 1905 Kodak acquired Folmer & Schwing Manufacturing Company, but in 1921 the Kodak company (being a way too large) was forced to split and sell Folmer & Schwing-Century Division with Grafiex, Graphic and Century brands; the Premo factory and a Premo brand; Artura, Seed, Stanley and Standard brands.
Currently Kodak manufactures a lot of digital equipment, cameras, printers, etc. In 2012 the company filed for the bankruptcy protection.
