The company Aktiengesellschaft für Anilinfabrikation (Corporation for Aniline Production) was founded in Rummelsburg in 1867 as a manufacturer of dyes and stains, by Paul Mendelssohn Bartholdy and Carl Alexander von Martius. They began producing x-ray plates and film products in 1898, and in 1903 manufactured their first cinematographic film. In 1925 Agfa became part of IG Farben, a German chemical and pharmaceutical company, and its photographic production was incorporated with Bayer. As of November 2017, WorldCat locates only two holdings in North America.
