Qualex Inc. is the largest wholesale and on-site photographic processing company in the world. It was formed in March 1988 as a joint venture between Eastman Kodak and Fuqua Industries, but became a wholly owned subsidiary of Kodak in 1994. [ [http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m3374/is_n14_v16/ai_15761188 "Kodak acquires balance of Qualex", Drug Store News, Aug. 29, 1994] ] It is headquartered in Durham, North Carolina. Qualex operates a large network of commercial and in-store labs throughout the United States and Canada.

Qualex's business has suffered from the overall decline in traditional film photography in favor of digital photography. Qualex once operated 53 photo processing laboratories; that number had shrunk to 22 as of June 2004, and the company was expecting further consolidation. Qualex, however, continued to service over 13,000 on-site retail processing locations.
