Our history

Eastman Kodak Company launched PRO-TEK Vaults in 1993 as the first film archiving facility of its kind for the inspection, preservation and storage of moving image and still photography content.

PRO-TEK media preservation work includes:

  • Restoration of the iconic movie “The Godfather”
  • Preservation of historical Olympic Games footage for the International Olympic Committee
  • Nitrate film restoration for movies dating back to the silent film era

In November 2013, PRO-TEK was acquired from Kodak by LAC Group, adding valuable information science experience and capabilities to the company’s archiving services.
