Marathon has been providing Microfilming services since we were first established way back in 1981. Although back then, Microfilm was the industry standard for archiving documents, drawings and maps. Like our markets, our business has evolved to become a major scanning bureau. Our years of experience working with microfilm means we are able to continue to offer a comprehensive microfilm conversion service. Working from fiche, roll films and aperture cards, we digitise them for convent accessibility in todays working environment. We still have not forgot our roots and are one of a few that still offer Microfilming as a service 16mm and 35mm Roll film and cassettes, Fiche and Aperture cards.
