Apart from "Kodak" these are well established companies operating in specialist niches who are currently using old mounts (e.g. C or M42).

By going to m4/3 they can access lenses (of roughly similar size to what they are currently using) with modern electronic control features.

Consider that SLR Magic  is putting M43 mounts on lenses originally designed for industrial and machine vision apps. Maybe these companies have decided to add the mount themselves and sell directly?  Or if they have auto focus and adjustable aperture products, they wanted to adopt an established electrical protocol like M43 for industry standardization.
