Evesham went in to administration last week.
I just phoned our account manager asking where our 44 new PCs where and he told me.
Apparently the former MD of Time was involved. :?
Don't know whats going to happen to all our warranties etc.
Unfortunatly its been on the cards for some time. Somebody might take it on though so things may get sorted over the next couple of days.
Time are looking into taking them over, was all over the web the other week that Time were interested in them or parts of them I believe, but that could have been web rumors
Soooo glad I didn't buy an Evesham TV and got my Samsung one.
I thought Time went bust years ago? Or was that Tiny?
Time did indeed go bust, but not before its founders 'retired' and passed the running of a floundering company onto a board of directors, many of whom did not realise something was up until far to late. The founders got away scott free and the directors took the rap (allegedly). They were then free to pick up the pieces after Time went belly up.
Anyway, I'm quite miffed as I've just brought an Evesham Alquemi 32" LCD TV from the in April, complete with a 3 year warranty! Dammed good TV anyway.
That sucks, sorry to hear the rubbish news.
Warranty's will be honoured... allegedly!
I'm not hopeful. The guy clearly told a few porkies on Friday. If you look at the Registers comments page on their articles you will see several employees who reveal that they knew nothing was up until the bailiffs turned up and changed the locks on the doors and threw them out!Austin's statement is a far cry from the one he issued on Friday, claiming it would be business as normal. "We would like to reassure all of our customers that they will continue to receive support from the same Evesham staff and that their existing warranties will continue to be handled with Evesham's award winning service, as before," Austin claimed in the press release. Austin continues to insist warranties will be honoured.
So do the employees have no jobs now... how does that work?
It depends who the warranty was with, evesham themselves or a 3rd party underwriter. If it's 3rd party, then all is well.Originally Posted by Diello
It has indeed been on the cards for a long time.
I read last week that Brad walked out as MD.
I got taken up to Evesham a few years back by our account manager and met Brad and the rest of the guys they ran a pretty sweet set up to be honest.
Wounder what went wrong
Apparently when the govt gave the Home Computer Initiative (HCI) the chop last year then it cut their income by 30m. Elonex and several others also went belly up because Grasping Gordon needed the cash. No notice was given to the companies who were taking part in this.
