Gateway sub ALR Newbury shuts

Stock will now come from Elsewhere

Most of the staff at Gateway subsidiary ALR UK were laid off last Wednesday as the direct PC company reorganised its activities. A source at the company told The Register today: "The managing director [Julian Neath] was told to give people their redundancy agreements last Wednesday." He said: "The staff knew it was going to happen but they were still upset. There are still three of us left here at ALR Newbury but we're on contract with Gateway until the end of February." He added that all stock was now coming out of Gateway Ireland, a fact that is sure to antagonise premier UK distributor Norwood Adam, which claims it has a long standing contract that needs to be fulfilled. A Gateway representative said that she had no knowledge of the redundancies. ®
