PC Science, the North Yorkshire vendor that fell into receivership on Wednesday, faces a buy-out next week. This is according to Asda, which bought its computers solely from PC Science until it dumped the manufacturer yesterday. “They’re [PC Science] going to get bought next week,” said Kerry Stirland, Asda buyer manager. She was unable to give any potential buyer names. Asda has stopped buying PCs for the moment and Stirland said the supermarket chain’s long-term strategy on computers was still undecided. There will be no change to ASDA customer service for PCs. This is handled by Target Computer Maintenance Limited. The ASDA contract was first won by Viglen, then by Atlantic Systems (the line once sold by liquidated distributor Memsolve). PC Science started supplying ASDA with computers in March. KPMG, PC Science’s receiver, was unable to comment on potential bids for the PC company, which is based in Boroughbridge, near York. “A statement will be made when there is anything further to add,” said a KPMG representative. ®
