New hybrid storage solutions

PC Science, the assembler that went into receivership last week, has laid off 150 staff. This leaves 30 workers to run the North Yorkshire company while a buyer is sought the receivers, KPMG, said in a statement today. Adverts have been placed in the national press and KPMG said it was talking to several interested parties with a view to selling the business as a going concern. Last week, the supermarket giant Asda – a key customer of PC Science – told The Register that the system builder was to be sold this week. This was an exclusive story. According to today's statement: "Peter Terry of KPMG was unable to indicate at this stage whether a sale of the business could be achieved." "The receivers anticipate being able to make a further announcement by the end of next week," it added. ® Other PC Science stories that have appeared in The Register: 8 July: Receivers go into PC Science 9 July: Buyer for defunct PC Science?
