The court has appointed the Official Receiver



The companies are all registered and trade in Essex they all supply computer equipment to the public, the DTI says in a press release.

Nu-Tech, Oracal and Pastel Holding share the same registered office and trading address - 8,The Centre, Lakes Industrial Park, Lower Chapel, Braintree Essex. Dean Edware Morter is the director of all three companies, while Edward Charles Parker ACCA is listed as the company secretary for all concerned. Tritek is registered in Maldon, Essex and it trades from the same town. Director Simon Manthorpe is a former employee of Nu-Teech and the former secretary of Oracal, the DTI says.
