Midlands PC builder Multivision has gone into liquidation and its stock has been sold off.

Its assets have been picked up for an undisclosed amount by Firecrest Solutions, a subsidiary of Carrera SSC.

Liquidators Griffin and King told tThe Register that Firecrest had bought the business assets of MultiVision but would not keep the business trading under that name.

A spokesman for Carrera said: "Multivision was seen as a local competitor for us, so we didn't want it to reappear. We have taken on 12 of their staff and we are still interviewing - there are still jobs available. We've emptied all their offices and factory and have started selling off that inventory."

Carrera is offering ex-Multivision customers the chance to buy a new warranties. Multivision ceased trading on 5 January and so all warranties are null and void.

The company is preparing a letter which should be sent out to all ex-Multivision customers next week. It will offer warranties starting from £99.

The website for the sale of inventory and for warranties is here. ®
