Eveshambles have finally gone into administration after much prevaricating and assurances from the last surviving director that all was well.
The news is hardly a surprise thanks to the Evesham employees who have been spilling the beans on Evesham in the comments on this blog. People spending their hard-earned cash with Evesham might have been better warned if PC Pro magazine had taken my warning seriously weeks ago when I told them what had been said but Evesham managed to convince them that it wasn’t going to happen. As it happens, people have found themselves waiting for deliveries from a company that is now in administration.
It’s not a straightforward case of a company going into administration though. Eveshambles has gone into administration but in the meantime, the sole director of Evesham set up a new business with two former directors of the old TIME Computers that went bankrupt a few years ago. This new company has come to an agreement with the Administrator to take over the Evesham name and continue trading in the future using the Evesham name. The new company intends to start shipping stock from Evesham Technology to customers of Evesham Technology and will be honouring the existing warranties.
This is a very strange deal that’s been done with the Administrator.
