Evesham ex-employee registers Geemore.com

...and .co.uk

Disillusioned ex-Evesham Technology workers now have a new website where the 150 or so redundant staff can vent their spleens, look for new jobs and talk about the good old days at the firm.

Geemore.com has been set up with a forum for staff to stay in touch on all things Evesham-related.

Surprisingly, despite the fact that Evesham is now a trading name for Geemore Ltd, nobody at the firm appeared to have had the foresight to register the domain names Geemore.com and Geemore.co.uk. Now, ex-employee Jason Singleton, appears to have beaten them to it.

Dubai-based PCC Technology late last week had thrown Evesham what appeared to be an apparent $22m lifeline. A day or two later however, and the rescue package failed to save many of the firm's long-serving staff.

Evesham went into administration last Friday following months of speculation that the British computer maker was in serious financial trouble. Staff were laid off while its chairman and founder Richard Austin continued to insist that it was "business as usual" at the firm.

Administrators DTE Leonard Curtis released a statement today in which it said that Evesham had gone into administration due to "significant loss-making and the build up of creditor pressure".

It confirmed that John Titley, Andrew Poxon and Paul Reeves had been appointed as administrators overseeing the restructure of the firm as well as assisting PCC Technolgy, the Dubai-based company headed up by Tahir Mohsan.

DTE said: "A sale of the majority of the groups remaining assets has taken place to a number of third parties including PCC Technology Limited."

The administrator added that it will also work closely with PCC to help it try and offer ongoing support for Evesham customers. ®
