As of yesterday Vadim Computers, or V-Solutions LTD as the parent company is officially known, has gone into liquidation.
We've previously reviewed Vadim kit here on bit-tech
and while we've loved some
and not others
, we can't deny that the company always pushed boundaries in the boutique PC sector, despite its small size.
Having seen Komplett
recently leave British shores too, it comes as little surprise that some smaller companies are also feeling the pinch of the global credit crunch and general economic downturn. The sudden departure has come as a little surprise for some though and, as it explains in the news post, it certainly wasn't for lack of trying
Seeking both loans and VC investment, but eventually attaining neither, was just one blow too many given that the company wanted to expand into the US and Europe with it's own line of exclusive cases to really set itself apart in the boutique market. Indeed, this isn't the first time we've seen something from Vadim that has tried to break the "PC builder" mold - late last year we initially looked at his own BlastFlow GPU block
The brand and company are currently open for offers too, and Vadim claims to be moving to a different market sector - though he is refocusing on blastflow for the moment and has promised to let us see his latest work as soon as possible.
As always, bit-tech
wishes him and his staff well in their future endeavors - pass on your thoughts in the forums
