The PC Company receiver, Hamilton-based Kim Thompson, is hopeful a deal will be struck in the next week with a national chain of stores to sell off the remainder of the assembler's stock.

Thompson will not name the company involved at this stage.

The PC Company went into receivership in September and Thompson was appointed to wind up the company.

Thompson says he is working with a skeleton staff assembling PCs out of the parts that are left.

"There were very few fully-assembled PCs left. The company worked on a build-to-order process so we're just putting together machines from what parts remain."

Thompson is also looking for buyers for the rest of the company assets. He says nobody has expressed an interest in buying the assembly line as a going concern. The PC Company had purchased a full computer assembly line from Gateway Computers when it retrenched out of New Zealand in 2001.
