Castle confirms move to Tematic officeBy Chris Williams. Published: 5th Dec 2005, 18:28:10 | Permalink | Printable
We gotta get out of this placeThe vacant offices once filled with Tematic staff will be the new home for Castle Technology, it has been confirmed. Castle's embedded engineering team moved to Signet Court, Cambridge, in April, but left in October as part of a reduction in design and sales staff.
The company were known to be working on IPTV based set top boxes having reportedly deployed units to clients around the start of the year.
A source claimed: "Basically, they've had financial hiccups these last few months with one of their mega-big projects, so they didn't have the cashflow to keep the engineers on the payroll - N times 40 grand makes a large monthly outgoing if one of the monthly income streams dries up.
"I.e. it's nothing to do with insufficient Iyonix sales, but the somewhat larger-scale projects they are into. They'll continue using these programmers, but on a contract basis only."
Castle, the publishers of RISC OS 5, will leave their Framlingham base from where they have operated for over seven years. According to company director Jack Lillingston, Castle will shortly complete their move to 3 Signet Court Cambridge CB5 8LA, telephone 0870 383 4543, fax 0870 705 8879, and direct line 01223 503464.
Castle are also running a Christmas special offer on LCD monitors: punters can save up to 50% on the price of a monitor when bought with an Iyonix before January 31st, 2006. To qualify, quote 'X20056' when ordering.
