Alpha Web site problems

Post by Jeff K » Sun Aug 12, 2018 3:53 pm

I noted that early some one has posted that the owner of Alpha had passed. Are they still open or is any one else going to run or purchase the business? Their online valve catalog still works , but every thing else seems to be down online.

VMCC forum: wrote:Max Nightingale, of Alpha Bearings, sadly died suddenly on June 8th , aged 59, of an undiscovered brain tumour. He had no will or immediate dependants, and as he was sole proprietor of Alpha, the bank have frozen the company finances until ownership gets sorted out. This will eventually fall to his sister , but what happens in the meantime is anybody’s guess, with the business in the hands of the bank and solicitors.
I spoke with one of the fitters yesterday, they have a couple of weeks finishing existing orders, then they will close the doors ( hopefully temporarily ).
Not only is this the loss of a nice guy and a good engineer, but the ramifications could affect us playing around with old bikes until it gets sorted out. Very sad on many levels.
