McDONNELL, GENERAL AUTO, ULTIMATE, JOIN PERTEC QUEUE

By CBR Staff Writer

It is no secret that Pertec Computer Corp has been on the market for the best part of three years now – NCR’s ADDS unit almost bought it in November 1984 – but the prospect that Point 4 Data Corp will win the company and become another serious contender in the Pick market (CI No 609), has galvanised the leading Pick-poppers, and a whole string of companies have reportedly made serious inquiries to Volkswagen about its last remaining computer property. Among those named are General Automation, McDonnell-Douglas Information Systems, Ultimate Corp, and a couple of rank outsiders, Scan-Optics and a company calling itself Computer Systems. Pertec makes 68000 family CPUs for Pick, Unix and a proprietary executive.
