OGIVAT TECHNOLOGIES TRIES TO SELL ITS OGIVAR 286 TO US GOVERNMENT

By CBR Staff Writer

Montreal-based Ogivar Technologies Inc, which grandly claims to be Canada’s national computer company – you ever heard of it? No, neither had we – hopes to take advantage of Toshiba Corp’s misfortune by stepping up its efforts to sell its Ogivar 286 Laptop into the US government market: last week, President Reagan signed into law a bill that prohibits sales of Toshiba products to the US government for three years, in retribution for the sales of milling equipment by the company’s Toshiba Machine affiliate to the Soviet Union; Ogivar says it has achieved more than $4m in sales since introducing the 286 Laptop to the US market following Federal Communications Commission approval on June 30; Canadian desktop systems sales are targeted at over $60m this year.
