Intel liquidates as certification requirement ends

Intel New Zealand has liquidated more than six years after closing the local business, saying a requirement to retain the local entity for certification of products by Telecom New Zealand has ended.

Intel was registered here in 1990 and remained so until last month. The Auckland development unit, previously known as Dialogic, was the last part of the local entity to be closed in May 2003.

Its activities were transferred to the US, according to a Computerworld report that year. According to the report, Auckland sales staff departed in May 2002 and the former managing director the previous year.

ANZ public relations manager Anna Torres says the New Zealand business has been run from Australia since 2003, with account managers looking after New Zealand accounts. Intel has not had plans to re-establish a presence here, she says.

“Intel NZ was required to retain the entity for product certification for a period of time because there were certain products which needed certification with NZ Telecom.

“This is no longer required, which is why the liquidation has now occurred,” Torres said in a statement.

A Telecom spokesman was unable to ascertain which products required certification.

According to the liquidator’s report, there are no known creditors and liquidation is set for completion by 15 December. The company’s total surplus as regards unsecured creditors and shareholders was $275,108, the report says.

No creditors had made themselves known at the time of writing, according to liquidator Craig Gower of BDO Spicers.

“It was just a dormant company they wanted to wind up,” he says, adding the surplus will be dispersed among shareholders.
