Welcome to Amstrad's web site - at present this is as close as you'll get to a full www.amstrad.com - (but I'm working on that!)
This site is not entirely "official" as it's just something I work on when I've got a spare moment but my name's Cliff Lawson and I'm a software engineer who's been working for Amstrad since 1984. I've been involved with virtually all of our computer projects and can sometimes help out if you have a problem.
Amstrad do have a link to the internet so my preferred email address is given here but I have to warn people that I'm perpetually busy which means that I find very little time for answering questions either sent to my email or posted on Compuserve. However, if it's an easy question I will endeavour to respond.
Rumours have circulated that Amstrad has gone out of business, that isn't true but what did happen is that in a deliberate move on 31st July 1997 Amstrad plc shares ceased to trade on the London Stock Exchange so at that point it WAS true that "Amstrad" as a company effectively no longer existed. However this was just because of a share split of the original Amstrad into Viglen Technology plc and Betacom plc. Later, at the Betacom AGM at the end of November 1997 it was decided that the Betacom company name should be changed back to Amstrad plc so we're back for business as usual as if nothing had ever happened! (For more details of our histroy follow the link in the next paragraph).
The following are links to companies which Amstrad are, or have been, heavily connected with.
