Viglen

 The British company was formed in 1975 and was acquired by Amstrad in 1994. In 1997, it was listed as a public limited company and Amstrad plc shares were split into Viglen and Betacom shares, Betacom being renamed to Amstrad PLC. Following the sale of Amstrad PLC to Rupert Murdoch's BSkyB, Viglen is now Lord Sugar's sole IT establishment. Viglen is run by CEO Bordan Tkachuk, a long time associate of Lord Sugar, who can be seen making special guest appearances on The Apprentice.
 
Viglen focuses particularly on the education and public sectors, selling both desktop and server systems. Viglen also has interests in other IT markets such as managed services, high-performance clusters, and network-attached storage.
