The Tulip brand name has been preserved, as the troubled Dutch PC maker came out of administration last week.
Tulip's manufacturing plant in Holland has been leased to computer distributor Ingram Micro, which will manufacture Tulip-branded machines there alongside models for IBM, Compaq and Hewlett-Packard.
"It is a good deal, but we did not have much choice, as the company could well have gone bust," reported Jonathan Sultan, marketing manager at Tulip UK.
Since Tulip went into receivership at the beginning of May, the company has been involved in "all sorts of talks on mergers, takeover and joint ventures", he added. Royal Dutch Begemann bailed out the firm.
Begemann turned down offers from Packard Bell and Vobis on the grounds that the Tulip brand would have been killed off, the employees lost their jobs and the assets would have been stripped away, Sultan explained.
Tulip will only operate in the UK, Holland, Germany, Belgium, France and Italy. The other operations will be sold off, many to management buyouts.
The company will concentrate on the corporate market, which throws the future of the retail focused Commodore, owned by Tulip, into doubt.
Sultan admitted that a few corporate accounts and resellers have deserted Tulip over the troubled period.
All warranties outstanding will be honoured, he said.
