That would be the Bordynuiks, Heather & John IIRC. They had a bunch of stuff
on ebay a while back, bought some pdp-11/20 memory from them. Other than
that my contact with them has been minimal.

They own - they had some nice stuff, including a nice pdp-15 with
drum IIRC. Think Robert Garner has that one now...

The Alto restoration is one *very* impressive bit of work, they're serious
hardware engineers - seem to recall they also (according to rumour) had
something to do with Paul Allen and his KL...
