Did anyone work at Derritron?

I’m researching the Derritron Group of companies who had a large factory in Hastings back in the 1970s and 1980s.

The company was liquidated in 1982.

In particular – Derritron Telecommunications Ltd.

I’d dearly like to contact an ex-employee or two, in the hope that they might be able to help me in my vintage electronics research.

Ideally, information might be revealed as to whether there exists a depository somewhere of their old technical documentation.
