Default Anyone have ANY information on this company?

I have a computer made by a brand called IPC Personal Computers. I've only been able to find small bits of information about them. Does anyone know anything about this company?

What I know:
They were a Canadian company
Their headquarters were what is now Joyride 150
Their website can be found on archive.org under ipc.ca
The customer support and tech support numbers just say "This number is not in service"
They apparently went out of business in 2004.

Anyone have any experiences with this company, or know anything about it?

Probably just put their sticker on the case and their logo in the BIOS, and not much else.

They didn't put their logo in the bios, because it's an Award bios, and their logo on the case isn't a sticker. it's part of plastic itself.

I have the motherboard manual, and the OEM restore disk. I don't (anymore) have the purchase information though.

So you don't need any help with the hardware or software, you only need information on the company, is that correct?
