Twitch streamer Tyler “Trainwreck” Niknam has offered to buy Artesian Builds after the PC build company considered an “employee-led takeover.”
On March 1, 2022, custom PC company Artesian Builds was called out by a handful of Twitch streamers after CEO Noah Katz allegedly changed the rules of a PC giveaway and “downplayed” their stream stats.
The action sparked a massive uproar on social media and from well-known streamers like Mizkif and Alinity.
In case you haven’t heard @ArtesianBuilds don’t care about their little streamer ambassadors. They have monthly PC giveaways for their ambassadors, awesome right? Expect them not to care about small streamers. I got picked and they changed their rules at the last minute (cont) pic.twitter.com/CzDiq7VTZP

Now, four days later, the company has announced an attempt at a leadership change, something Twitch streamer Trainwreck is keen to pick up on.

In a tweet on the company’s official Twitter account, Artesian Builds said the company is considering a “potential employee takeover.”
“We are currently evaluating a possible employee-led takeover of the company. Thank you for your support,” they wrote.

Upon seeing the post, Trainwreck decided to lend a hand himself, suggesting he would buy it outright rather than allowing an employee-led takeover.
“Check DMs, I’m buying the company and running it properly,” he said in a reply to her tweet.

Additionally, PowerGPU, another custom PC building company, offered to support him by taking on any backlogs from Artesian builds.
“Once you do that, we can take care of any remaining backlog you have 6 months ago,” the company replied.
It seems like what started as a call for wrongdoing by a handful of streamers has now evolved into a potential reversal for the company. Only time will tell if the latter is true.
