The Board would like to express their sincere thanks for his wise counsel, invaluable insights and important contributions to the Board on which he has so diligently served.

David Longney TBS Engineering Group Managing Director adds:
“I would like to personally acknowledge the contribution Laurie has made in growing TBS over the last forty-six years to be the “best in class” supplier of assembly equipment to the lead-acid battery industry.
“It’s a major testament to Laurie’s leadership that many of the leading car manufacturers specify that their batteries should be manufactured on our machines. They know that they can rely on TBS equipment to produce high quality batteries efficiently, backed up by a first-class spares and after-sales service”
Laurie’s vision and customer focus has been an integral part of the company and he confidently leaves TBS secure in the knowledge that there is a strong leadership in place to continue the exciting journey of innovation and growth in the 21st Century.
