- Engineering company 600 Group said the head of its laser marking division, David Grimes, planned to stand down in about a year.

The company said it had extended his employment contract by another year to assist in a management restructure of the division.

As part of the extension, Grimes would take up the new role of chief technology officer, effective April.

'This is an important step in the group's planned succession strategy and will support the key development and delivery of its new proprietary technology platform,' 600 Group said.
