Bystronic UK appoints new managing director

Share this on social media:

Daniel Thombs, 45, has been appointed managing director of Coventry-based Bystronic UK, a subsidiary of Swiss group Bystronic Laser AG, which specialises in manufacturing high technology sheet metalworking machinery, notably flat-bed laser cutting machines, tube laser cutting machines, material storage automation and pressbrakes. He is joining Bystronic at a time when the UK business is strong and increasing market share year-on-year, with turnover currently at an all-time high. 

On 1 October 2018 Dan will take over from the current MD David Larcombe, who has been with the company for 40 years. David started as an apprentice at F J Edwards, which became Edwards Pearson and subsequently Bystronic UK. He will continue helping Dan full-time until the end of the year and will then work part-time for the Coventry subsidiary as well as for Bystronic's Swiss headquarters. 

David said, 'I can honestly say that I have enjoyed every moment of the past 40 years in this industry. Bystronic has been a great company to work for, with such interesting products and services. I have made many great friends over the years within our customer base and I look forward to keeping in touch for many years to come, so I will not be disappearing.'
