Mike Allen will continue to be Site Director of Wallwork Heat Treatment Birmingham Ltd.
Commenting on the reshaping of the board, Richard Burslem said: "I have worked for WHT for almost 35 years and have been a Director for over 23 of them. We have grown considerably over this period and we have an excellent management team supported by an equally excellent workforce. For many years we have consistently invested heavily in new plant, processes and technology and will continue to do so in the future. As part of the succession plan for the company, I feel we are in a position where I am able to step back and work part time to support our efforts and provide continuity whilst having more free time to spend with my family".
Group Chairman Hamish Wallwork commented: "Richard will be working for Group Technical Director Peter Carpenter on various development projects and this arrangement has the full support of the board.
