“I will bring additional technical knowledge and experience gained from working on engineering projects for cable and pipe laying vessels over the last 10 years.,” said Scrutton. “The goal is to allow us to grow DLM more efficiently, while maintaining existing levels of customer service and support.”

“Chris has earned it, through the dedication and commitment he has provided to myself and DLM over the past 10 years,” said DLM managing director Martin Halford. “He knows the company inside out, from starting as a calibration technician then progressing to engineering, to management, and now director, gaining engineering and project management qualifications along the way. With the expansion of the company, we needed to reorganise the structure to help us continue with our plans and prepare for the next stage of growth.
