|Sometimes, news follows cycles. The last few weeks have been dominated by trade shows and new models.
Now, we enter another financial reporting season as companies confirm their fortunes over the past three months. This week's newsletter includes the first of these results.
Interestingly, we also have news of a couple of facilities expansions on both sides of the Atlantic.
And we also report, as usual, on some personnel movements. This week's round-up is a bit different thanks to some high-level changes in a couple of boards.
Hope you enjoy this mixed bag.
