Quickstep's Chairman, Mr Tony Quick, welcomed Mr Ampherlaw to the Board, saying, "I look forward to working with Nigel and gaining the benefit of his skills and experience as Quickstep seeks to consolidate and expand our carbon composites business. On behalf of my fellow directors I would also like to thank David for his contribution to the transformation process within Quickstep over the last three years, and in particular his role as Chairman of the ARC Committee, which is such a crucial role in fledgling companies such as Quickstep. We wish David an enjoyable retirement as he steps back from his extensive business commitments."
