It is with great sadness that we learnt of the death of Laurent Combaz in a moutaineering accident.

Laurent was for many years a member of Industrial Committee and in 2013 took over a mechanical engineering business near Annecy.

His energy and enthousiasm will be missed by many and we send our condolences to his wide Françoise and his family.
