Surely the OP meant to say 'Babcock Norwich'??????

It's 5 years since the purchase of Avinsis; there must be some corporate sense of ownership by now?

Once the contract bid was lost several people looked at other opportunities. While Tupe applied to all, the higher up the tree you are the thinner the branches become and less likely the contract winner will need / Keep you. So he moved on.
