2016 - SKAN End Of Year Report

What a year of change it's been!

Close at home, the BREXIT vote rewrote the political map here in the UK. Unsettling financial, service and industrial markets resulting in wide swings in both the Euro and Dollar exchange exchange rates against GBP, reflecting the nature of these uncertain times...

Further afield, the US election of Donald Trump continues to reverberate around the world... Will the "fiery rhetoric" of the election translate onto the statute books in 2017, or will it simply be "diluted and dispersed" by the nature of the office to which he will soon reside...

In times of turbulence and change, people look to those stalwart organisations, structures and businesses, with decades of history and an inherent stability built into their very DNA, in the hope of finding reassurance, trust and strength.

With over 60 years in the glass industry here in the UK, SKAN has remained a family business, and our business today truly remains as strong as ever!

2016 saw the launch of many new and exciting products for both ourselves and our customers. Beyond the "new" products, we still continue to deliver the very best, proven and cutting-edge glass solutions to industry/acadaemia and Research.

So with a strong balance sheet of "New and Traditional" products/markets, SKAN are more confident and better placed than ever, to head into the New Year!

To all our loyal partners, customers, colleagues and friends, may we wish you all the very best for the festive season and a healthy and prosperous 2017.
