Skan will join Britannia Row Productions as part of the Clair Global brand family, allowing it to offer its clients a worldwide service, while keeping freight costs and environmental impacts to a minimum.
Nicola Amoruso, managing director at Britannia Row Productions, said: “Since its inception, Skan has evolved to become recognised internationally for its passion for providing the very best service, equipment, packaging and people to its clients. Skan and Britannia Row have maintained a relationship of friendly competition and mutual respect throughout this time, and both parties see this partnership as a logical step forward.”
Chris Fitch, Skan’s director and co-owner, said: “We were flattered to be asked to join the pre-eminent global audio rental company. There is no other offer we would have considered, and we expect this new arrangement to provide benefits to our existing and future customers. Over the past 25 years, we have provided a global service from our base in the UK, but being part of a global organisation allows more options to supply services and provide support from other locations.”
