Britannia Row Productions acquires Skan
UK-based sound provider becomes the latest addition to the Clair Global family of companies.
September 22, 2022
Britannia Row Productions, a Clair Global company, has announced the acquisition of fellow UK-based sound reinforcement provider, Skan, to offer an even more comprehensive level of service and support to both firms’ existing and future clients. The transaction was finalized this month.
“Since its inception, Skan has evolved to become recognized internationally for its passion for providing the very best service, equipment, packaging, and people to its clients,” states Nicola Amoruso, Managing Director at Britannia Row. “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.”
Founded in the 70’s, Skan is based in Newbury in the South of England and offers sound reinforcement services for tours, festivals and large-scale events with an impressive roster of clients worldwide including Muse, Liam Gallagher, and ELO. The firm’s present leadership will remain in place.
Chris Fitch, Director & Co-owner at Skan said, “We were flattered to be asked to join the preeminent 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 last 25 years, we have provided a global service from our base in the UK but being part of a global organization allows more options to supply services and provide support from other locations.
Working with Abby Llewellyn, Director & Co-owner, and a core of dedicated and incredibly talented staff, Skan has always punched above our weight, but joining Britannia Row and Clair Global further increases our capabilities.”
Skan will maintain its name and will become a part of the larger Clair Global brand family along with Britannia Row. Joining the Clair Global network will give Skan the ability to offer its clients a truly worldwide level of service while keeping freight costs and environmental impacts to a minimum.
Clair Global President and CEO, Troy Clair, concludes, “We’re thrilled for Skan to be joining our organization. The people at Skan share the same values we pride ourselves in upholding at Clair – service, quality, and integrity. The bottom line is, when they do something, they do it extremely well, and we are confident that this new partnership will result in the opportunity to better service all of our clients.”
