It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our colleague and dear friend Jon Skinner who died on Friday 29th December, 2017.
Jon had worked in the glazing industry for more than 40 years and spent his latter years as Commercial Director of Epwin Window Systems, a role which he was proud to have and thoroughly enjoyed before ill health prevented him from continuing.
Jon began his career serving an apprenticeship for BKL Alloys and soon found himself working in one of their newly formed companies, Scope Aluminium, which became a market leader in the aluminium home improvements sector at that time. Over the following years Jon worked with some of the industry leaders and help build some highly recognised brands in the industry while making some life-long friends.
Jon has also chaired the marketing committee of the British Plastics Window Group, working to promote the industry and the benefits of its products. With his infectious enthusiasm, energy and product knowledge he was always available to help colleagues and customers.
Jon, 63, was a popular industry figure and highly respected by both his colleagues and customers. He will be greatly missed.
Jon is survived by his wife Lynette and sons Luke and Brett. Funeral arrangements will be communicated at the discretion of Jon’s family.
Our thoughts are with Jon’s family and friends at this very sad and difficult time.
