The Roots of Success

The CEOMagazine recently spoke to Guy Stewart, SKOPE's Managing Director, about SKOPE’s deep family roots, its strong culture, and its unique place in the market. Two generations of Stewart family members have worked together to build SKOPE into the globally renowned company it is today. When Sir Robert Stewart first bought the company that would grow into SKOPE Industries Limited 45 years ago, it employed 25 people out of a small factory in Christchurch, New Zealand. Today, it boasts a family of over 400 employees and is run by Guy, Sir Robert’s son. 

 

Under Sir Robert and Guy’s leadership, the company has flourished, building a global reputation for designing and manufacturing commercial refrigeration solutions. Over the years, the organisation has shifted and evolved, moving from its original focus—heating products—to completely focus on market-leading commercial refrigeration.

"As a second generation, I view it as my responsibility to take what my parents created and build on it to make it better and more successful."
