Our People

Our team at Skin for life exist to build the businesses of our customers. The recommendations we make to them are the one's we would make if we owned their businesses. These are made without regard to our own short-term interest. This earns their respect, trust and builds a long term relationship built on solid foundations. These relationships extend to our manufacturers who we have not changed since day 1 and we are very fortunate to have highly skilled engineers, technicians and a scientist along with strong research and development departments. We all work varied hours to accommodate our customers and genuinely love what we do.
