SKOPE Industries Limited is a family owned company with a global reputation for designing and manufacturing commercial refrigeration solutions.
We are proud of our family heritage, which began 50 years ago with company founder Sir Robert Stewart’s vision to build the SKOPE brand.
At the age of 25, Sir Robert purchased SKOPE (at that time Robat Industries Ltd) and grew the company from 25 employees to more than 400.
In 2012, SKOPE exited from the heating market, and is now 100% committed to commercial refrigeration.
In its early years, SKOPE operated from one small factory in the Christchurch suburb of Addington. Today, we occupy the same site but have expanded over time to establish a research, design and production plant that takes up the whole block.
SKOPE continues to design and manufacture the high quality, innovative, market-leading products that have earned us our global reputation.
In 2014, Sir Robert Stewart was made a knight companion of the NZ Order of Merit. The same year he wrote his account of starting SKOPE, manufacturing, exporting and holding on to the family business is his memoir, Determined to Win.
SKOPE is a family owned company with a difference, with Managing Director Guy Stewart answering to a board of highly experienced advisors, including four independent directors. This provides us with all the corporate disciplines of a public company.
At SKOPE, we know how important it is to look after our customers, just as one nurtures family. When you work with us, we consider you a part of our extended family and look forward to a relationship that will develop into the future.
