Skip's and PTH Aluminium & Glass merge operations

Nuku'alofa, Tonga

Skip's and PTH are pleased to announce the merging of Skip's Custom Joinery and PTH's Aluminium & Glass division in Tonga.

This combined entity, creating a design and manufacturing operation focused on quality local production with great service, will operate under the "Skip's" brand and be managed by Dianne Warner as Managing Director.

Aimee, Tui, and the current PTH Aluminium & Glass team will operate from the current site in Ma'ufanga, Tongatapu, during the transition, with manufacturing to ultimately be consolidated in the Skip's Building - a purpose built facility on Bypass Road, Pahu, Nuku'alofa.

The combined team looks forward to benefiting from Dianne's decades of operating experience within Tonga. While the team works through transitional activities, staff at Skip's are available to support all customers, including Aluminium & Glass.

Dianne said, "I'm pleased to have been able to establish this new business relationship and to have such strong support from the PTH executive. There is no doubt that there are synergies between Skip's current business and what PTH's Aluminium & Glass division has to offer, these synergies can only help us create a better operation - new products and services, specialist staff training, and increased production efficiency. These gains will undoubtedly benefit current and future customers. The opportunity to innovate and to revitalize an already skilled workforce is exciting. I have managed Skip's for many years on my own and now to have support from the PTH team is great. We look forward to growing the company further and to exceeding customers' expectations.”

Una Mafi, Executive Director for PTH said, "Dianne and her team have an excellent reputation for quality products, Skip's is well respected in Tonga and we appreciate what Dianne has created. PTH started its aluminium and glass business a few years ago and we know there is tremendous potential for professionally manufactured glass and aluminium products - given the right focus and management with specialist manufacturing experience. Dianne is certainly the best person to lead the new Skip's. We are a supportive shareholder in Skip's and we look forward to developing a proactive sales team to support Skip's further growth"
