Ian Owen, sad news - Scanwel

It is with great sadness that Scanwel would like to announce the untimely and unexpected passing of Ian Owen, joint director of the company since 1995. Ian died suddenly at his home on 27th of September 2019 aged 59. Loving husband of Rachel, beloved dad, grandpa, brother and son. A public funeral will take place at St Asaph Crematorium LL17 0LG at 11 o clock on Saturday, October 12th, 2019. Family flowers only but donations gratefully accepted in memory of Ian towards Cancer Research UK. A dedicated page has been set up so that any donations would be visible to Ian’s family.

At this difficult time, Scanwel would like to reassure our customers that as far as possible we are continuing with the business as usual. Rupert Smith will take on day to day decision making with the support of Ian’s family and our remaining director. Our dedicated team, production capacity and stock remain as they were before these tragic events, and we still intend to complete the move of the Scanwel factory to our new facility in the coming weeks.
