Skillcrown marks its 25th Anniversary in 2018


Here at Skillcrown we are delighted to be celebrating our 25th Anniversary in 2018.  A family-run business, Skillcrown launched in 1993 by Mr Yalipray Osman as a conversion specialist during the recession. Although a risky time to set up a company, Skillcrown thrived and has evolved to become a large multi-purpose developer, with over 40 employees undertaking a variety of challenging and exciting projects. To mark our 25th milestone, we have launched a commemorative logo for the occasion and intend to hold a party in the summer months.

Skillcrown first opened its doors at a small office in Bexley but soon expanded and moved to larger premises in the Bromley borough in 1996, where we are located today. Having been involved in the business since 1997, Salik Osman, son of Yalipray (Ossie) took on the role as Managing Director in 2010.  Since then Skillcrown has taken on some of its biggest projects, including two hotels and developments for some of the largest Housing Associations in the UK.  In 2014 Skillcrown also won an LABC Brick Award for commercial development of the year for a mixed use development in Bexleyheath.

Salik Osman states “When I reflect on where we were as a company when I started, to where we are now, it has been an incredible journey. The growth has been exceptional and this year has already started on a high. We have nine projects already under construction and further projects at different stages in the planning process. I am personally delighted with the progression and excited at the prospect of where the company is heading in the next 25 years!”

To celebrate our achievements over the years, Salik commissioned a new anniversary logo to be used in its yearly marketing. The logo design is centred around the Skillcrown houses emblem used in our company logo with the number 25 written in bold, and text circling the overall design. All of which is finished in a metallic silver sheen, giving the logo a modern take on the anniversary hue.

“We are delighted to be in our 25th year of business, with a new logo to mark the occasion, and a celebratory party to look forward to in the summer.  We believe this year is going to be one of our best. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our staff and everyone who has contributed to our success over the past 25 years,” expresses Salik.
