From newcomer to the Nordic region's second largest snus manufacturer
In 2002, three friends, Ged Shudall, Titus Wouda Kuipers, and Markus Bonke, founded Skruf with a bold vision to challenge the prevailing snus monopoly and revolutionize the industry with a modern approach. Despite the initial skepticism, their determination and innovative mindset proved successful. Today, Skruf stands as the Nordic region's second-largest snus manufacturer with over 300 dedicated employees, and their journey of growth and innovation continues.
