We at Astra Door Controls would like to take this opportunity to congratulate one of our Key Specification partners John Planck Ltd on reaching a milestone 25th Anniversary. The company has gone from strength to strength since starting up during the recession of 1991, with recently celebrating a record year in both turnover and profitability.

We have worked closely with John Planck Ltd for a number of years and would have to say our experience with Tom Planck (Managing Director) and the team has always been nothing short of professional. They’re entire ethos has been built upon consistently delivering excellent levels of service. They excel in providing highly bespoke products in a variety of finishes and different appearances.

The company’s products and services have been recognised by the industry, as is testified by winning awards in the various categories in the now bi-annual GAI Specification awards, including both categories of “Renovations” in 2001 and “Established Buildings”, proving longevity of use, in 2008/2009 for the Royal Opera House, and “Hospitality/Residential” for The Lancasters development in 2013.

It was an honour to share the celebrations with John, Tom and the team as the Company marked the quarter of a century celebration with a VIP gathering onboard the HMS Gannet situated next door to company headquarters in Chatham’s Historic Dockyard.

Talking about the event Tom Planck said. “We marked the anniversary with a celebratory get-together for all our employees and our customers and suppliers, both past and present,” “We felt it was important to recognise the support that we’ve had as a company since Day One and it was very much a celebration of the efforts that everyone has put in over the last 25 years, as this level of input has been absolutely vital to our success.

“A massive thank you to Astra Door Controls for their support, not only on the supply of their products but also for our 25th anniversary celebrations. They have time and again gone the extra mile to assist us in providing our customers with the support to resolve their problems in a timely and helpful fashion”
