John Planck founded the company in 1991 as the first specialist architectural ironmonger in Kent. The company commenced trading from Rochester and quickly established itself with local builders and contractors before developing relationships with architects and other specifiers in London and the South East, to become one of the country’s leading architectural hardware specialists providing hardware solutions for new and refurbished buildings.
John’s experience and status in the industry encouraged many manufacturers from both home and overseas, to be associated with the company helping us to expand even further the range of products we are still able to offer today. John Planck retired at the end of 2009 but the company is still going strong retaining his name and building on the reputation gained under his guidance.
Specialising in architectural hardware for doors and windows, the company also supplies access control, automatic and pocket door systems for, amongst others, residential, commercial and public building projects. It has access to products that satisfy all the demands and budgets of its clients.
