In 1972, I opened my first furniture showroom. I was determined to offer top quality fitted bedrooms, bedroom furniture and beds at good value prices and to give my customers the highest possible service.
This wasn’t always easy as suppliers often didn’t share my commitment to quality and delivering promptly with keen prices. I realised I could do better and in 1978 after three years of planning, the first Starplan factory, employing just 10 staff, was opened.
We were at last able to guarantee fitted bedrooms with the quality, delivery and prices in line with my original vision.
Word soon got around and we extended our factory, opening more showrooms throughout the country, but the area we continued to concentrate on was the quality and design.
We didn’t just want to follow fashion and trends; we wanted to set them.
After 40 years in business, my original priorities and vision haven’t changed, but a lot of other things have!
We now have a 150,000 square foot purpose built factory, with state-of-the-art European machinery and a workforce of 150 people (we don’t employ outside contractors).
We are now one of the leading direct-sales fitted bedrooms furniture companies, delivering to over 15,000 homes in the UK every year. However, we are still very much a family business who will always put the customer first. When people ask me how my company can manage to offer such high-quality bedroom furniture at value-for-money prices, I answer with pride; we design it, we make it, we sell it and we fit it!
My personal commitment to you is that we at Starplan fitted kitchens and fitted bedrooms will continue to work hard to offer the quality, choice and value for money our customers have come to expect.
I hope you enjoy browsing through our website and we look forward to helping you create your perfect bedroom.
