John Planck Ltd was founded by the late John Planck, with the backing of friend and popular industry figure, John Monaghan. John Planck Ltd operated from its office in Kent, John Monaghan Ltd from their office in Yorkshire.Sadly, John Monaghan passed away in 1991 following a short battle with cancer. The relationship with the entirety of the Monaghan family continued, as it does to this day – with Frances, his daughter on the board.
The history of John Planck Ltd, John Monaghan and HAF is all intertwined – the success of the company as it stands today is down to the three in combination; John Monaghan for starting his entrepreneurial ventures in the 70’s, HAF for their successful range of hardware in the 80’s and John Planck for the direction that took the company through to the 00’s.
The previously separate companies operate together whilst celebrating their individual heritage. We operate nationwide from our three sales offices – John Planck in Kent, John Monaghan in Yorkshire and HAF in Hertfordshire, with our distribution centre also in Yorkshire. Whilst we may have different names we very much operate as one family unit, with several employees and Directors related to the founders, John Planck and John Monaghan.
Our team of architectural ironmongers is highly qualified, with generations of experience and technical expertise.
