Growing By Working Together

To be the preferred partner for laminate & decorative panel product fabrication across all interior fit out markets in the UK
Bringing value to the surface

Starbank Panel Products Ltd was established by the Darbyshire family in 1976. To this day we remain a family owned and run company. From humble beginnings supplying the motor home industry with laminated panels Starbank quickly established a reputation for quality crafted panel products.

As our customer base grew year on year, we introduced additional services such as postforming, edgebanding and cnc fabrication to cover a multitude of project requirements.

Starbank’s foresight and manufacturing experience over 4 decades has led to very clever investments in the right technology with the right partners. Our people are our core strength and together we are proud to have become regarded as one of the UK’s premier fabricators for decorative panel products.

The future is a bright one and we will continue to exceed expectations along the way.

Did you know that Starbank were the first company in Europe to achieve an Integrated Management System encompassing Quality ( ISO 9001 ), Environment ( ISO 14001 ) and Health & Safety ( OHSAS 18001 ) Standards together with a joint Chain of Custody for FSC® C014528 & PEFC components. Starbank also maintain a responsible purchasing policy in which we strive to buy in products that are FSC® or PEFC certified as standard.


Even though many manufacturers claim to be able to offer you FSC® C014528 and PEFC certified products complete with chain of custody, in fact only a few manufacturers actually can. Starbank is one of them. We have gained all the relevant certification to offer full chain of custody FSC® products. To understand the FSC® process further and to check if your current supplier is certified please follow the link below.


As part of our 14001:2015 IMS credentials we try to dispose of any of our waste products in the most environmental friendly way possible. At Starbank we deal with multiple material types and combinations. To make it clear to all our customers about what we are able to do with all the waste products for each material type and combination, we have created our environmental page.
