It was on this day in 1976 that Starbank Panel Products began. Established by Gordon and Kath Darbyshire, they set out their business from 6000 sq ft of rented manufacturing space in Wigan and trading began.
Initially supplying the caravan industry with interior panel products, Gordon and Kath; with the help of one employee started to grow the business. By 1991 the business had grown so much that Starbank relocated to a 12000 sq ft unit in Newton-le-willows. As machinery investment increased alongside the workforce and sales. Starbank acquired adjoining units to create a larger 63,000 sq ft facility. In our 40th year of trading we have doubled our manufacturing space to a 166,000 unit located in 16 acres of land, which should be sufficient for another forty years of trading at least.
With a workforce of our 100 skilled staff and a factory of over 35 highly advanced machines we are able to fabricate any of your panel product requirements for interior fit out. The forty years of trading are testament to the quality and value that we always deliver for our customers.
