JOHN - MANAGING DIRECTOR and PRODUCT DESIGNER

John Wilkes

Director

Based in Stockport Cheshire, Europlanters are the leading British manufacturer of Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) planters and we are proud to announce over 28 successful years in business.
Established in 1990, Europlanters has grown from strength to strength and our achievements of the last 28 years in the industry have been publicised worldwide.
Over the years we have worked especially hard to deliver consistently high quality products, constantly improving our factory to provide an even better, faster service to all our customers.
My passion for fibreglass began from making canoes as a child at Uppingham School and consequently I started Europlanters as a sole trader in 1990, and even through continued global economic uncertainty the team has grown into a company that now employs over 30 people from the local area.
We are continually expanding our 20,000+ square feet production areas, offices and warehousing buildings. As part of our continued growth plan we have installed a new 24 square metre industrial spray booth with a baking facility to make the finish harder and more durable. In 2016 we manufactured our own fibreglass building in order to expand the existing office space and house additional sales and admin personnel.
The manufacturing workforce has also grown in line with the site; with additional management personnel, full-time production staff and office staff supplementing the original team – some have been with the company for many years.
We collaborate with garden designers, landscapers, architects and gardening enthusiasts to create a variety of landscape schemes. We have had some challenging and exciting projects over the years and have thoroughly enjoyed working with all our clients to ensure their visions come to realisation, in line with budgets and time scales.
On our website we proudly reflect on some of the projects we have accomplished recently, and thank those who have supported and driven the company forward into the future.
