Planex : COVID-19 update 4

23 . 04 . 2020

To Our Valued Customers, Suppliers and Friends,

I trust that you all had a refreshing Easter break and survived the chocolate excesses and the isolation.

On our return to Hallam we have quickly adjusted to the “New Normal” and all that it entails - social distancing, sanitising everything in sight, and online meetings with various degrees of success and a few hilarious hiccups.

One of the joys of physically working from our Hallam factory is having the opportunity to see products actually being manufactured and customer orders being readied for delivery. For instance, yesterday in final assembly there was a whole row of brightly coloured custom-sized pedestals being fitted out. Further along, there was row upon row of Linea acoustic sliding door cabinets and planter boxes in beige-red being assembled and in-between these, was a row of xLockers with custom door perforations being cabled for hard-wired locks.

This clearly reinforces and highlights what makes Planex successful. Being local we are able to produce boutique batches of customer-specific pedestals as well as whole floor quantities of storage cabinets for a major CBD fit-out. All with minimum fuss and with short lead-times.

Our sales, design and manufacturing teams are fully functioning and ready to respond to your current and future needs and our flexible manufacturing techniques and processes means that customer-specific customisations for large or small projects are readily achieved.

We believe that this level of customisation and personalisation will have a significant role to play in the "New Normal", and Planex is well positioned to respond.

Wishing everyone a thoughtful and reflective ANZAC day.

Jean-Pierre.
