Planet Platforms Celebrates 40 years in business

Bespoke access equipment manufacturer, Planet Platforms, has just celebrated 40 successful years in business.

Founded in 1977 by Pete Pemberton, the Yorkshire Based manufacturer marked the event with an open day at their Wakefield Premises.

The purpose of the day was to recognise the role employees past and present, customers and suppliers have played in shaping the company over the last four decades.

The day also provided Planet with the opportunity to raise funds for their chosen charity for 2017, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA). Over the course of the week £1,000 was raised which is being donated in full to the YAA along with two bespoke maintenance stands for their helicopters.

In forging long and loyal relationships with our employees, customers and suppliers we have made Planet Platforms a first class company to work with and for. I am particularly proud in the way all Planet employees value and understand our customer needs and the positive feedback we regularly receive is testament to this.
— Pete Pemberton, Managing Director
