Healthcare sanitaryware specialist celebrates 100 years

This year Pland Stainless will mark 100 years in British manufacturing.

Established in 1919 on the Lower Wortley Ring Road site in Leeds where it still operates, Pland says it has ‘some exciting plans for the year suitably mark the occasion’. On its formation the business was the Taylor File & Tool Company, but in 1926 changed its name to Taylor Rustless Fittings, as it switched to producing stainless steel butchers’ fittings. In 1936 it became the Stainless Steel Sink Company, reportedly the first UK company to produce stainless steel sinks for the catering/domestic markets. In 1993 it became part of The Spring Ram Corporation, moving its domestic stainless steel sink production to Malta, while in the UK, it evolved to become a key commercial supplier. ​

In 2000 Pland became independent again, and in 2008 the management team acquired the business. The company said: “Throughout the years the business has continued to employ and train skilled engineering personnel to manufacture robust, well-engineered products.”
