Our Culture

Our workplace is one of collaboration, teamwork and innovation. We are a lean manufacturer. Continuous improvement is the backbone of how we operate.

Effective communication is vital and we focus on the 3 C’s:

  • Clear
  • Concise
  • Courteous

Corporate Social Responsibility

We have supported The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity since 2019. Our employees wanted to “give back” and choose an organisation which has helped many people locally. Throughout the year we undertake a variety of initiatives to raise funds for this important cause from raffles through to “fun days”.

Team Testimonials

We believe that working at Designplan will benefit you personally and professionally. However, don’t just take our word for it!

“I’ve worked at Designplan for more than 25 years. The best parts of my role includes being involved in the lean journey and having no two days the same. I’ve worked in the factory, production and operations. I have been promoted from an Assembly operative through to supervisor and then manager. I have now moved up to Factory Planner.”

Lainie Bick

“Working at Designplan has allowed me to be involved in some really interesting projects including automation and standardisation initiatives. I have also evaluated and improved manufacturing methods in my varied role.”

Niru Thayaparan
Production Engineer

“Joining a new company is always a bit daunting, especially in a pandemic! However, it still felt like a ‘normal’ process despite all the extra pre-cautions in place. The team was welcoming and I had the extra support of a “buddy” to help me settle in.”
