history

Planova was founded in 1964 as a supplier to businesses in Denmark. In a short time Planova had grown to become one of Scandinavia’s largest suppliers of steel systems to the forecourt and supermarket sectors.
During the 60’s Planova cemented its position as the leading supplier of shop fittings to the Fuel industry and amongst many projects designed and delivered the first convenience stores for BP in 1965. Following this – the growth of Planova moved in a higher gear.

Back in 1985 Planova’s first subsidiary was opened in Stockholm, Sweden – Planova AB. One of their main objectives was to service the contract for Statoil won by Planova at that time. In 1993 the company opened a subsidiary in France in a small city called Nogent Sur Seine just south of Paris. It was the first subsidiary in one of the biggest countries of Europe, and the company worked hard building up a good working relationship with the oil chains placed in France. Throughout the 1990’s Planova firmly established its position as the world leading manufacturer of shop equipment to the oil companies within the forecourt sector. Planova supplied ExxonMobil, BP, Shell, TOTAL, TEXACO and many more. In the beginning of 2000 Planova merged with two of the biggest wood production companies in Scandinavia, Striboldt and Hoeg, and by doing so the company was in a position of supplying not only steel fittings, but also furniture made out of wood, acrylic and glass.From 2007 to 2013 the group expanded with additional affiliates in Poland, Germany, UK, China and Bulgaria.

We look forward to another great year and thank customers and suppliers for their loyal and new support.
