Tom's background and experience is what helps make Oltco such a great product to sell, but the vision behind the company is what makes it really special.

Where it all began

Tom’s background is in Mining Engineering and he spent his early career underground mining and as an engineer on the successful Channel Tunnel Rail Link. Although he was fascinated by these industries his ambition, straight from the careers office at university, was to create and grow a successful business, giving him the freedoms that being your own boss gives you.

With his determination to be a successful entrepreneur, in 2004 Tom began a family business with his parents Christine and Paul, installing and selling safety flooring solutions. Starting from scratch with painstaking cold calls and door to door sales, they grew their business over a number of years. From door to door sales men to experts in their field, they gained the trust of large companies and organisations such as Kellogg’s, Rolls Royce, Wembley Stadium, London Midland, HSBC and Holiday Inn, as well as providing safety flooring for some of the largest factories and warehouses in the UK.

These years in safety flooring gave Tom valuable experience with resin and resin manufacturers. Creating a depth of knowledge which combined with Toms educational background, put Oltco in pole position when resin bound gravel hit the market a few years ago. Tom was very quickly able to test many different brands and gravels and come up with the best combination possible. He also used this knowledge to enable the Oltco Team to educate the public and become the leading installer of resin bound gravel in the South West from the outset.

John Pearce, a good friend of Toms joined the business in 2011. A feel good decision that would be the start of a very successful relationship. Ongoing decisions about the growth of Oltco would take a back seat over the morals and ethics of feel good business.

This feel good ethos along with the introduction of high quality products has seen Oltco grow locally to the point that a local scalable business Franchise seemed inevitable.

“Bringing John into the business brought a ray of sunshine and together we have created the business we had always thought was possible, where ethics don’t need to be compromised and being at work feels great”
