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.
