Oltco, the UK’s leading sustainable resin driveway company has just launched a new franchise in Bath, run by local businessman James Gardner.
Oltco will now be delivering resin driveway solutions, including its innovative product, Recycle Bound, across the Bath area.
Recycle Bound is the world’s first recycled driveway solution to help combat the global issue of plastic waste.
Made from waste plastic, including straws, plastic drink bottles and plastic food packaging, from a plastic recycling point, each square metre of Recycle Bound consists of the equivalent of 3,000 plastic straws.
If Recycle Bound was laid on a standard 50 square metre drive, the equivalent of 150,000 plastic straws would be recycled in the process.
The new Bath business is owned and run by James Gardner, who undertook in-depth training at Oltco’s head office in Newquay, Cornwall, prior to opening the franchise.
James says he has always wanted to create his own success and the opportunity to launch an Oltco franchise in Bath seemed like the perfect option.
He said: “For me, a franchise with Oltco ticked all of the boxes for running my own business. From the company values and its high quality products through to its outstanding customer care and innovative outlook, everything resonated with me.
“I am really excited to be launching this franchise and look forward to building on Oltco’s already successful business model and over the next few years, growing Oltco’s portfolio further with more territories.”
Johnny Pearce, Co-Director at Oltco, added: “We are truly delighted to be welcoming James in to the Oltco family and can’t wait to watch Oltco grow across Bath.
“James is a perfect fit for our values led business and shares our passion for Oltco’s industry leading products as well as our commitment to look after the world around us.
“We know that James was the right man for the job as he is totally in line with our company ethos to feel good about the work we do and the decisions we make and shared our excitement for our product Recycle Bound – the world’s first driveway solution made using waste plastic already in circulation.”
