Rooted in Cornwall
Oltco continues to expand around the UK, which means more local job opportunities at its headquarters right here in Cornwall.
As Oltco, the UK’s leading sustainable resin driveway company, continues to grow and evolve around the UK, it’s great to hear that Directors, Tom Stringer and Johnny Pearce, are continuing to focus on their roots, growing their Cornish based team and creating job opportunities for local people.
In fact, we’ve learnt that Oltco recently expanded the installation team with the addition of two new Trowellers, Carlos and Bradley, son and step-son of Oltco Account Manager, Loida Ramirez. This brings the installation team up to a total of six, and if Oltco’s continued growth is anything to go by, we can expect that number to continue increasing.
Also recently hired is Kris Evans, who regular readers of Cornwall Living may remember from our last issue. Kris, Oltco Cornwall’s new Sales Support Manager, is responsible for carrying out site visits and ensuring the operations are running smoothly. But much like the rest of the team, his skillset is somewhat multifaceted, and last issue he even offered us his top garden tips, to help get our gardens ship-shape for the spring and summer season.
Carlos, Bradley and Kris represent but a fraction of the growth Oltco has seen in recent months. In fact, in 2020 alone, Oltco launched a total of 16 new franchises across the UK, at the same time expanding its HQ team by hiring Tash Eldon as Office Support, as well as recruiting five new Account Managers – Elliott Jolly, Loida Ramirez, Laina Ferris, Jenni Cullis and Linzi Goodman – all of whom are based in Cornwall. With 36 areas franchised in total, and with more planned for 2021 (as well as an expansion of the Cornwall office), it’s fair to say that Oltco will only continue to provide more jobs to local people. At a time when job opportunities in the Duchy have perhaps never been more highly coveted, this is a reassuring thought indeed.
