Oltco launches Lancaster franchise

Oltco, the UK’s leading sustainable resin driveway company has launched its Lancaster franchise which is run by local businessman, Roger Hardaker. Oltco will be delivering premium resin driveway solutions, including its innovative product, Recycle Bound, across the Lancaster and South Lakes region including the major towns of Morecambe, Carnforth, Barrow-in Furness and Kendal.

Recycle Bound is the world’s first recycled driveway solution to help combat the global issue of plastic waste. Made from waste plastic (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. Therefore 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.

Oltco is renowned for its Recycle Bound solution, specialist expertise, premium products, quality installation, proven track record and outstanding customer service. With a passion for innovation and a desire to offer superior products, Oltco is dedicated to delivering unique solutions which are tailored for specific client requirements.

Oltco’s passion for creating eye-catching aesthetics and outstanding customer experience runs through the heart of its franchise in Lancaster. This is something which is echoed by Roger’s commitment to providing a high quality finish on every project he and his team works on. From driveways, pathways, pool surrounds and balconies, to carparks and other outside spaces, Oltco Lancaster provides a top quality solution to all of its clients.

As an experienced businessman, Roger spent 25 years of his career running his own IFA business. As part of this, Roger enjoyed working closely with clients and building valued relationships with them – something which will play an integral part in his success as a franchise owner.

Roger said: “I am really excited to be launching Oltco in Lancaster and the surrounding areas. The company’s values and innovative approach really appealed to me and working with Oltco to launch my own franchise seemed like the perfect option. I am extremely passionate about creating the wow factor for customers and transforming spaces through Oltco’s innovative and high quality products, including Recycle Bound. Oltco’s ethos of feeling good about the work they do and the decisions they make was something that resonated with me and fills me with confidence that Oltco is the right business for me.”

Johnny Pearce, Co-Director at Oltco, commented: “We are over the moon that Roger has decided to launch Oltco Lancaster and join our team. From the moment I met Roger, the combination of his presence, experience and honesty filled me with confidence that he was the perfect fit for Oltco. Oltco is going through a brilliant phase of growth and we know that Roger is the right man to help us continue to do this.”

Tom Stringer, Co-Director at Oltco, added: “We are really looking forward to watching our Lancaster franchise go from strength to strength under Roger’s leadership. He totally embraces our feel good values, something that has played a vital role in our success and because of this, we are confident that Oltco Lancaster will be a huge success too.”
