Tolly Paving was founded in 1987 by Terry Pointer following wide experience in management for both a major block paving manufacturer and a Block Laying Contractor.
Mark, Terry's son, worked for the business for ten years as a block layer, learning the job the hard way from the bottom up and after several years working with other contractors to broaden his experience, returned to the family business to manage the Company's day to day activities.
At the end of 2011 Terry retired and Mark took full control of the business.
Tolly Paving have always been one of the prime movers in the development of machine lay in the UK market and the Company has now laid in excess of two million metres by machine. Mark has personally supervised the vast majority of this giving him unrivalled experience in the mechanical installation of block paving.
Mark has also been instrumental in the company remaining in the forefront of developing technologies in surfacing such as permeable paving, SUDS solutions, green roofs and slab paving on raised pedestals. Working closely with manufacturers to develop these systems has ensured that Tolly Paving are one of the UK's leading installers of all these products.
More recently, as a result of clients requiring the same level of quality and service in natural stone paving and kerbing as the company was providing for block paving, together with the requirement for mechanical handling of many products, Tolly Paving have expanded their services to offer an installation service for these products in full compliance with current legislation.
