Our History

Where did it all begin? The timeline below shows the journey to date and how we got to the stage of launching Zirkon. 


TP Knotweed Solutions was founded

Tom Payne saw the opportunity to create a specialist company that could remediate land affected by Japanese Knotweed and other invasive plants.


Incorporation & New Offices

2011 proved there was strong market demand for our services. In January 2012, TP Knotweed Solutions Ltd was incorporated. Oliver Zito joined the company and our first offices opened in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire


Rapid Growth & Office Move

TP Knotweed Solutions began to scale up quickly, carrying out herbicide treatments and Japanese Knotweed excavations nationwide. Our services were being used by some major companies: Buckingham Group, TEP, Speller Metcalfe, Workman LLP, Wickes, Ringley Chartered Surveyors, Gleeds, Willmott Dixon. The HQ was relocated to Banbury, Oxfordshire.


Continued Growth, Systems & Marketing

Growth enabled investment in a leading CRM system alongside site and office staff. TPK reduced quotation delivery times by over 90% via systems and automation. Operations also saw vast improvements.


Larger Premises, Staff & Commercial Expansion

Another office move and 12 new staff members joined throughout 2015. We also saw a significant increase in commercial clients all requiring remediation throughout the UK.


Reputation & Repeat Clients

TPK beginning to build a trusted network of repeat clients within residential and commercial sectors.


Excavation & Remediation Contract Wins

During this year TPK secured a significant number of high value excavation and remediation contracts from our commercial clients. Clients also wanted other services providing to facilitate development works.

Some top level stats include: Approximately 4,350 sites treated, 31,150 site visits, 78,400 tonnes of material excavated, 908,977 miles driven and 218,800m2 treated.
