Simon started BCMY Ltd in 2002 with a loan from the Prince’s Trust and initially ran the company from his bedroom.  As a Plymouth University graduate he had launched his career at Envirostream where he set up their inkjet collection recycling programme in 1995.

Having kept pace with increasing demand his company now has several full time staff and operates from an 33,000 sq ft warehouse in Southern England.
