First Solution Consultancy was formed in 2003 by Terry Hudson and was based near Westbury in Wiltshire. Terry had worked in the resin industry, primarily in project management, for the previous 10 years.
When the company started larger blue chip companies within the South West were targeted and we soon built up an impressive portfolio of customers, including companies such as Ryvita, Twinings, Aerocan and Apetito. We worked with several smaller, good quality, specialist contractors completing mainly resin flooring projects.
In February 2005 we became a limited company, "First Solution Consultancy Limited".
In 2008 we created a sub division "First Solution Supplies" as by this time we were also supplying a number of customers with our own, competitively priced epoxy products and started a website which further increased our sales. At this time we also became a distributor for Rust-Oleum, who are the No 1 manufacturer of specialist paints in the USA. Their range includes both "Rust-Oleum", and "Mathys" products and includes a number of innovative market leading products. We have since added our Step-to-Safety GRP anti-slip range and Inter-Lock pvc interlocking floor tiles, which we believe to be one of the best systems of their kind on the market.
Our First Solution Supplies website started to look "tired" and in association with Gareth Hudson we created a brand new website with a new branding and a new name, "First Solution Online". This new website was launched in January 2012. The range of products offered was the same but the new website was easier to navigate, was much more intuitive than the old one and more information was readily available on the site.
In May 2016 we launched this new site. The branding remained the same but the new site is 'state of the art', very quick and both mobile and tablet friendly. Further updates to the site are planned over the coming months which will put us at the forefront of the industry. We also took the opportunity at this time to increase our product range. Further new products will be added shortly.
In February 2017 we moved to Wilton, just outside Salisbury in Wiltshire.
