Founder and Managing Director

Over the last 20 years I have been fortunate enough to work for many major blue chip companies as well as private equity backed businesses, both here in the UK and in Europe. In that time I have held senior roles delivering financial profitability and commercial optimization.

The sectors I have operated in include automotive, finance, and utilities although my true passion and where it all started for me was in the aviation sector. Although all businesses are very different, the one common objective they all share is to achieve a positive customer experience. I now live between the UK and Spain but at the end of 2022 I decided to establish Yellow Octopus. 

Yellow Octopus is solely financed though my own capital which allows me to independently influence the strategical steers without investor or shareholder consideration. I personally recruit, select, and appoint all our contractors and team members throughout the organization as I firmly believe that business is built on the people who deliver it.

My key objective is to deliver a 5* service proposition without allowing the hurdles that the corporate arena sometimes creates which can detract from being able to do this.

Property Security Upgrades

In the event you move home or are victim to an intruder, we are able to visit your property and conduct a thorough assessment with a view to upgrading your existing door and home security.

Non-Destructive Entry

When we arrive at a lock out we will make an assessment to ascertain whether we can gain entry through a non-destructive entry method. This isn't always possible as lock standards and effectiveness are improving all the time meaning we may have no option but to break the lock. However this will always be our last option when considering which entry method is the right one.

Broken Key Extraction

In the event a key is snapped in the lock, we will look to extract the key without damaging the lock. If you have a spare key then you can continue to use the lock. However if not then we can replace the existing lock with a set of new keys.

Domestic and Commercial Property

Commercial property security should never be compromised as a number of the business assets can be housed in your business premises. Whether you have an office or warehouse we can offer our full range of services in a reactive and proactive proposition.

Burglary Repair

Regretfully burglaries are on the increase with over 250,000 reports across the Uk in 2022. In the event you are burgled our locksmith can replace the damaged lock and fit new replacement locks. In addition to this they will normally look to upgrade the previous lock to give you greater peace of mind in terms of being more intruder secure.

Contract / Account Invoicing

Lock Changes

If you have recently moved home it is always wise to change all the locks as you can have the confidence in knowing who has access to your property. We can offer a complete service covering all external and internal locks for all doors and pending on the locks fitted we will also look to upgrade these to bring you a better overall home security solution.

Lock Repairs

Depending on the lock you have we can repair locks if they are broken or require some expert attention. This service is commonly used on combination locks where we can reprogram these if the code has been forgotten or you require a new code.

UPVC Mechanism

In the event that your UPVC doors fail we can remove the internal mechanism and fully install a replacement. In the vast majority of instances when a UPVC door fails, it will most often than not be the mechanism that has broken.

Door Re-alignment

In the event a lock is not aligning then the door will normally require a re-alignment. We would usually adopt a heel and toe technique when doing this which our expert locksmiths are vastly experienced in performing.

Lock Out

In the event you lock yourself out of a property or misplace the keys, our expert locksmiths with gain entry to your property promptly and as non-destructively as possible. Once entry has been gained our locksmith may need to replace the lock depending on the entry method or may recommend a lock upgrade.
