John Machin Director

"Working at Scarborough Borough Council and Derby City Council for twelve years gave me a fantastic start to my career as an EHO, I began to feel frustrated by the bureaucracy of local government and felt passionate about helping businesses with the complexities of environmental health legislation. Our combined experience has enabled us to help businesses with the extensive challenges they face with a straight forward approach that is in-tune with their business needs. We pride ourselves on doing a good job, at a sensible price. We will be pleased to help any business with any environmental health matter." - John Machin CMCIEH CMIOSH OSHCR

Paul Toplass, Director

"After studying applied chemistry at Trent Polytechnic I embarked on an Environmental Health journey from Nottingham Trent University to Leicester City Council where I had an excellent grounding and insight into Food Safety, Health & Safety, Noise, Public Health and pest control work. I always had a passion to be my own boss so therefore decided to use my experience and set up Machin & Toplass and Pest Express with John and Isabel. Being a director of this business has enabled me to understand the day to day pressures and the value of outsourcing to experts where necessary, to enable me to concentrate on adding value to our business. With this in mind we encourage you to let us take control of any legislative issue you do not fully understand, or do understand but do not have the time or resources to manage it. This will enable you to concentrate on growing your business and doing the things you do best."- Paul Toplass, Director
