Bob Nicholls

Technical / Managing Director


Following 11 years as a Mechanical Engineer / Millwright / Fitter in the heavy chemical industry and 9 years carrying out inspection and NDT on heavy engineering, aircraft and fairground rides, I realised that my real passion was for the safety inspection of amusement devices. Since that decision, I became part of the growth of the fairground and amusement park Industry, gaining my first training from Robert Ward Engineering and I have been the Managing Director of LTC Ltd since 1987.

I’m very proud of this company we’ve formed; keeping up with the ever changing design and technology of leisure machines has been both exciting and challenging. I hope I have passed on to my team the wealth of knowledge I have gained over the years, whilst still allowing them to bring their own new skills and forward thinking to LTC Ltd, with safety and serviceability always of paramount importance.
