Managing Director

Martin Robinson

Martin set up Sustaburn in 2008. He has a background in construction: starting as a Structural Engineer, moving on to complete a degree in Construction Project Management, and then working for Laing O’Rourke for 8 years. He has taken his wealth of experience in construction and passion for renewable technologies to set up Sustaburn - a company with a focus on quality and customer service. Outside of work (in the small amount of time spent outside of Sustaburn!), Martin enjoys spending time with his family, who are growing up fast. Most Sunday mornings in the winter months are spent watching his middle son play rugby, but when time allows, the push bike is out on the open road... and its nice to sneak in a bit of skiing now and then!

Tom designs the heating systems we install. He is an expert in renewable technologies. He is a keen cyclist and spends his time outside of work with his young family. He also has the best line in woolly hats!

Supervising Installer

Steve Wrigley

Steve joined Sustaburn in May 2014. He has over 20 years' experience in plumbing and heating, and holds all the relevant industry qualifications (HETAS). He has also been to Austria to study advanced combustion training at KWB. A keen cyclist outside of work, he is married with 2 children - which, he says, does not leave much time for anything else!

Service Engineer & Installer

Toby Atkinson

Toby joined the team in 2011. He maintains and services the boilers we install, as well as working with Steve and Jack to install new systems. He fills his spare time with downhill mountain-biking, skiing, snowboarding, cycling, swimming and go-karting.... to name but a few!

He has a keen interest in renewable technologies, having served a full apprenticeship followed by 6 years' experience in the field. Outside of work, he enjoys cycling, running and going to the gym.
