What we do

Resource provides high-level commercial and management support to its growing number of partner companies. These companies benefit from the financial, legal, and operational expertise, as well as the entrepreneurial spirit, found within the Resource team.

About Resource

Resource Ltd is a ‘Family Office’ responsible for managing the estate of the late Nick Williams OBE. The company has a dynamic investment approach and holds a majority stake in 16 operating companies within its core portfolio. Acting as a private equity investor, Resource collaborates closely with the leadership teams of each business. The investments span various industries, with a focus on the construction-building products manufacturing sector, which accounts for half of the portfolio.

Additionally, Resource is engaged in ventures related to self-storage, document storage, office and co-working spaces, industrial property, motor vehicle distribution and servicing, IT and software development, as well as care facilities for vulnerable families and other services. These investments are actively managed and primarily located in the UK and Europe. Leading the team is Sean Allison.

Our ‘North star’ as a Family Office is to follow our founder’s belief that our portfolio of companies are not just corporate entities, but genuine partners whom we truly value and respect for their operational expertise and experience.

Missions & values

Our mission is based upon our founder’s belief that we exist to help our partner companies to be the best they can be. We do this by supporting them in putting in place the right structures, systems, and skills for each particular organisation, helping them maintain effective management and good commercial decision-making. The Resource ethos is simple: work hard, develop our teams, act with integrity and be professional.

Nick Williams Late Founder

I started Resource over 30 years ago, fuelled by my vision to create a network of partner companies sharing their resources, support and success. Since then, Resource has grown into a well-established system and I’m proud to lead it.
