I’m Bertie Tupper, welcome to my website!

Hello, thanks for visiting!

Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Bertie Tupper, founder of TUPPCO. I’m a hardworking, independent, honest individual who thrives on success in a wide range of working environments. Working with others, leading a team or instructing, I have always achieved high results and have rarely missed a deadline.
I am extremely customer focused with an eye for detail and professional attitude. I am always keen to learn new skills, techniques and have always excelled under pressure.

I’m a 3rd generation farmer who diversified by following on in my father’s footsteps; I am a LANTRA & NPORS instructor and NVQ assessor in over 20 categories. I am a confident and proficient instructor/assessor due to my time working in agriculture, landscaping, fencing and construction throughout the U.K, New Zealand and Australia, over the past 15 years. I am also a thorough test examiner.

I have completed many landscaping and fencing contracts across the Cotswolds and my reputation for high quality work is widely known and have worked (and still do!) for a range of clients, including high profile and high-net-worth individuals.
I still enjoy being on the ground, operating machinery or helping to project manage rural work.

This website gives full details of my work past and present. Take a look around and get in touch.

Over the years, I have taken the lead in a range of rural projects across the Cotswolds. My extensive knowledge of equipment, countryside and health and safety give me the confidence to lead and manage a team. I have successfully managed a range of works including landscaping, fencing, tree planting and groundworks. My knowledge of local, trustworthy companies and contractors assist me when project managing. 


I am a qualified and confident machinery and equipment operator in land-based, landscaping and construction industries. I have built up a wealth of knowledge of a different machine makes and models, through my time as an operator. I am available for short term contracts and sometimes at short notice around the Cotswold counties. I keep my skills current through approved awarding bodies NPORS and LANTRA.  

Through Test Examiner 

Through Tuppco, I am a registered and certified thorough test examination centre through BAGMA & CFTS. I can deliver on-site thorough test examinations to meet LOLER & PUWER regulations. I am able to test a range of lifting equipment including telehandler, tractors, MEWPs, forklifts, ATVs, loading shovels etc.

Southwest, West Midlands, South East, North West, Wales, North East Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire, Avon, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Kent, Berkshire, Somerset, Cornwall, Dorset, Devan, Shropshire, Suffolk

What people say about me

Martin Measures - Brushdale Environmental Ltd

Bertie supported us on a very difficult project which needed a skilled excavator operator to work in horrendous conditions whilst avoiding great crested newts. He delivered the job on time, if not a little ahead of schedule, which was impressive taking into account the clay terrain and poor weather conditions. Very professional and we will see more of him I am sure.

Pam Ayres
Poet and Author

In the field of Estate Management Services there is no one more heroic than Bertie Tupper when he erected a field gate in close proximity to my bee hives while the bees went about their business unconcerned!

Will J Walmsley
Managing Director

I have used Bertie on a number of occasions to operate plant for WJW Engineering, he has completed work in quarries, large country estates and farms. From all of my clients I have had very good feedback not only on his operational skills but his manor with other members of staff and his knowledge of health and safety!

Jeremy Hartley - EI Productions

Tuppco provided us at EI Productions with Telehandler training and NPORS accreditation; the training and service from Bertie and Emma was thorough and also enjoyable. Cannot recommend highly enough and we will be back for more training!
