blubolt reaches 10 year anniversary of providing innovative eCommerce solutions.

BATH is leading the way when it comes to eCommerce, as blubolt celebrates its 10 year anniversary this May.

Based in a five storey townhouse in Queen Square, the company has established itself with its flagship eCommerce platform, bluCommerce, that now powers over £250 million a year in online transactions for a host of well known retailers, some of which can be found on the streets of Bath.

Customers include a variety of well known, award winning luxury and lifestyle brands, including Seasalt, Hush, Pure Collection, Whittard of Chelsea, Robert Welch, teapigs and The Science Museum.

Founders Maxwell Lamb and Chris Mattingly met at school when they were 12 years old, and saw first hand the potential of eCommerce when they began successfully trading Beanie Babies online.

After collaborating on various online businesses and going through university together, they founded blubolt in Bath in 2006. Through building websites for various clients, they quickly realised a gap in the market to develop their own eCommerce platform, and from there, bluCommerce was born.

Chris Mattingly commented,

We’re really excited about the future of blubolt. Our technology has been instrumental in growing our clients’ revenue. Our vision is that one day the platform will be licensed to other digital agencies around the globe, who can then build intuitive eCommerce websites and systems for their own customers.

Maxwell Lamb added

I’m proud of what our team have built together over the years, and it’s really pleasing that we’ve been able to take on so many graduates who went to university in Bath, all of whom are still working here 8 years later!

With significant growth ahead of them and over 30 people working for the company, blubolt expects to double in size within the next two years. They are on a recruitment drive for skilled talent, especially PHP developers, and will soon need larger premises to factor in the anticipated growth over the next decade.
