Prokil was founded by Jim Thorne in 1965 in Bournemouth and has provided the residents of Bournemouth and surrounding areas with damp and timber treatments alongside excellent customer services. In August 2010, Jim decided it was time to retire and passed on his knowledge and experience to Carlo Marsango, current owner of Prokil.

Carlo has extensive experience in the building and property maintenance industry and has developed the Prokil brand over the last 8 years. Carlo has a strong vision for the brand and sees potential in creating a Prokil network across the UK via Franchising opportunities.
