We take pride in making things amazing.
Company director Ian Martin practised & studied Painting and Decorating 41 years ago at H.M Chatham Dockyard, where he learnt from a long line of Master craftsman that taught him most of the skills he still uses to this day. After winning Apprentice of the year for 3 consecutive years and qualifying with the highest City & Guilds, Ian went on to start his own company in August 1985, since then has passed his knowledge down to his apprentices and employed only the best operatives to fulfill our promise for great customer service. Nowadays you cant buy the training that Ian had back then, combining this with a passion for Decorating and Design with complete knowledge of this industry makes for a fanstastic company to employ. These skills are very hard to find in todays market.
