President and Vice Presidents sitting at a desk

We are a 30 year-old, family owned and operated, commercial painting company. We were founded by Henry and began in the residential sector. His sons Jon and Josh joined us 14 years ago and became partners in 2017. Jon is the Head of Operations and Sales; Josh leads Project Management and Field Operations.

Henry’s sons, David and Matt, are also active members of the Company.

By 2008, we had invested in the required infrastructure and equipment to advance to a capable commercial painting company.

Our evolution has included investment in quality recruits, training and remuneration. We also invest in the community that helped build us, willingly and often.

For ongoing professional development and industry knowledge we belong to the following organizations:

Invested in our Crew

While we have substantial investments in infrastructure and equipment, our largest asset remains our crew. That’s why we choose our colleagues carefully based on their professionalism and work ethic. We train them on technical skills where necessary and we remunerate them appropriately.

Working here should improve all of our lives. We believe in our values and count on total buy-in from our crew. If there is a question about something, we listen, challenge and debate until we’re all in. The dividends are attractive for all of us, especially our clients.

“They continue to set a good example of what a dedicated, engaged and positive employer looks like.”

Invested in our Community

Since 2003, the economy in Southwestern Ontario has experienced peaks and valleys and, in some cases, outright transformation. Yet, according to Statistics Canada, our employment rate grew by over 10%. In our observation, that’s due to our community’s resilience.

Community mean a very large family — in which we are a member. We invest in our community because its members have been carrying us on their shoulders. The stronger those shoulders, the healthier we’ll remain.
