We have a commitment to quality and high standards not only in our painting, decorating and finishes, but also in the calibre of our operatives, supervisors and managers. This commitment to quality is enshrined in our operating policies and recognised in our accreditations.

Our approach to Health and Safety is based on the idea of personal commitment. We believe everyone has a duty to take care of themselves and those around them.

The actions of our people are also important to us in achieving our long-term sustainability aims.

We adhere to all current Health and Safety Legislation, and employ a full time Health and Safety Manager to promote Health and Safety throughout our organisation.
