Our Team

Our Team

We’re a well-established, family owned and operated commercial painting and decorating business located in beautiful Cambridgeshire.

We pride ourselves on prioritising your satisfaction and managing a quality service above all else.

Gary Cope founded the business in 1993 with a passion for creating a company that focussed on providing the level of service in the property market, which is (almost) unmatched. His son, Ashley Cope, joined the business in 2002 and works as our Contracts Manager, overseeing our projects.

We have a team of 40+ painters and specialist skilled decorators to help deliver our commercial work, as well as some of our more unique projects with high-end residential properties and impressive school projects.

We also have a continuing commitment to the environment, which is very important to us as an organisation, to the people we employ and to anyone we engage to work with us. We occupy a building that has been designed with the latest technology to make best use of natural light and energy. We’re committed to the reduction of our carbon footprint and minimising our impact as a company on the environment.

Our environmental measures include:

  • Energy efficient lighting systems with PIR sensors.
  • Energy efficient lamps throughout the building.
  • Maximising our use of environmentally aware suppliers.
  • Shredding and recycling all our paper waste.
