How Higgins Coatings embraces family business values

When it comes to commercial painting, tight timelines often have to be balanced with the demand for a high-quality finish. Accordingly, your choice of a commercial painting company can significantly impact the project's outcome.

With a range of options, it often pays to partner with a contracting company with family business values at its core. At Higgins Coatings, for example, we embody a tradition of trust and excellence that spans generations. Here’s how our principled organisational structure and supportive culture shine through in our work:

We provide personalised attention and care

Family-owned companies offer a refreshing alternative in a world where businesses often prioritise transactions over relationships. At Higgins, we boast 75 years of familial stewardship and understand the value of personalised attention and care. Each project is not just a job but an opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to quality, safety and the environment. We partner with you to provide the tailored care and attention your project deserves.

Long-term commitment and reliability

Family values are synonymous with long-term commitment and reliability. We don’t just seek to complete a project; we aim to forge enduring relationships. Our legacy is built not on fleeting transactions but on a foundation of trust and reliability cultivated over decades. This commitment isn't just about individual accountability; it's about fostering a culture of mutual responsibility and openness within our team. We hold ourselves accountable for our actions and encourage and embrace feedback from our colleagues and customers. We understand the importance of speaking up when something doesn't seem right, ensuring that we maintain the highest standards of quality and reliability in every aspect of our work.

Legacy of expertise and craftsmanship

At the heart of family business values lies a legacy of expertise and craftsmanship passed down through generations. Higgins embodies this tradition, with each member of ‘our painting family’ able to contribute their unique skills and knowledge to uphold the company's reputation for excellence. This deep-rooted expertise is evident in every brushstroke, as Higgins craftspeople bring decades of experience to every project. We take immense pride in our work and its impact, always striving to exceed expectations.

Our commitment to innovation, continuous improvement, and a relentless focus on customer satisfaction underscores our dedication to delivering high-quality work. And after decades in the business, we’ve earned people’s trust by proving year after year that we are reliable and fueled by a passion for our craft.

Community engagement and connection

Higgins isn't just a painting company; we’re an extension of the communities we serve. Our commitment goes beyond profit margins; it extends to making a positive impact on society. Whether through charitable endeavours, local partnerships, or simply being a trusted neighbour, we embody the spirit of community engagement and connection. When you choose Higgins, you're not just hiring a contractor; you're supporting a community-centric enterprise that gives back as much as it receives. We have a rich history of giving, from industry partnerships with the Positive Education School Association and the Association of School Business Administrators, to supporting the mighty Geelong Football Club and the Brisbane Broncos, we love to help. We also actively support many charities, including Camp Quality, R U OK?, Blue Tree Project, and OzHarvest.

The advantages of choosing a commercial painting company with family business values are manifold. From personalised attention and care to long-term commitment and reliability, from a legacy of expertise and craftsmanship to community engagement and connection, Higgins exemplifies the timeless values that underpin success in business. So, the next time you embark on a commercial painting project, consider the end result and the journey you'll undertake with a trusted partner like Higgins.
