I am a local man, born here in Bridport.
After I left school I went in to the trade and in 1984 I decided to set up my own business.
Over the next 10 years my Painting & Decorating business increased, so in 1994 my wife, Angelina Gruitt, became a partner and ran the office side of the business.
Over the years my son, Sam, showed a keen interest and in 2008 he qualified at Weymouth College with NVQ 1 & 2 and City & Guilds Painting & Decorating, and has now joined the family business.
He is also a partner
