About Us

Our Mission

Our goal is to be the market leader, providing commercial painting and associated services across Australia.

Our Essence

From humble beginnings 17 years ago, we have grown to be the largest commercial painter in QLD. We always look for new and creative ideas that have the potential to change the way we operate internally and externally.

Our Promise

We are focused on delivering outstanding service and practical cost effective solutions rather than an everyday paint job. Why pay for services you don’t need.

Our Vibe

Our core values are the principles that guide us in what we do and help shape our culture. We take ideas, services and products to the next level.

This year we have



The Usher Group was founded over 17 years ago. Since then, we have been developing new ideas and processes that have transformed the painting industry. Every idea and every breakthrough has been powered by generations of employees who are inspired to make a difference. Their motivation is simply to do their job well.

In 2001, we saw an opportunity to start a small scale painting venture, United House of Kolor (UHK), which in 2004 through expansion and acquisition became Usher and Son


Throughout the early 2000's, enthusiasm for the company's innovative services grew. Hutchinson Builders recognised our capabilities and awarded us our first $1mil plus project.


2008 saw the launch of Usher Systems. This provided our customers with a strategic project delivery process, which ensured we apply the best practices and management skills to deliver on-time and on-budget.


To provide a more comprehensive services offering to our customers, we purchased our first swing stage which eventually evolved into the access company we know today.


Many projects we undertook had elements of signage and painting. It was the perfect timing to launch our signage division. Today, we have a full scale manufacturing facility located on the Gold Coast.


With the continued success of the group and a desire to give back to the community, Usher Love, our charitable foundation was born.


The Melbourne office was officially opened. This set the first steps in motion for the Usher Group to become a truly national organisation.


With the industry needing a superior coating system especially for tier 1 high rise construction, the Usher Groups own paint brand, Baxta first started rolling off the production line in 2014


Usher and Son officially became the largest commercial painting company in QLD turning over $42mil


The company reached 500 plus employees, turning over $80mil and evolved into one of the most recognised commercial applicators in the business. Daily, our team uses over 7000 litres of paint.
