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’ve 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’re 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.

COMPANY HISTORY

Founded over 17 years ago, Usher Group continues to develop dynamic new ideas and smart processes to transform Australia’s commercial painting industry. We’re proud to now offer the complete range of painting and associated services to meet the often complex and multiple needs of our customers.

Founder Theo Vairaktaris established United House of Kolor (UHK), a small-scale painting company which evolved via organic growth and acquisition into Usher & Son in 2004.

2001

Throughout the early 2000s, our innovative services grew. Hutchinson Builders recognised our capabilities and awarded us our first $1m + project.

2005

We launched Usher Systems to provide our customers with a strategic project delivery process. Usher Systems applies our industry-leading best practice and management skills to deliver projects on time and on budget.

2008

To provide a more comprehensive service offering to our customers, we purchased our first swing stage which eventually evolved into Usher Access Solutions.

2010

Many Usher Group projects include elements of signage and painting so it was a natural progression for us to launch a dedicated signage division. Today, we have a full-scale signage design and manufacturing facility located on the Gold Coast.

2011

Thanks to our continued success and a desire to give back to the community, we created Usher Love, our charitable foundation.

2012

Usher Group in Melbourne was officially opened, laying the foundations for a truly national organisation.

2014

To meet the industry’s need for a superior coating system, especially for tier one high rise construction, we launched Baxta, our own Usher Group paint brand.

2014

Usher & Son officially became the largest commercial painting company in QLD turning over $42m.

2015

The company reached 500+ employees, turned over $80m and evolved into one of the most recognised commercial applicators in the business. Our team uses over 7000 litres of paint daily.
