Stewart Small & Son Painters & Decorators

From Back Pletties To Balmoral

Painters And Decorators Dundee, Scotland

Stewart Small and Son, the long established family firm of painters and decorators, have come a long way since their founding in 1894 by the great grandfather of the present owner.

The original Stewart Small started as a one-man operation from premises in Dudhope Park Crescent and the company have had strong links with the Lochee area ever since. Subsequent moves to Lochee Road, Cobden Street, Lochee Road again, then Cleghorn Street, before moving into premises in Seagate, have seen the firm expand to the point where it now employs a staff of 25.

The present owner, the third Stewart Small to spearhead the company, has just been joined by his son Charlie, the fifth generation of the family to become involved in the business.

Stewart is delighted to announce that the company will shortly be renewing links with Lochee when they open a new spray shop at 8 brewery lane.

The move from West Pitkerro will see a new state of the art facility, under the management of George Reilly, offering clients an advanced service in modern premises. The new spray shop can pre-finish new bar counters and bar fittings prior to installation and can also refurbish existing fittings. Telephone Doug MacKinnon on 225444 (fax: 229444) for all your requirements.

Vinyl signage and traditional handlettering to shop front are handled by the firm and there’s a full colour consultancy service to assist clients in making the right choices.

The highly qualified staff regularly attend courses to hone their skills in order to offer the very best service to the customer.

And service and quality are what it’s all about, according to Stewart Small. The company’s notepaper bears these word from John Ruskin: “The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. If you deal with the lowest bidder it is well to add something for the risk you run, and, if you do, then you will have enough to pay for the something better,”

Although the company have taken on contracts abroad, Scotland is home ground and they are busy on contracts in Edinburgh and Aberdeen, as well as Dundee. Recently completed are contracts for re-decorating at the Royal and Ancient at St Andrews and at the royal residence Barmoral and Stewart says that his great grandfather would have been tickled at the way the company has progressed from his days of white washing pletties in Lochee!
