Our History

"It all started at our kitchen table with an old mini car, ladders and the paint. The journey then began for the two brothers, from a family of eleven children in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. Established in 1964 as H & T Dickinson, the company became Dickinsons Decorators in the 1980s upon the retirement of one of the brothers, continuing as this to the present day with the second generation of the family. Over the last half a century the company has built a reputation within the construction industry for quality and perfection and delivering excellent training and experience of its workforce from the supervisors to the apprentices to achieve a 'Dickinsons' standard. Completion of tight deadlines is within our ethos and creating a 'can do' attitude is within our motto. Where others may see problems we see challenges that will be overcome."
