Baxter and Gillespie is one of Scotland’s leading painting contractors.
Formed in 1969 by John Baxter and Donald A. Gillespie, the business has established a reputation for high standards of workmanship and customer service. The next generation, Paul Baxter and Donnie Gillespie, took over the running of the company in 1992 and strengthened the business by adding a new director, Paul Doyle. Each director has over 30 years’ experience in the trade.
Baxter & Gillespie has roots firmly in the Glasgow area. From small offices, the company moved to spacious and modern premises in 1993. This Auld Street base is a convenient central location which allows the firm to service contracts throughout the country, a validation of its “Covering Scotland” motto.
The company employs highly-motivated painters and decorators and Ames tapers, all of whom carry CSCS cards. Baxter & Gillespie’s apprenticeships offer opportunities to young tradespeople, a regular intake that helps invigorate the workforce.
Site work is overseen by SMSTS supervisors, master tradesmen committed to furthering the Baxter & Gillespie brand. Many of the supervisors have up to 15 years’ experience with the company, a strong endorsement of its standing within the industry and appreciation of good working conditions.
The painters and decorators are supported by an eight-strong administration team in Auld Street. Throughout all departments, continuous staff development enhances skills and improves the service to clients. Baxter and Gillespie is one of Scotland’s leading painting contractors.
