When Higgins Coatings was established in 1949 our founding principle was that "the quality of the service was as important as the quality of the finish". Today, more than ever before, we focus on that same fundamental approach.
Continually growing our offices throughout Australia and New Zealand, Higgins Coatings maintains the key family values that shaped founder Gerry Higgins' business while always looking to the future with innovative and practical solutions to our clients' needs.
Pioneering a 24-hour painting service in the 1950s that attracted many long-term high profile clients including GJ Coles and Ampol, our history is now best demonstrated by an enviable record of successful projects:
Melbourne's MCG and Crown Casino; Sydney's Fox Studios and Royal Prince Alfred hospital; Brisbane's Suncorp-Metway Stadium and Gold Coast theme parks, Adelaide's Embassy Apartments and Treasury Building; Canberra's Government and Parliament House; regional Australia's Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric project and Shell service stations; New Zealand's Primelife retirement facilities; and a vast array of schools, hotels, body corporates and more who utilise our highly regarded maintenance programs.
We're proud of our reputation as the industry leader and are constantly working on the inside so that our employees' professionalism makes a difference on the outside. By providing open, visible management, a productive working environment, staff developmental training and a commitment to occupational health and safety, we continue to work together to deliver excellent service to our loyal clients.
