Almost three decades of decorating excellence
Swirlforce was founded in 1992 by Robert Perry and Richard Marriott. Building on an existing eight-year working relationship and a wealth of shared experience, the pair decided to combine forces to provide high-quality commercial, retail and industrial decorating services.
One of the first projects that put Swirlforce on the road to success was a contract with Alton Towers, where we redecorated kiosks and rides. Other assignments in our early days included decorating a number of settings from petrol stations to nursing homes, as well as a project involving six ASDA stores across the Midlands.
Our small team of six decorators went on to work on multiple pubs for Mansfield Brewery, which led to further contracts, such as with JD Wetherspoon.
In 1998, we purchased our current offices, which gave us the space to grow to a team of 16 by the early 2000s. Operating our fleet of several branded vehicles meant we could start to work further afield, and, over the next few years, we completed projects for a number of hotels, including The Bellhouse at Beaconsfield and The Hilton on London’s Park Lane.
