A bit of background and history from Cal Phillips and Eco Paint Specialist’s, Inc.;
Starting back in 1977, Cal started Cal’s Home Improvements. Starting a home improvement business early in life was just as rewarding as it is now, mainly helping local community take care of home repairs, and concerns, having that building trade born in him for two generations prior. Getting his self through college, this was a perfect part-time job, doing various jobs from electrical, plumbing, drywall, siding repair and siding replacement to of course a local painter painting interior and painting exterior homes and businesses. Enjoying being outside, an exterior painting job was always welcomed, enjoying the ability of adding protection to one's largest investments. Purchased his first airless spray rig back in 82', which was a Sherwin-Williams Nova Graco 495, which airless rigs were very new to the painting industry. It came in very handy, instead of using the pot gun with compressor, always having to re-fill qt. pot. It was at that point, Cal was really on to something, As a Handy-man, in the general home improvement field, it seemed like every job completed, included some degree of interior painting, or exterior painting, which he enjoyed most of all, out of the various home improvement jobs. Having a much smaller operation back then, entailed carrying a wider range of tools for the jobs at hand, and thought by 1980 it would be much easier if they carried one trade of tools. When he decided to do this, he made a commitment to his self and local community that he would be the best this industry has to offer for that particular industry. Always putting the customer first, quickly became the companies philosophy, Cal developed a company tag line that is still with them today, “Customer Satisfaction is Our Main Concern”. Over the years we have completed 1000’s of interior painting and exterior painting jobs, along with 100's of Commercial Painting, treating each property as our very own.

By the early 90's, having several journeymen painters working for him, he knew they needed to form a Corporation.During the early Spring of 93', seriously deciding on a company name, all points pointed to the first name Eco, being an acronym for economical, and ecological.
