LANCASTER, PA – May 2, 2018 Lancaster-based painting contractor, Ville Painters, Inc. is celebrating 30 years in business. Three decades have passed since Steve Dietrich opened his company in Millersville, PA, initially hiring ambitious college students, hence the name ‘Ville” Painters. Fast forward to 2018, the company has grown to a staff of 18, including 14 craftsmen. In the early days, Dietrich hired college students but quickly shifted to professional painters to provide the high quality clients expect. Ville Painters also looks towards the future by providing internships to Career & Technology Center students as they prepare to enter the workforce.  He attributes their success and staying power of his family-run business to superior workmanship, commitment to customer service, and cultivating strong relationships with clients and partners. Ville Painters now serves the needs of hundreds of businesses and residents across Central Pennsylvania. To celebrate, Ville Painters hosted a 30-year anniversary “thank you” celebration for clients, partners, and friends at the Lancaster Country Club last week. The event featured a towering paint can-inspired cake, branded chocolates by Evans Candies, hundreds of job photos, and ended with Dietrich donating $3,000 to Schreiber Pediatrics. “Although much has changed in thirty years, one thing has not – and that is our dedication to serving our clients and community to the very best of our ability,” says Dietrich. “I deeply value the relationships we have built over this time… relationships with our teams, clients, partners, friends, and the greater business community. We could not have realized this milestone without their support, and see this anniversary celebration as a small way to express our sincere gratitude.” The future looks bright for Ville Painters as they strive to diversify and expand their services, continually train their staff, and grow their clientele. “Thirty years in business is just the beginning,” says Dietrich, who looks forward to the next generation joining to reach even higher goals and aspirations.
