Our History


Our History

“Hursh Painting Company is successful because we do the job right. We do what we say we’re going to do.
We’re honest, we give a fair price and we don’t cut corners.”

~ Morris Hursh, Founder


Family-owned with a history of quality since 1979.

Hursh Painting Company, Inc. got its start in 1979 when founder Morris Hursh decided to put his skills and years of experience with a large painting contractor in Lancaster to work in his own business. Phil Hursh, son of Morris and Ruth Ann, has been an integral part of the business and became president of our company in 1999.

Growing from three employees when Morris founded our company to nearly 40 today, Hursh Painting has built a reputation of quality work, care for our customers, and emphasis on safety.


Hursh Painting Company still carries on the legacy of its founder today.
As our current president, Phil likes to say “we say what we do and we do what we say”.
