Our 50 Years of History

PBP Services has been trading since 1968. Founded by the late Peter Bruce (Patsy) who previously served almost 20 years in the merchant shipping services as Bosun’s Mate whose main task was organising the maintenance painting of the ships in which he served. Patsy moved ashore to start up in business. Initially offering a painting service to the fishing vessels based at the ports of Fraserburgh, Peterhead and Macduff, he progressed into Industrial and Commercial painting of Factories, offices and homes. In the early days painting was a hard task because of the limited methods available for preparation and applications. Steel was cleaned down by chipping, needle de scaling and wire brushing. The only method of application was by paint brush followed by the roller. However, as time passed Patsy was always at the forefront of any new equipment to come to the market in order to increase efficiency and improve on quality by investing in pressure washing machines, paint spray and shot blasting equipment, hot metal zinc spraying protection and Insulation foam spray/injection equipment.

Over the years the business has continued to grow in the Marine, Industrial and Commercial Coatings Industry with contracts awarded throughout Scotland and England by supermarket chains, hospitals, factories etc. Contracts awarded throughout the UK, Ireland, Denmark, Norway, Faroe Islands and Greenland to new and long established customers and friends. The business is now driven on by Patsy’s son – Peter Bruce and his sons. Peter Bruce who joined the family run company on leaving school in 1984. He returned to Technical College for 2 years where he obtained City and Guilds Qualifications for site procedures, painting, decorating, paperhanging, sign-writing and graining. With training an ongoing process, Peter Bruce completed courses and passed exams at the Institute of Corrosion in Sheffield, qualifying as a paint inspector and fireproofing inspector. It was 1991 when Peter Bruce and his sons officially take over the business after Patsy’s sudden demise due to heart attack at the age of 62. The company continues to go from strength to strength having a long established and committed work force, and meeting the highest standards of services with all of its employees having qualifications in all levels of NACE Coating Inspection. The company takes great pride in achieving customer satisfaction and good working relationships, just as the late Peter Bruce and his team endeavoured to do all those years ago.
