Covid-19 has had a heavy impact on all of us for over a year now. The difference however between now and then, is how our community has come together to protect the health and wellbeing of those around us.
The health and safety of our employees, clients and community has always been one of the highest priorities for Bakers & Co. And given the current circumstances we are all facing, we would like to assure you that any and all additional precautions are being taken to further ensure the wellbeing of our community. We are constantly monitoring Queensland Health Department and Queensland Government updates on restrictions and guidelines as they are announced. These guidelines have been implemented into our company policies and procedures to ensure we’re taking all necessary precautions.
Being part of the building and construction industry, we are grateful to have been able to continue working throughout these tumultuous times. Bakers & Co Painting And Decorating are still fully operational across Brisbane and SEQ, working hard on our industrial, commercial and residential painting projects. As most of you are aware, we do not use subcontracts for any of our works and all our painters are full time employees of Bakers & Co. Our management and admin staff have been working tirelessly to keep our business operating for our 40+ employees and their family members, whilst keeping their health and safety our main priority. We are also extremely grateful for all of our customers for their support throughout this time, helping to keep us afloat.
