The Tighe name has been involved in the painting industry for over 50 years and throughout that time has striven to give clients a quality service.

Wadworth Viaduct


With the advent of Quality Management Systems and Accreditations we have ensured our position at the forefront of the industry by attaining ISO 9001 and National Highways Sector Scheme 19A accreditations.  These are audited externally by Lloyds Register Quality Assurance and have been held since 2007.

Our commitment to quality runs from operative to Director level.  95% of our workforce holds ICATS (Industrial Coatings Applicator Training Scheme) and/or CSCS accreditations, making them accountable for the quality of work they produce.


Our supervisors have years of experience in our trade, hold SSSTS and/or IOSH qualifications, and most have NACE or ICorr Paint Inspector status.  At managerial level all of our Contracts Managers have at least Level 2 NACE or ICorr qualifications and 4 members of staff, including our Contracts Director, have the hard earned Level 3 NACE accreditation.  Our independent in-house QA team carry out regular site inspections and audits to ensure compliance with the strict quality controls and standards we uphold.

By insisting on the best from ourselves we believe that we give our clients premium service and quality.  Our levels of repeat business and the references we are able to obtain for potential new clients bear witness to the success of our approach.
