Our History

Our company's history dates back to 1945

Before entering into the painting business, our founder Benjamin Soep trained as an artist at Boston's Vesper George School of Art. To complement his art projects, Ben also worked on refinishing fine furniture and finishing projects. The increasing demand for his services inspired him to establish a full service commercial painting company. Ben's vision was to offer builders and property managers a full service painting, coating and special contractor with an artist's eye for detail and high quality.

In 1959, the Soep Painting Corporation was honored with a contract for restoration of the Louis XV interior of Boston's Colonial Theater. The sculpting of the theater's moldings and the painting of the ceiling murals were tasks that required Ben's artistic and business capabilities. That is when Soep formed our reputation for unique craftsmanship and for turning vision in reality.

Soep Painting Corp's reputation continues today as New England's most trusted and capable painting, wall covering, coating, restoration and specialty services contractor.

Ben's philosophy is "there's always a better way to do whatever," and it still today motivates and drives our second and third generation family leadership.
