 Our Story

Grandpa Moffitt

George Moffitt’s family immigrated from Scotland and settled in Providence, Rhode Island. George worked his way into the painting industry and was employed painting for Brown University and the Providence Public Works Department. In 1959, he packed his family a station wagon and headed west to chase better opportunities and a milder climate. Settling in Modesto, California, he began at 30-year career at Gallo Winery, which culminated with George as the Paint Superintendent. During this time, he advanced techniques for sandblasting the interiors of vintage tanks between harvests, among other innovations.

 Our Story

Dennis Moffitt

Dennis Moffitt found himself in the painting trade in Modesto, California and opened Dennis Moffitt Custom Painting in 1981. He focused on residential painting in the Central Valley and throughout the Bay Area until moving back to the East Coast in 1997. Supporting his son Mike, in his ambition to play college hockey, he sold his business in California and moved the family back to Rhode Island. As Mike pursued collegiate hockey and became the first Moffit to earn a college degree, Dennis encouraged Mike to learn the family business to always have something to fall back on.

 Our Story

Mike Moffitt

After graduating Iona College, where he played hockey, Mike worked in the financial services industry for Fleet Bank, Bank of America, and Merrill Lynch. Gradually, he realized that he wanted more, and longed to spend less time tethered to a desk and a phone. He was working nights and weekends for extra money doing small paint jobs and found himself enjoying the process and being ‘in business’.

The Start of DMP

While Dennis was working for another paint contractor and Mike was painting on nights and weekends, Mike’s wife Sarah, suggested ‘Why don’t you guys just go in together and start your own business?” The two painters looked at each other and said, “Huh, that’s a pretty good idea”. Dennis Moffit Painting (DMP) formed, and quickly grew, as the trade experience of Dennis and the entrepreneur skills of Mike complemented each other.

 Our Story

DMP Today

Dennis retired in 2010 and DMP continues to flourish. Mike and his wife, Sarah, currently own and operate the business. It continues to be a family run and family friendly business with their 3 daughters, Ava, Mia and Lila often hanging around the office after school to do their homework. Constant improvement in the experience that we deliver and the quality of our projects is what we look to hand off to the next generation.
