ABK History

Our business was established in 1967 by Alan Bernard Kinch (ABK) – a respected local painter and decorator from High Wycombe.

In 1988 Alan Kinch relocated to Wales so his son, Roy aged 21, also a professional painter and decorator, took on the running of the family business.

ABK branched out into renovation in 1995 after many years of seeing clients being let down by their builders – the resultant issue being that decorating works were being postponed.

Today, we are very much the leaders in our field – working on a wide range of commercial and residential contracts. We are seen by many as the benchmark for quality and service and offer an enviable list of services in decoration and renovation.

Based out of High Wycombe, we are still led by Roy Kinch who heads up the decorating division and continues to grow ABK. He works alongside Brian Harris, a qualified quantity surveyor – who leads our renovation teams. Together they manage a workforce of 25+ highly trained and motivated professionals.


We were pleased with the work we had done; the decorators were well presented, pleasant and very helpful. ABK were actually recommended to us by a friend and we would be happy to recommend ABK to other friends and colleagues. On the whole we are very happy with the whole ABK experience.
