The Great Flood of 1937 Creates an Opportunity
Garnett Arnold was a consummate entrepreneur. The Great Flood of 1937 devastated local homes in the Louisville and Southern Indiana area, and the rebuilding process would require an increase in labor to perform various restorative services.
Garnett saw an opportunity to start a business helping families and businesses with their property during the rebuilding process. A company was born! Welcome Garnett Arnold & Sons.
Revolving Credit Lines Increases Purchasing Power
In 1959 credit cards with revolving credit lines were introduced in the United States. This, combined with a growing economy after WW2 had a profound effect on the economy. With an increase in residential purchasing power, Garnett’s son Raymond saw a rise in demand for residential repaints. Consumers went from needing to restore a property to having the ability to choose to repaint their homes. He capitalized on this change in consumer dynamics and decided to start another company, Raymond L. Arnold Painting Company.
In 1974, after a tour in Vietnam, Raymond’s son Michael joined the company. The business was renamed Raymond L. Arnold and Son Painting Company to reflect the addition of Michael. Together they would paint hundreds of businesses and homes over the next few decades.
It’s a Family Tradition
The tradition continued in 2001 when Michael’s son, Micah, assumed control of the company. It was converted to an LLC and subsequently renamed to Arnold Painting, LLC. In 2020, this multi-generational family business continues to provide the highest quality painting services for commercial and residential projects.
