News – Welcome On Board



The John Boyle Decorating Centers is pleased to announce the addition of Jeff Hettrick to our company.

Jeff comes to us with 15 years of experience in paint sales, and a lifetime of painting as he grew up in Berlin, CT the son of a professional painter. He has extensive training in the specification of specialty coatings for manufacturing plants, hospitals and municipalities, but is equally qualified helping homeowners determine the right paint for their house. His unique background makes him a valuable resource to both professionals and homeowners alike looking for advice on choosing paint and application tips.

Jeff wants to thank all the customers and employees of the John Boyle Company for welcoming him so quickly and making him feel at home.

You can usually find Jeff in our Southington store, but with his knowledge, don’t be surprised to see him spend time in any or all of our seven locations in central CT. If you would like to contact Jeff directly, please call him (860) 549-2124.
