The Carlson Group is 75 years old this year, and throughout our history we’ve worked on some interesting projects.

One of the projects we were recently reminded of took place in 1948. At the time, Ed Carlson was president of the Master Painters’ Association and led one of the most unique challenges that was ever presented to painting professionals in Manitoba – break a Canadian record for painting a home.

A total of 90 painters took part in the challenge and, in just 14:03, completed a two-storey paint job, setting a Canadian standard.

The event was sponsored by Beautify Winnipeg and the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce.

This is just one of the many colourful events The Carlson Group has taken part in over the years. Stay tuned for more stories from our proud history in Winnipeg.
