Hi, I’m Trent Robinson and I’ve been with UFCP since 2017. I am originally from the Hubley, Nova Scotia area and a proud graduate of Sir John A. MacDonald High School. I am currently studying Engineering at Dalhousie University right here in Halifax.

Since joining the UFCP management team I have focused on building connections and developing the skills it takes to be a successful manager. I put my greatest efforts into being reliable and producing consistently high-quality work to satisfy and exceed the customer’s expectations. Through organization and communication, I’ll ensure your project runs smoothly and efficiently and is completed in a timely fashion. When I’m not working it’s likely I can be found at the hockey rink where I’ve played many roles including; on the ice as a player or referee, behind the net as a goal judge for the Halifax Mooseheads, or just enjoying the game from the stands. I have learned the values of respect, commitment, and hard work which I use as the foundation of my business.

Hi there, my name is Thomas Martin, and I am going to be the University First Class Painting Franchise Manager for the Halifax Central area for the 2018 year.

I have painted for University First Class Painters for two summers before becoming a Franchise Manager. Since becoming a Franchise Manager in 2017, one of the qualities that I have often been complimented on by our customers is my eye for detail and to ensure that no details go overlooked. With my experience, I have the confidence and drive to ensure that my company can deliver outstanding painting services and a level of customer satisfaction that comes with treating a client’s property as if it were my own.
