Kaloutas: The Story Behind the Name

How Kaloutas Got Our Name

No matter how you came to hear of us, from seeing one of our vans on the road or from a personal recommendation, you may wonder, "what is a Kaloutas, what is that all about?" Well, Kaloutas is actually named after its founder, Jim Kaloutas, who started the company in Peabody, MA in 1987. He and his father set out to create a company that would provide excellence in painting projects with client-focused, relationship based services, and the rest is history.


30 Years Of Excellence

In the last 30 years, the company has grown from two employees to more than 80, and from one location to five in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire. Kaloutas has weathered a lot of changes, moving from residential to industrial and commercial painting and innovating as needed to grow and profit despite dot com busts and economy slumps.


We’ve also added an industrial flooring division, offering customized commercial flooring systems for the businesses of New England. Jim Kaloutas understands the importance of innovation and has expanded the business beyond the Greater Boston market alone to “continually create opportunities for the people who work so hard for us.”


The Essential Constant in the Kaloutas Formula

Although Kaloutas has experienced impressive growth in the last three decades, one thing hasn’t changed: our focus on people and relationships. This focus shows in the value we place on our growing staff of painting contractors as well as the lengths we'll go to serve our clients.
