The history of our company began on far off shores in the deep blue oceans of the Baltic sea. As our name suggests our roots stem from one of these Baltic states. The founder of Baltic Group, Gintautas Kerge, originated from Lithuania where he had operated a successful painting business from age 20, before coming to the Emerald Isle. He was always interested in business and began selling odds and ends from a young age, before eventually deciding to turn his passion into a career.
The company was started by our founder while he was studying management and business administration in university. To achieve this goal, he decided to follow in the footsteps of his mother who was a well regarded tradeswomen and who had a successful business in her own trade. When he arrived in Ireland he worked for a variety of well known Irish contractors where he experienced the different Irish expertise before setting up his own business in 2006.
Within a matter of months a company named ‘Baltic Decor’ was born. This company originally only operated in the painting & decorating sector of the construction industry following the trade of our founder's family. Baltic Decor represented the seedling which would eventually become the sturdy tree known as ‘Baltic Group’ today.

By 2021, we realised that we had outgrown our original service design and expanded into many new and original areas which we had never thought possible. For this reason, we decided that it was necessary to rebrand our company under one single image which unified the different services which we offer: painting, drylining and tiling.
