Blenheim painter Derek Borland has sold his business of 30 years, Borland Painting, to his longtime employee Steve Roberts.

Mr Roberts worked for Mr Borland for 16 years, first as foreman and supervisor, and as operations manager for the past three years.

He took over the business in December and plans to rename it Premier Painting, although it will continue trading under the Borland Painting banner for the next 12 to 18 months.

A former social worker, Mr Borland plans to return to the industry and is part of the way through an online three-year bachelor's degree in counselling, through the Bethlehem Tertiary Institute
