Our history.

Your go-to painter since 2006.

  • Crash of Rhinos was founded in 2006.
  • Company bought by Mike & Kim in 2008.
  • We’ve grown every year since!
  • We’re excited for our future.
This is our original trailer from back when Crash of Rhinos was first started with just a single painting crew.

Crash of Rhinos Painting was originally founded in 2006 by Todd Ellingson and was bought by Mike and Kim Ricker in 2008. During a major housing slump, Crash of Rhinos Painting maintained steady growth, while many other paint companies in Arizona went out of business.

Since originally starting with only three staff members, our business has now grown to five full-time painting crews, as well as an office staff. We can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us!
