SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Throughout the latter half of 2019 and into 2020, roofing contractor Restoration Builders saw rapid expansion throughout the U.S. with the acquisition of multiple roofing companies.
Restoration Builders announced its most recent acquisition today with the addition of AVCO Roofing Inc. in Tyler, Texas. Heath Hicks, owner of AVCO Roofing, purchased the business shortly after its founder passed away in 2014. Since then, AVCO has grown to six locations and more than 40 team members in the office and 70 in the field.
“I am very proud to announce the acquisition of AVCO Roofing,” said John Lorenz, chairman and CEO of Restoration Builders Inc. “This is an award-winning group with deep connections within their community. Heath is a well-respected industry speaker and business mentor who has established a culture of teamwork, family and fun. Their strong convictions perfectly align with our core values, some of which include customers first, relationships matter and a demand for excellence. I look forward to building our successful future together.”
Restoration Builders was founded in 2017 to consolidate existing companies and build a network of contractors and other companies. Once a network has been fully established, it plans on having a global infrastructure.
