On Tuesday, Tecta America, the nation’s largest commercial roofing firm, announced that it had acquired Eberhard Companies based in Van Nuys, Calif., and Las Vegas.

In a Jan. 23 news release, Tecta said that Eberhard has served the greater Los Angeles and Las Vegas markets since 1945 and is one of “…the most recognized commercial roofing providers in the Los Angeles and Las Vegas markets and has performed some of the most iconic roofing work over the last 80 years.”

Eberhard is a commercial contractor focusing on new construction, re-roofing, and service & maintenance services for property owners, general contractors, as well as local, state, and federal government customers. Tecta said Eberhard's focus on safety and caring for its people and customers has been the keys to its success and growth.

"We are thrilled to welcome Eberhard to our family of companies,” Dave Reginelli, Tecta's president and CEO, said. “For the last 40 years, Brian Mowatt and Dave Stefko have led Eberhard to become one of the most well-known and respected contractors on the West Coast; we have been extremely impressed by the entire Eberhard organization from field to senior leadership.”

Tecta said that Mowatt, Stefko and Paul McKellar will continue in their current roles alongside other key members of management. The operation will be known as Eberhard, a Tecta America Company, LLC, in the southern California market, and Eberhard Southwest, a Tecta America Company, LLC, in the southern Nevada market.

"We have known Tecta since it was established in the 2000s and have always thought that one day Eberhard might join Tecta,” Mowatt said. “For [us], it was of the highest importance to partner with an established company that would ensure the long-term future of Eberhard and its 270+ employees.”

Stefko added, "Throughout our history, we have consistently grown our business, and we want to continue to do so for the foreseeable future; we feel our partnership with Tecta will help us achieve our goals and continue the Eberhard legacy for many years to come."

Tecta America Corporation has grown to encompass more than 95 locations nationwide and is the largest roofing contractor in the United States. Tecta is an approved applicator by all major manufacturers.

“We look forward to working with Brian, Dave, and the rest of the team as they continue to provide outstanding service to their loyal customer base," Reginelli added.
