Brent Renfrew, President and CEO of AIS

F.D.Thomas (FDT), an ASRC Industrial (AIS) company and one of the largest industrial coating and specialty contractors in the United States, has announced the acquisition of Redwood Painting Company. Based in Pittsburg, Calif., Redwood has been involved in the application of a wide variety of protective coating systems for commercial, industrial, and residential clients for more than 75 years.

Established in 1947 by D.P. Del Monte, his one-man house painting business evolved into one of the most experienced painting and coating firms in the western United States. His philosophies of methodical, steady growth based on sound business practices and the ability to change have been carried on by his sons, Charles and George Del Monte, who currently operate the company.

“It is a privilege to welcome the talented management team of Redwood Painting to the FDT organization and broader AIS family of companies,” said Dan Thomas, President of FDT. “The addition of Redwood enhances our presence in the maintenance and wastewater markets while providing another platform to continue FDT’s growth in pursuit of AIS’s enterprise purpose.” Brent Renfrew, President and CEO of AIS, said, “We are excited to welcome Redwood to the AIS family and believe their expertise and reputation will bring valuable new opportunities for growth. We look forward to collaborating with their experienced team of professionals.”

“Quality workmanship, professional service, and customer satisfaction are the trademarks of Redwood Painting. Our continued commitment to this philosophy of doing business is what has made us successful since the days of our father,” said Charles Del Monte. George Del Monte added, “Today marks the next step for Redwood. Charles and I are excited about joining the FDT team and are committed to continuing with Redwood under new ownership. We look forward to joining forces with the FDT and AIS leadership teams to provide new opportunities for the talented team at Redwood Painting.”
