Intertech Flooring has purchased Dallas/Fort Worth-based RWA Flooring Associates, a 12-year-old family-owned business focused on commercial flooring. The acquisition expands Intertech’s presence into four markets: Austin, San Antonio, Rio Grande Valley and the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Intertech said it expects no changes in RWA management or staff, but the company will now operate under the name RWA/Intertech Flooring. RWA founder Russ White will continue as RWA/Intertech chief operating officer, based in the Grapevine office. Intertech founder Bill Imhoff will stay on as Intertech's president and CEO, based at Intertech's corporate headquarters in Austin.
“We have wanted to move into the Dallas-area market for some time, but it had to be the right fit, and we found it in Russ White and his team at RWA,” said Imhoff. “Russ has built an impressive business over the past dozen years, and our two companies share very similar cultures. The synergy was apparent from the very first conversations we had. Bringing the talent and expertise of these two organizations together will be very positive for clients and employees and will enable us to expand product and service offerings to better serve the region’s commercial construction sector.”
“We are very excited to become part of the Intertech family,” White noted. “The acquisition opens up great opportunities to grow RWA/Intertech’s maintenance services, raised access flooring and modular electrical systems and tile installations in the Dallas/Fort Worth region, areas in which the Intertech team has extensive experience. It would have been hard to put together a better fit for these two companies.”
Intertech, founded in 1988, is a leading provider of commercial flooring products and services in Central and South Texas. For more information, visit
