VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (Jan. 7, 2020) – Groundworks®, the nation’s largest foundation services company, announced today the acquisition of Foundation Repair of Western Colorado® (FRWC), expanding its ability to serve customers across Colorado.

Groundworks continues to disrupt the foundation services industry, ushering in the new year with the acquisition of FRWC. FRWC is the eighth company to be acquired by Groundworks in the past 12 months. Building on Groundworks’ success in Colorado since the acquisition of Complete Basement Systems® (CBS) in May, FRWC allows Groundworks to serve customers on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains and into Utah.

The acquisition quickly follows a recent announcement of plans to open a new CBS location in Colorado Springs, allowing the company to better serve customers in the southern portion of Colorado.

FRWC, headquartered in Grand Junction, Colorado, was founded in 2005 by Ted Munkres. Munkres, previously a land developer and home builder saw the need for foundation repair services in the area. Since its founding, FRWC has gone on to receive numerous recognitions for excellence.

“It is truly an honor to have an expert like Ted choose to join the Groundworks family. Ted has built an outstanding team of foundation services experts and we look forward to providing them with additional opportunities for growth. We are thrilled to welcome them to our growing organization.”

Matt Malone – Founder & CEO of Groundworks

Munkres stated “I chose to partner with Groundworks so that my employees here at FRWC would have access to world-class resources and opportunities that alone, I couldn’t have provided. Groundworks understands the legacies of the companies they partner with. This partnership makes the futures of my team brighter than ever.”

FRWC’s employees will now have the ability to grow professionally within Groundworks and its 14 brands. The company will continue to serve the Grand Junction community as Foundation Repair of Western Colorado®. Munkres plans to retire following the transition, but as a company founder, he will continue to share his expertise in foundation services as a consultant.
