Concord, Calif.

FDT, founded in 1979 and one of the nation’s largest specialty services contractors, performs commercial and industrial painting, waterproofing, roofing, infrastructure restoration and other specialty services. FDT has offices across the West Coast and provides expert service for major industrial facilities, commercial building owners, government agencies and entertainment/sports complexes.

Founded in 1884, DZ has played a historic role in painting and decorating major construction projects in the Bay Area. FDT acquired DZ in 2014. The company provides high quality services including commercial painting, wallcovering, faux finishes, waterproofing, fireproofing, high performance coatings and SoftWalls™ upholstered wall and ceiling systems.

“I am pleased to welcome the talented management team and workforce of F.D. Thomas and D. Zelinsky to the AIS family of companies,” said Greg Johnson, president and CEO of AIS. “The additions of these great companies immediately augments the capabilities of our CMR operating group, and demonstrates further progress in pursuit of our vision to build an enduring, customer-centric industrial services provider.”

AIS’s CMR operating group now totals seven companies. FDT and DZ join Petrochem, DACA Specialty Services, D2 Industrial Services, Omega and US Coatings.

“Today is an exciting day in a journey that began in 1979,” said Dan Thomas, president and founder of FDT. “I look forward to working with the leadership of AIS to pursue their vision of building a uniquely different industrial service provider; in the process providing new opportunities for the talented teams of FDT and DZ and additional services to existing and new customers.”
