ATI Restoration, LLC (“ATI” or “Company”), America’s largest family-operated restoration contractor and a national leader in restoration, environmental remediation, and reconstruction services, announced today it has acquired Roth Construction. ATI was advised by Ryan Maughn, Davis Wright Tremaine LLP and Varoon Parekh, RSM. Roth Construction was advised by Gokul Padmanabhan, Restoration Brokers of America. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Bob Rothacker, better known as Cleveland’s “Grandfather of Restoration,” founded Roth Construction in 1967 and has proudly served Northern Ohio for over 50 years. Despite garnering numerous awards, including Contractor Connection’s coveted Golden Hammer, and Better Business Bureau’s A+ rating, Bob still considers the biggest award a happy customer.
Bob’s daughter and proud second-generation restorer, Lisa Rothacker, leads the company as president today. Roth’s team of 58 IICRC certified specialists pride themselves on providing the finest water and sewage restoration, fire and smoke remediation, commercial restoration and construction, and contents cleaning to homeowners, businesses, restaurants, and schools.
“Roth Construction is a second-generation family company, just like ATI, and we’re honored to welcome Bob, Lisa and everyone at Roth into the ATI family,” said ATI President Jeff Moore.
“Roth Construction belongs to all our employees,” said Bob Rothacker. “And I can’t think of a better steward for our company than ATI and the Moore family. We’re in good hands.”
Restoration Brokers of America has transacted mergers and acquisitions throughout the restoration
industry, matching business models and buyers for continued success. “We have a long-standing respect
for the ATI model of business. Our rich working relationship in this industry allows us to bring quality
restoration businesses, like Roth Construction and ATI Restoration, together to solidify the strength of
the industry,” said Gokul Padmanabhan, President & CEO of Restoration Brokers of America.
“I am thrilled to officially welcome the Roth and Cleveland communities to the ATI family,” said Jeff
Moore. “Working with a multigenerational family business is always a special experience, and it has
been an absolute joy and pleasure to collaborate with Gokul during the sales process. We are excited to
continue providing exceptional restoration services to our new customers with the same level of
enthusiasm and gratitude that we have always shown.”

Together with the Company’s existing offices in Illinois and Kentucky, it will enable ATI to continue gaining market share and better serve its national accounts in the Midwest and Great Lakes region.
