Third generation President, Rick Holtz, celebrates 20 years with the company that his grandfather founded in 1936.

Richmond, VA: Rick Holtz, President of H.J. Holtz & Son, Inc. Painting, Wallpapering and Specialty Finishes, recently celebrated 20 years with the company that his grandfather founded. “Working in the family business has been very rewarding. I started out on jobs, then managing the crews, then developing relationships with our clients and partners,” he said.

During his tenure, Rick has guided the business through some dramatic changes. For one, the company moved from his Grandfather’s shop into a commercial space, then into a building of its own. “That building we bought, which we still occupy today, had a large spray room, giving us the ability to expand our services to include furniture painting,” Rick commented. In recent years the use of that room has increased, necessitating the purchase of a second spray booth due to arrive this summer.

As new techniques and technologies have become available, the company has not just kept up, but has become the go-to painting contractor in Richmond for unique and challenging projects. “Bringing extremely talented people into the business – and into the family so to speak – has allowed us to add capabilities like specialty finishes while continuing to delight our clients.”

In the coming year, H.J. Holtz & Son, Inc. will be celebrating another milestone – 80 years in business.
