The Story of R/W Specialties
R/W Specialties was founded in 1965 by Ron Pott and William (Bill) Grimm. Ron, a local Colorado lumber salesman, astutely noticed specialty building products were hard to come by in the Colorado area. Ron enlisted help from his colleague Bill to found the premier specialty building products wholesaler in the Mountain West, R/W Specialties. What started as humble beginnings with 3 product lines in a 4,500 s/f warehouse, soon grew into over 65 product lines in 4 warehouse locations with a total of more than 225,000 s/f. R/W has locations in Denver, Grand Junction, Caper, and Salt Lake City.
The strength of R/W has always been in our team. With a combined tenure of over 20 years, the R/W team drives the success of our company. Our team values our relationships with our customers and vendors above all else as they continue to be the epitome of customer service. R/W is proud to serve a special community of supportive patrons. We are forever grateful for the opportunity to supply specialty products to the Mountain West and beyond. We look forward to doing business and growing our relationship with you.
