HOUSTON - For over 40 years, Ryder Insulation Inc. has been a family-owned business in the heart of Houston. Since its beginning, the company held a strong reputation for safety and quality with a expertise in fireproofing, fire stopping and of course insulation.





     In September, the Ryder family joined the MAREK team, forming one big happy family. The new addition will strengthen MAREK’s portfolio of services. “It is a natural fit with our existing suite of interior services, including core and tenant drywall, acoustical ceilings, paint, specialty finishes, flooring, fabric panel shades, bundled projects and special remodel projects,” says MAREK Managing Director, Phil Nevlud.
    The two companies have worked alongside each other for almost 40 years on various high profile commercial construction projects in the Houston area. Their chemistry is a good mix and will undoubtedly prove to be a positive for the construction industry. “We are thrilled to have the Ryder team as part of our family. A great family company with a great reputation is a part of another great family company with a great reputation,” says MAREK Managing Director Saied Alavi. Who could ask for more?
    John Ryder, owner and president of Ryder Insulation, takes pride on the exceptional work Ryder Insulation has provided since his father started the business in 1963. With a strong commitment to customers and employees, along with strong experienced and field supervision hallmarking their success, he is confident his father’s legacy will continue on considering MAREK shares the same core values.
    Ryder joins MAREK as a specialty department manager. Effective Sept. 4, Ryder Insulation employees assimilate into MAREK’s. “We are excited to become a
part of the MAREK family,” adds John Ryder.
    MAREK is a specialty contractor based in Houston with operations in Atlanta, Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth, Harlingen, Nashville and San Antonio. -cmw
