RKL is now a division of Mitek-Hohmann & Barnard

As of Monday, August 5th, 2013, RKL Building Specialties has become a part of the Berkshire-Hathaway conglomerate, under the parent companies of Mitek Industries and Hohmann & Barnard. This merger of longstanding family-run businesses is a perfect match as together there are many synergies, including 150 years of growth, expertise, innovation, and understanding of the masonry industry. RKL has moved from its home of sixty years in Astoria to its newly renovated and state of the art facility in College Point, NY. Only minutes from our former location, our College Point office has so much more to offer, including ample warehouse storage space to house an even greater inventory, our in-house steel fabrication shop which will continue to manufacture your custom stone anchors and much more, and beautiful offices and conference facilities to better service our customers' most demanding needs. We will not be wavering from our tradition of offering our customers top notch customer service and quality products-this will never falter. Built upon the concept of listening to our customers' needs and being driven by not power but by satisfaction of our product, RKL's goals remain the same, and they are to welcome you into our company's home with open arms and to do what we can to help. RKL is still the same, just even better equipped to service your business needs. Please come and visit us at our new home: 15-30 131st Street, College Point, NY 11356. Telephone: 718-728-7788 and Fax: 718-726-6836. For additional information, please see below press release. Thank you and we look forward to working with you on your current and upcoming projects!
