TAMPA, Fla. - Masonite International Corp. has announced it has completed the acquisition of A&F Wood Products (AFWP), a wholesaler and fabricator of architectural and commercial wood doors in the Midwest United States. Founded in 1968, AFWP excels in providing door and hardware distributors with wood doors, hollow metal doors, custom metal frames, wood frames and hardware with quick ship capabilities. The sellers will retain the use of the A&F brand for use with a separate pocket door frame business they will continue to operate.
“AFWP’s ability to provide quick ship custom machined and finished wood doors, hollow metal doors and related products to door and hardware distributors is a natural complement to Masonite Architectural’s manufacturing business,” said Graham Thayer, senior vice president and business leader of Masonite Architectural. “This transaction demonstrates our commitment to improving responsiveness to our customers with short lead times, additional products and value-added services. We are excited to welcome the AFWP team to the Masonite Architectural family.”
AFWP employs approximately 50 people at a single site in Howell, Michigan. Net sales from May 2016 until May 2017 were around $14 million. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
