Masonite International Corporation Announces Acquisition of Bridgewater Wholesalers, Inc.

November 15, 2018

TAMPA, FL (BUSINESS WIRE) – Masonite International Corporation (NYSE:DOOR) today announced that it has  completed the acquisition of the operating assets of Bridgewater Wholesalers Inc. (BWI), headquartered in  Branchburg, New Jersey. 

BWI is a leading fabricator and distributor of door systems and related components supporting customers in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern United States. Their product offerings include both residential interior and exterior doors as well as value added pre-finishing services.

BWI employs approximately 350 people across five facilities located in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Massachusetts. 

Masonite has been BWI’s primary supplier of door system components. As such, BWI would have added  approximately $55 million of incremental net sales to Masonite’s North America Residential segment for the twelve  months ended September 2018, after adjusting for intercompany transactions. The purchase price was $23 million,  net of cash acquired, and is subject to customary post-closing adjustments. 

“BWI has been an integral partner to Masonite for over three decades, providing outstanding service to their  customers,” said Tony Hair, President of Masonite’s Global Residential business. “The combination of Masonite  doors and BWI’s expertise with value added services provides continued access to the products and services that  builders and dealers know and trust. We welcome the BWI employees to the Masonite family.” 

The acquisition of these assets marks Masonite’s tenth acquisition in the last five years. Masonite’s management  team will discuss the transaction further on Masonite’s Third Quarter 2018 Corporate Earnings Conference Call.
