General Information: Fortune Brands Home & Security is the new parent company of Therma-Tru Doors and Simonton Windows. Previously,the two companies were part of Fortune Brands, but in 2011 that company was split into Beam Inc., a company focused on distilled spirits and wine, and Fortune Brands Home & Security. The new FBHS includes not only Simonton and Therma-Tru, but also Moen, Masterlock and several cabinet brands. In 2012, Therma-Tru is celebrating its 50th anniversary.The producer of fiberglass and steel residential exterior doors, as well as Fypon synthetic millwork, will also mark the 30th anniversary of the launch of its fiberglass door line this year. The door maker operates manufacturing facilities in Butler, Ind., and Matomoros, Mexico. In 2011, Therma-Tru took further steps to integrate Fypon, consolidating a Therma-Tru warehouse in Angola, Ind., as well as Fypon operations in Archbold, Ohio, into a new 350,000-square-foot facility in Howe, Ind. Fypon was acquired by Fortune Brands, along with Simonton Windows, in 2006. News from Simonton in 2011 included a move of its headquarters from Parkersburg, W.Va., to Columbus,
Ohio. The vinyl window manufacturer maintains manufacturing operations in West Virginia, as well as window plants in Illinois and California. Due to the continued economic downturn, it closed a manufacturing plant in Macalester, Okla., last year. The companies making up the new FBHS had estimated sales of about $3.2 billion total in 2010, with the window and door business reporting sales of approximately $600 million for the same year..
