Huttig Building Products Inc. reports it has entered into two new strategic supply agreements with Therma-Tru Doors and Masonite.

Under the multi-year agreement with Therma-Tru, Huttig will exclusively pre-hang and distribute the manufacturer’s exterior steel and fiberglass door products across the majority of Huttig’s trading areas in the states of  Washington, Alaska, Hawaii, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Missouri, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island,
Delaware, and Maine. The agreement runs through March 2016.

In addition, Huttig and Masonite have entered into a supply agreement whereby Huttig will exclusively pre-hang and distribute Masonite’s exterior steel and fiberglass door products in the state of California. Huttig has a long established relationship with Masonite and currently exclusively pre-hangs and distributes Masonite’s interior flush and molded doors across all of its locations.

“Huttig is proud to be recognized as the largest wholesale distributor and producer of pre-hung exterior and interior doors to the pro-channel in the U.S.,” says Jon Vrabely, Huttig president and CEO. “Our broad geographic footprint, service proposition and commitment to representing the best brands in the industry are the keystones of our value proposition. The greatest challenge for any business isn’t in planning for the next few months, but for the next five years.”

Re-solidifying its long-standing partnerships with Therma-Tru and Masonite provides Huttig with strength and stability in a product category that represents a significant amount of the company’s revenues, Vrabely continues. "We’re proud of the brands we carry, the services we offer
and the performance of our employees. It’s because of all these elements that we can look forward to continued growth in 2013 and beyond.”
