Masonite is a well-respected name in both the construction and interior design industries. This good reputation comes as no surprise, considering the high levels of research, design innovation and attention to detail that is routinely applied in the development of Masonite products.
The company originated back in 1924, when William H Mason, an American engineer and inventor, made a revolutionary discovery, which manifested in becoming the first wood by-product. This innovative new creation was made from surplus wood chippings, which were then pressed and heated to form an affordable, yet durable wood product later known as Masonite; a product that is still widely used within construction and joinery end uses today.
Through its tireless commitment to creating superbly crafted joinery products, Masonite has further expanded into new and developing markets and is deservedly the undisputed industry leader in interior door manufacturing.
The Masonite headquarters are based in Tampa, Florida, and the company now employs over 7,000 people positioned at over 70 locations spanning four continents. Each and every employee is dedicated to the core principles of the Masonite Corporation, which include:
