Masonite Mulls Acquisitions

Masonite Corporation intends to look for potential acquisitions. Robert Byrne, Chairman, Masonite, said: "To counteract this, we continue to execute on our strategy and deliver on our three pillars of EBITDA and revenue growth -- one, drive operating leverage through aggressive cost control and footprint rationalization to strengthen the core; secondly, grow organically through new product innovation, customer service excellence, and growing in new regions; and lastly, tuck-in acquisitions to aid in needed consolidation, and more recently, to enable growth in higher-margin and differentiated interior commercial and architectural wood doors."
