PDS under new ownership

One of the world’s leading door manufacturers, Masonite International Corporation, has bought Performance Doorset Solutions, a UK door and window manufacturing company specialising in bespoke specification.

Masonite is a leading manufacturer of interior and exterior doors for domestic and commercial markets. It employs over seven thousand people and sells to 70 countries from over 55 locations worldwide.  Masonite’s UK division operates from its 400,000 ft2 factory and is a landmark for drivers on the M1 in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

Since 1925, Masonite’s advanced manufacturing capabilities and technology-driven sales and service solutions have created sustainable competitive advantages that provide customers with innovative quality products and exceptional service at compelling values.

“The bespoke door and window market is an exciting place to be,” says Robin Baker, General Manager for Masonite UK. “Acquiring Performance Doorset Solutions and its impressive business model places Masonite into this market and positions us for further growth.”

“Only twelve years old, PDS is a young company with noteworthy potential. It’s a significant addition to Masonite’s portfolio.”

Tim Fairley comments: “Masonite’s acquisition is an exciting new chapter. PDS customers will benefit from Masonite’s immense knowledge, resources and experience, particularly in product development and innovation.  Masonite is a company that has doors at the heart of its culture, so I am delighted that PDS is joining the Masonite family and becoming a part its future. This should be reassuring to customers and potential customers who want long term supply relationships with a progressive organisation.”

Performance Doorset Solutions retains the senior management team to ensure continued growth and delivery on its promises to both current and future customers.
