Masco Buys Construction Companies

August 8, 2007

Masco Corp. acquired Erickson Construction Co. and Guy Evans Inc. Erickson provides prefabricated wall panels and millwork. Masco said the Erickson acquisition will allow it to manage the entire framing process for the builder. Guy Evans installs millwork, doors, windows and bath hardware for residential builders and commercial contractors

Both companies will join Masco Services Group, a provider of installed products for North American homebuilders. Guy Evans will become part of group subsidiary, Masco Contractor Services, which distributes and installs 20 different product categories to homebuilders across the country.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but a Masco press release says the company expected combined annual sales of $200 million this year.
