TAMPA, Fla. — Masonite International Corporation has announced that it has completed the acquisition of A&F Wood Products, Inc., (AFWP) a wholesaler and fabricator of architectural and commercial wood doors in the Midwest United States. Founded in 1968, AFWP provides door and hardware distributors with wood doors, hollow metal doors, custom metal frames, wood frames and hardware with quick ship capabilities. The sellers will retain the use of the A&F brand for use with a separate pocket door frame business they will continue to operate.
