The Detering Company acquires Weatherford Door and Window Company
HOUSTON — The Detering Company, a building materials company specializing in millwork, doors, windows, cabinets, brick & stone has acquired the assets of Weatherford Door & Window Co., a Bryan, Texas-based dealer of doors, windows, and hardware for customers in Central Texas. While Weatherford will become a Detering Company, the staff and location will remain the same. Established in 1926, The Detering Company has been in the Houston building market for more than 90 years. With this acquisition Detering will have the ability to both distribute and manufacture directly from Central Texas.
“We are excited to add Weatherford, well respected for its quality products and outstanding people, as a Detering Company, and we look forward to the opportunity to better serve our Bryan and College Station customers,” said owner Carl Detering. While Detering has serviced Bryan and College Station and Central Texas, this acquisition will allow a greater capability for distribution throughout the area.
Charles Gerke, President of Weatherford Door and Windows added, “We are humbled to be joining the Detering Company family. Both Detering and Weatherford have a long history of delivering high quality millwork products to the home construction and remodeling industry. Being a Detering company will allow Weatherford to expand its product line as well as increase production capacity to better service the greater Brazos Valley market. Together with Detering, we are now in an even better position to fulfill our promise to provide the highest quality products and services to our customers.”
Weatherford Door & Window is the second addition to the Detering group of companies, the first being the acquisition of South Texas Brick and Stone, a brick and stone distributor in Houston in December of 2014.
The Detering Company is a third-generation family-owned company located in Houston. Founded in 1926 by Carl Detering, Sr., it is currently owned by Carl Detering, Jr. along with his son and daughter, Carlos and Cassie, respectively. Detering specializes in interior millwork, doors, windows, cabinets, brick and stone for custom homebuilders and remodelers in a 90- mile radius of downtown Houston.
