Fortune Brands (US)

Fortune Brands was spun off in 2011 from what subsequently became the premium drinks company Beam Inc. It houses a variety of home hardware, cabinetry, doors and windows businesses, accumulated over several years in the 1980s and 1990s. Fortune's single most valuable brand is Moen, North America's best-selling faucet and bathroom-fixture range, with combined sales of almost $1.4bn in 2015. It is partnered by MasterBrand Cabinets, the umbrella name for a group of kitchen and bathroom furniture businesses including Aristokraft, Omega, KitchenCraft and now Norcraft, acquired in 2015. Combined sales were almost $2.2bn in 2015. Other home hardware products include Therma-Tru doors, Simonton windows, Master Lock padlocks, Sentry safes and Waterloo Industries tool storage cabinets. After sharp declines during the late 2000s' mortgage crisis, performance has rallied strongly since the business was spun out as an independent company. Combined revenues for 2015 were $4.6bn. Chris Klein is CEO of Fortune Brands Home & Security. Adbrands does not currently offer a business profile for this company but subscribers may access account assignments and contact information.
