Archbold firm joins Therma-Tru parent

Fypon Ltd., Archbold, is now part of the company that owns Maumee's Therma-Tru door systems.

Fortune Brands Inc., of Deerfield, Ill., bagged the nation's top producer of urethane millwork in the recent $630 million purchase of Fypon's parent firm, SBR Inc. The biggest prize in the sale was Simonton Windows, which Fortune Brands said is the nation's third-largest producer of vinyl-framed windows.

Besides Therma-Tru, companies held by Fortune Brands include firms that make Master Lock padlocks, Jim Beam bourbon, Canadian Club whiskey, and Titleist golf accessories.
