Tampa door manufacturer Masonite going public


Door manufacturer going public Monday

Tampa's about to get a new publicly traded company.

Well-known doormaker Masonite International Corp. is going public and its shares will trade Monday under the trading symbol DOOR on the New York Stock Exchange.

The 88-year-old company, with headquarters at One Tampa City Center, was once public but was taken private in 2005. It filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2009 in order to reorganize its finances before emerging from bankruptcy protection later that year.

"We are excited about this important step in Masonite's evolution and remain focused on executing against a balanced set of business strategies to drive sustainable top and bottom line growth," chief executive officer Fred Lynch said in a statement.
