History

1999–present

In 1999, Masco Corp acquired Arrow Fastener Co., Inc., a hand tool company expanding its business in the hardware category.

In 2000, Heartland Industrial Partners, a private equity firm, purchased Masco Tech and changed its name to Metaldyne. Metaldyne is headquartered in Plymouth, Michigan. Masco also divested Flint & Walling, Inc this year to Zoeller Company.

In 2001, Masco Corp., or simply Masco, entered the windows business and had operating profits beyond a billion dollars. Late in the year, Masco announced it would write down the value of its stake in LifeStyle Furnishings International by $460 million, since its equity share was only 15 percent, with the rest being debt. LifeStyle, the third largest furniture maker in the United States with $2 billion in sales, had sold Universal Furniture to Lacquer Craft. Then Masco announced Furniture Brands International would buy Drexel Heritage, Henredon and Maitland-Smith for $275 million, with management of Berkline, BenchCraft and Sunbury taking over those companies. LifeStyle continued to own Lexington, Robert Allen/Ametex and the Beacon Hill showrooms.

In 2003, Masco's annual sales topped ten billion dollars and Masco increased its quarterly dividend for the 47th consecutive year. This ranked them in the top ten publicly owned companies achieving increased annual consecutive dividends.

Throughout his time with the company, Richard Manoogian has achieved a net worth of approximately $750 million. He has been ranked as high as number five on the Forbes 400 list of richest manufacturers. The Manoogian family is no longer involved in the management of the company.

In 2015, the company announced it would relocate its headquarters from its facility in Taylor, Michigan to Livonia due to downsizing after spinning-off some divisions. Company president Keith Allman opened the new site on July 31, 2017.

In December 2017, Masco acquired Mercury Plastics of Middlefield, Ohio for an undisclosed amount and in January 2018, it acquired Kichler Lighting of Independence, Ohio for $550 million.
