It can be said that the history of FBHS is a history of brand acquisitions.
In Fortune magazine’s recent list of the 500 largest companies in the United States, FBHS was ranked 456th, up 38 spots from the previous year. And another home furnishing giant also based in the United States, Masco, was ranked 398 this year, reflecting the industry and investment community’s assessment of the two giants. As home furnishing giants also pursuing a multi-brand strategy, FBHS and Masco are expected to remain in competition for a long time. Industry events such as mergers, acquisitions, sales, and restructuring handled by the two giants may be staged one after another.
