Moen Company History
Timeless designs. Styles unlike anything else. Faucets and fixtures that are livable and enduring. These are just some of the reasons that Moen
is one of the number one brands of faucets in North America. But, Moen does more than make faucets. It's also a major supplier of stylish kitchen sinks and innovative bath accessories.
Incorporated is a worldwide leader in providing innovative plumbing products for the kitchen and bath. Headquartered in North Olmsted, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland, the company is organized into distinct business units, allowing Moen to maintain flexibility and speed in responding to and anticipating customer demands. These units include the retail unit, wholesale unit, Creative Specialties International, commercial division, and the Cleveland Faucet Group.
Moen is part of Fortune Brands´ Home and Hardware group - a leading consumer brands company that includes leading cabinetry, door and lock manufacturers. Moen, originally part of Ravenna Metal Products of Seattle, Washington, became part of Stanadyne, Inc., in 1956 as the Company's only consumer brand. Stanadyne was acquired in 1988 by Forstmann-Little & Company. In 1989, Moen was given the status of an independent company and renamed Moen Incorporated before being purchased by MasterBrand Industries, Inc., an operating company of American Brands, in 1990. American Brands became Fortune Brands in 1997, and Moen is now part of the Fortune Brands Home and Hardware group. In the time that Moen has been part of the Fortune Brands family, it has introduced a wide range of consumer-preferred, stylish products - positioning Moen
as one of the number one plumbing brands, both in market share and in the minds of consumers.
