At Masonite, we understand that people are key.  We are a composite of diverse people who come together by showing support and respect to one another.


We hire people that demonstrate integrity under pressure. Integrity is at the foundation of everything we do.  It is in each door we make, in our commitment delivery and in our honest and sincere communication.


Our employees are flexible, versatile and resilient. Our ability to weather any storm, to bend without breaking, is what allows us to hear the knock and open the door with confidence, no matter what’s on the other side.



At Masonite, we hold the door open for each other and for new ideas. We want everyone to freely contribute ideas and add value, so we are positive and encouraging.  This collaborative environment is what makes Masonite a transparent, fair company- one that doesn’t hide behind closed doors.
