Started in 1969 in Baltimore, Maryland, Fypon produced molded urethane millwork products for the building industry in several Pennsylvania facilities. The company worked steadily for 35 years to develop molded urethane millwork products and educate the marketplace on the merits of polyurethane pieces. Through hard work and exceptional marketing efforts, Fypon built itself into the recognized brand name leader in the urethane millwork industry.
In 2004 Fypon was purchased by one of its competitors, Style Solutions. Originally started in 1974 as Style-Mark Inc. (an offshoot of Sauder Woodworking), by the Beck family of Archbold, Ohio, the company was purchased in 2000 by SBR, Inc. of Parkersburg, West Virginia. The company’s name was changed in 2001 to Style Solutions to more accurately reflect the focus of the company. In 2006 Fypon was purchased by Fortune Brands, Inc. as part of its acquisition of SBR, Inc. Fypon is now part of Fortune Brands Home & Security (NYSE: FBHS).
The acquisition of Fypon by Style Solutions in 2004 combined the operational excellence of Style Solutions with the brand name strength of Fypon. To strengthen the company’s position in the marketplace, the decision was made to keep the Fypon name for the combined companies.
“Fypon has the same name recognition in our industry as Coca Cola does in the soft drink industry or Kleenex in the tissue market," said Tom Riscili, president of Fypon at the time of the name change. “When it comes to product awareness, the Fypon name has a leading edge. Style Solutions was known for our superior customer service and operational excellence. The marriage of these two companies results in a single company that can fulfill all the moulding and millwork needs of building industry professionals, architects and consumers nationwide."
In 2009 the Fypon operations were merged into Therma-Tru Corp., another company owned by Fortune Brands Home & Security, with headquarters in Maumee, Ohio.
Today Fypon manufactures thousands of decorative and structural products for the interior and exterior of both residential and commercial applications. Interior and exterior moulded millwork product categories offered by Fypon include polyurethane entrance and window trim, mouldings and decorative millwork, balustrade systems, posts, louvers and eave vents. PVC column wraps and PVC trim boards and sheets are also available.
