In 1959 Fortune Magazine listed the Moen "one-handle mixing faucet," along with inventions such as Henry Ford's Model T and Benjamin Franklin's Franklin stove, as one of the top 100 best-designed mass-produced products, the result of a survey among the world's leading designers, architects and design teachers conducted by industrial designer Jay Doblin.

  • Fortune Brands Home & Security


    Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. (FBHS) is an American manufacturer of home fixtures and hardware, headquartered in Deerfield, Illinois. The company's product lines include Master Lock, Sentry Safe, MasterBrand Cabinets, Moen faucets, Therma-Tru entry door systems, and Waterloo tool storage products. The company has said that it holds market leadership positions in all of its segments, and has 16,000 associates that generated $5.0 billion in net sales in 2016. Fortune Brands Home & Security was created on October 3, 2011 from part of the former Fortune Brands holding company. The spin-off was related to the pre-announced corporate strategy of divesting unrelated product lines to focus on the liquor business. On the day after spinning off FBHS, Fortune Brands renamed itself as Beam Inc. to reflect this new strategy. Beam Inc. was subsequently purchased by Suntory to become its Beam Suntory subsidiary in April, 2014. On October 18, 2011, it was announced that Pershing Square Capital Management owned a 15% stake in the company, and considered its stock to be a very attractive investment.
