Edelson & Associates, LLC is investigating whether Masonite Corporation and Jeld-Wen, Inc. conspired to fix the prices for interior molded doors from at least October 24, 2012 through the present. Interior molded doors are a type of interior door made by sandwiching a wood frame and a hollow or solid core between two doorskins composed of a high density fibrous mat and formed into a raised panel design. The interior molded door is the most popular type of interior door in North America.
Between 2001 and 2012, Jeld-Wen, Inc. and Masonite Corporation began to eliminate competition by acquiring a number of smaller interior door manufacturers. Additionally, each of the companies sought to eliminate competition by stopping their long standing practice of supplying doorskins to smaller interior door manufacturers.
The above actions have enabled each company to announce uniform price increases without any competitive constraints. These price increases cannot rationally be explained by normal market forces, such as key input costs, and supply and demand factors.
If you purchased interior molded doors directly from either company in any state or indirectly (i.e., from a distributor or retailer) in the following states, AZ, CA, DC, HI, IL, IA, KS, ME, MI, MN, MS, NE, NV, NH, NM, NY, NC, ND, OR, RI, SD, TN, UT, VT, WV or WI you may entitled to damages as a result of an over payment.
