Bill Kushlick, a former GE, Stanley and Weiser executive, has joined forces with Dusco Doors Ltd. as president, business development for its new Stanley Doors initiative. Kushlick, most recently the president and chief operating officer of Taiga Building Products, will be responsible for new business development and a drive to increase brand awareness of the new line of Stanley Doors products throughout North America.

“During his tenure as president at Weiser, now owned by Stanley Black & Decker Inc., Bill Kushlick and his team built one of the top brands in the Canadian Hardlines industry,” says Harvey Dubrofsky, chief executive officer of Dusco Doors Ltd. “We are fortunate to have an executive of Bill’s experience to help lead the effort to reintroduce Stanley Doors to the market.”

Stanley recently granted Dusco Doors Ltd. of Montreal the exclusive license to manufacture and market Stanley Doors in North America.

The new product line will be sold as Stanley Doors and will include insulating entry door systems in fiberglass and steel, patio doors, decorative glass and associated components. The new program is targeted to launch in the fall of 2010 at home improvement centers, mass merchandisers, wholesale chains and industrial distributors in both Canada and the United States.

  1. I had the great pleasure to work for Bill Kushlick when he served as the Canadian CEO for Weiser. His leadership style was both trusting and supportive. Weiser profited from his vision and drive to grow the Canadian business. He made many friends, being a very caring leader, and practised an “open door” policy.
    With his industry background and experience, Bill will win.
    Sincerely,

  2. I own a small electronic security company and have some marketing ideas that would blow the roof off of the security industries. There are so many problems with general contractors and security vendors with doors and electronic locks that if a door company can handle them they would lead the market in door sales for all contractors. Please feel free to contact me via email. I will be sharing this with other door vendors to see who will respond
