The Detering Company, a Houston-based supplier that specializes in millwork, doors, windows and other building products, has purchased the assets of Weatherford Door & Window of Bryan,  Texas. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Weatherford’s staff and location won’t be changing, the company said.

“We are excited to add Weatherford, well-respected for its quality products and outstanding people, as a Detering compnay, and we look forward to the opportunity to better serve our Bryan and College Station customers,” said owner Carl Detering.

Detering was founded as a brick company in 1926 by Carl Detering Sr. His father, Herman Eberhardt (H.E.) Detering, came to Texas from Germany in 1871. Herman eventually opened a general store on Washington Avenue in Houston, and he and his wife, Lina, raised Carl and four other children above the shop. That general store became the headquarters of the family’s building supply company. Today, the company serves homebuilders and remodelers within a 90-mile radius of Houston.

“We are humbled to be joining the Detering Company family,” said Charles Gerke, president of Weatherford Door & Window. “Both Detering and Weatherford have a long history of delivering high-quality millwork products to the home construction and remodeling industry.”

Weatherford Door & Window is Detering’s second acquisition. In December 2014, the company bought South Texas Brick and Stone of Houston.
