This company's business "hinges" on what you need opened. Overhead Door manufactures and sells wood, steel, and polyurethane garage doors, electric door operators, security grilles, and rolling doors for residential, commercial, and industrial applications. It operates through four divisions: Access Systems Division (ASD), its largest, sells garage doors and openers under the Overhead Door and Wayne-Dalton brands, while The Genie Company sells remote-control garage doors under the popular Genie brand name. Horton Automatics makes doors for commercial and industrial use; TODCO sells doors for trucks. Overhead Door was founded in 1921 and is a subsidiary of Japan-based construction products maker Sanwa Shutter.
Overhead Door sells its products mainly in North America through a network of more than 450 authorized distributors (for its Ribbon brand of products). Its primary division, ASD, operates through a network of around 20 manufacturing facilities, almost 80 regional sales centers, and more than 5,000 distributors and dealers that cater to national builders, retailers, architects, and general contractors and homeowners.
The company has a history of growing through acquisitions. In late 2011, it expanded its North American footprint through the purchase of Creative Door Services, a Western Canada-based provider of door products and related services to the residential, commercial and industrial sectors. – less
