Amarr Garage Doors Careers and Employment

About us
This company is really into garage sales. Amarr designs, manufactures, and distributes garage doors for residential and commercial customers. Residential doors are made from steel, wood, aluminum, and wood composite; commercial doors come in aluminum, glass, or steel. Other products include garage door openers, screen doors, and vinyl garage flooring. – more... The company offers door brands such as JELD-WEN, LiftMaster, Dynasty, and Linear. Amarr has 70 distribution centers in the US, Canada, Mexico, and Hungary, and its products are sold to dealers and major retailers such as Sears, Lowe's, Sams Club, and Costco. Amarr was founded in 1951 by brothers Abe, Morris, and Herb Brenner and is owned by the Brenner family.

Amarr's sales declined during the housing downturn. However the company's performance was boosted by international sales and a drop in competition as several peer companies went out of business or were sold. Amarr was able to expand in 2011. It opened another garage door distribution center in California when it acquired a facility from Aluminum Overhead Doors Manufacturing Co.


Amarr is focused on creating and marketing new products for its customers. For example it launched a  new line of garage doors reminiscent of carriage house style doors in 2011.


The company also has a special interest in its employees and the community. It's R&D center, E3, includes a training program for employees and distributors that offers six "degree" programs (such as an Associate of Warehouse Operations or a Masters in Business Management) for those looking to move up the corporate ladder.


Amarr has three manufacturing facilities in the US and one in Mexico. Its largest, in Lawrence, Kansas, also has an on-site health clinic. The Brenner family also is known for establishing Brenner Children's Hospital in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
