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.

Very fun place to work M-F 8-5 schedule weekends off
Written by General Manager (Former Employee) from El Paso, TX on March 11, 2019
Worked there 15 plus years only problem I had was that nobody from District Managers and higher would ever cover my region or my vacation time. I would always have 20 or more days of vacation time. Benefits are expensive and don't cover much. I would have retired from Amarr(Entrematic) but eventually got burned out.
Pros
Good pay, M-F schedule
Cons
Overworked, no regional support, beware of some customers they get you in trouble and management won't back you up.
