A History of Hörmann Garage Doors
Below we have a look at their history and discover why they have become one of the most recognisable garage door manufacturers in the world.
Hörmann started in humble beginnings
Re-establishment and a new impetus
Not one to rest on their laurels, Hörmann decided to mass produce a sectional garage door system in the mid 1960’. This had further success for the company and gave the consumer much more choice. The sectional door offered a little more space usage within the garage and afforded different designs much to the delight of the shopper.
Global brand and development
In the last 50 years, the company’s growth has gone from strength to strength, so much so that they now have an extensive range of garage door products, including a specialist RollMatic range of roller doors and they have even branched out into entrance doors for the higher end market too.
They now also offer commercial door products including fire protection doors and high performance doors, as well as taking advantage of technological advancement to create their own opening mechanisms and controls.
In 2002 Hörmann began targeting the United States market and now has distribution centres across America. These centres serve both the domestic and commercial sectors, with the Americans taking advantage of their high performance doors.
