Today, Overhead Door Corporation has three operational divisions – Access Systems Division (Overhead Door, Wayne Dalton and TODCO plus our services arm, Creative Door and NationServe), The Genie®Company, and Horton Automatics – all heralded as industry leaders.
The Overhead Door™ brand has pioneered the industry, inventing the first upward-acting door in 1921 and the first electric opener in 1926. For over 90 years, the Overhead Door™ brand has stood for product quality, product expertise and professional service. Today, our nationwide network of over 450 Overhead Door™ distributors lead the way with innovative solutions and unmatched installation, service and support.
In 1954, a small garage door business owner invented a wooden door that folded horizontally to store itself overhead. That invention marked the birth of the company that has become known for developing and introducing innovative ideas and commitment to designing and building new upward-acting, storm protection and access systems products. Today, with its portfolio of quality, innovative products, Wayne Dalton effectively serves customer needs in North America.
Genie’s roots go back to 1926 when the Alliance Manufacturing Company was founded as a maker of toys and motorized tools. Since the introduction of the first Genie® Screw Drive garage door opener in 1954, The Genie® Company has led the industry with products known for their innovation, reliability and safety. Today, Genie® is the number one recognized brand of garage door openers.
