The Western Overhead Door Story
Western Overhead Door Co began operations here in
Hawaii in 1970. Founded by a large lumber dealer from Portland who
sold it to Ernie Carlbom in 1980. They
have installed over 30,000 garage doors and thousands of commercial
roll-up doors and grilles here in Hawaii.
In the late 80's they were designated a Banner distributor
for the Overhead Door Corp. Being named a Banner distributor
for this pioneer overhead door manufacturer is seen as a major milestone
for this local family owned business.
Many advantages were made available as a 'Banner' distributor:
Overhead Door Corp., established in 1921, is a pioneer and leader
in the industry. It provides a full line of quality residential and
commercial overhead door products and automatic openers.
As a 'Banner' distributor we are able to get all the overhead door products from one
manufacturer we are able to consolidate orders and ship via our own
containers. This cuts down shipping cost and damage in shipping. This
is a very important advantage for any company here in Hawaii.
Because Overhead Door Corp. is one of the largest and most experienced
manufacturers in the industry, they are able to provide valuable product,
technical and marketing support to their distributors. This helps
keep us up to date on all the new technology and product advancements.
