Overhead Door acquires Wayne-Dalton business

Overhead Door Corporation has completed the acquisition of Wayne-Dalton’s residential and commercial door business, as well as its Fabric-Shield storm panel business, based in North America and Europe.

The company includes a Sweet Home plant located at 1400 18th Ave.

The transaction creates the largest manufacturer, marketer, and distributor of residential and commercial overhead doors and operators in the North American market, with fiscal year 2008 revenues of nearly $ 1 billion. It brings together three exceptionally strong brands: Overhead Door, Wayne-Dalton and Genie and strategically positions Overhead Door Corporation for global growth, according to a company statement.

Dallas, Texas-based Overhead Door Corporation will maintain both Overhead Door and Wayne-Dalton’s distinct brand identities, product lines and distribution channels.

Overhead Door has three divisions, including the Access Systems Division (ASD), the largest, which features the Overhead Door, Wayne-Dalton and Genie brands; Horton Automatics, which includes automatic entrance systems; and TODCO, the largest producer of truck doors for the transportation industry.
