National Door Industries Inc. has invested more than $4 million into its manufacturing facility to increase capacity and keep up with demand.
The Fort Worth, Texas-based company upgraded the 150,000-square-foot plant at its headquarters with five Engel injection molding machines ranging in size from 400 to 1,000 tons to handle an influx in orders that created double-digit growth during the past two years, according to a news release from Engel Machinery Inc. of York, Pa.
National Door Industries makes garage door trim and related products from vinyl, acrylic, polypropylene, polycarbonate and other materials for more than 30 garage door manufacturers. Founded in 1968 by Bob Barnard as Joba Inc., the business started with decorative window trim and then expanded into other components, such as acrylic panes that resemble beveled glass, fasteners and impact-resistant frames.
With a line of styling accents from classic to contemporary, the company changed its name to Architectural Plastics in 1974 and then to National Door Industries in 1989, which was three years after it became a subsidiary of National Door Supply Co., and the businesses merged product lines.
