GARADOR The Garage Door People The Company Garador is the UK’s leading up and over garage door manufacturer. The Company heads the field with its outstanding range of doors. They can boast quality second to none and are continually improving their products. Based in Yeovil, Somerset, the Bunford Lane plant is modern purpose built unit using the latest technology to produce to the very highest quality levels. The History The company has not always been a producer of garage doors but has always been involved in engineering. Established in the early 1900’s the company first came to prominence as aeronautical engineers under the title of Westland. During the First World War they were responsible for the manufacture of many of the fighter aircraft used by the Allies. The development of the company into major aeronautical engineers continued between the wars. At the onset of the Second World War in 1939 Westland became a major aircraft manufacturer and it alone produced many of the Spitfire aircraft and other designs of fighter aeroplanes. Westland Engineers were formed in 1948 and early in the 1950’s bought a licence from a Canadian company to produce the first UK up & over garage doors. In the late 1950’s the first garage doors were produced. Such was the quality of these doors that even today our engineers can be called upon to carry out maintenance on these early garage doors with the Westland Engineers badge. During the 1980’s and 90’s the Company saw several changes of ownership. In 2000 Hormann KG, a German company, and at that time the largest manufacturer of garage doors in the world, bought Garador. There followed large investment in the manufacturing plant and infrastructure. This has led to Garador becoming probably the leading manufacturer of garage doors in the UK. The Range Up & Over The main product is still the Up & Over garage door. There are over fifty different models produced in steel, GRP, and timber. The doors can be specified in a variety of colours and finishes and are available with two different lifting gear options.
