The Overhead Door Co. of Eugene-Springfield was started in 1966 by Bob and Peggy Ashmore. Their original shop was located at the NW corner of West 11th Ave. and Conger St.
Bob and Peggy built the business to a point where, in 1974, they needed more room. A new building was erected at 4095 West 11th Ave. In 1986, the Ashmore family sold the business to Gordon McGraw. The company, at that point, had six full-time employees and was just coming out of the serious recession of the early 1980's.
As building began to increase, more installers were hired and, in 1990, Gordon purchased property of 1.4 acres with an existing building. The building was remodeled and in January, 1991, Overhead Door moved to 2080 West 7th Place. The 1990's continued with growth and yet more installers were hired and trained. This growth included an increase in security related products, such as automated gate and entry systems.
Needing even more room, an additional building was built on the 7th Place property in 1997. This building, at 2090 W 7th Place, is where Overhead Door is today. The Next Generation, Katie Schnider, Paul Burrell, Chris Schnider and Sara Burrell completed the purchase of the OHD Company in March of 2013. Continuing the values and customer service of previous owners.
