This year of 2013 brought two monumental milestones for Dalton’s, King Door Company. Founded in 1963, King Door is now celebrating its 50th anniversary. The company has built its business on sales, service and installation of: residential garage doors and electric operators, commercial and industrial overhead acting doors, personnel doors, loading dock equipment and other specialty building equipment products. King Door’s customer base stretches beyond the Northwest Georgia area into SE Tennessee, NE Alabama and Western North Carolina. With 50 years worth of business in the form of products sold or service, King Door has well established its self in the market as a leader in the overhead door and loading dock equipment business.

A concentration of King Door Company’s efforts can be found in the area’s flooring industry related facilities. As many of the common house hold brand names grew, King Door was right there maintaining dock doors and loading dock equipment to get the product to the flooring retailers. The flooring industry facilities have relied heavily on the professional and safe service of King Door to keep raw goods flowing in and finished goods flowing out. These goods travel through dock doors and across loading dock levelers that require constant service and maintenance.

In the midst of celebrating King Door Company’s 50th anniversary, a merger was finalized with national door and access control leader, D.H. Pace Company, Incorporated. Headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, D.H. Pace, is one of the largest and oldest door and access control companies in the country. The Company traces its roots back to the 1920’s with the invention of the upward – acting garage door. Offices were established under the distinctive Overhead Door Corporation Red Ribbon logo in St. Louis (1926), Kansas City (1927), and Atlanta (1935). Today, there are more than 20, D.H. Pace, offices nationally.

King Door Company operates still very much as a local business. Beyond adding some new jobs, not much has really changed within the company. Located conveniently off of Walnut Avenue, King Door has a great showroom and friendly staff that invites you to stop in anytime!
