Nearly A Century of Garage-Door Innovations
In 1924 our great-grandfather purchased the very first franchise from the inventor of the overhead garage door. Our firm was known as the Overhead Door Company of Hillside. Our unique handmade hardware and original manufacturing methods gave American homes and commercial enterprises a facelift. For several decades almost every non-swing garage door installed in the Northeast was one of ours.
From our original Hillside New Jersey factory, we moved to modern facilities in Whitehouse Station, NJ in 1969. Today, Fimbel Architectural Door Specialties (Fimbel ADS) has a state-of-the art, solar powered manufacturing plant and headquarters just across the road from our 1969 facility. We also have additional manufacturing facilities in Pennsylvania for over 150,000 square feet of manufacturing capability.
In 2004, Edward Fimbel III foresaw the increase in popularity of carriage doors and founded Fimbel Architectural Door Specialties manufacturing carriage style doors from various composite materials and continuing the commercial product line on a smaller level. There are now many collections of beautiful, virtually maintenance free, and sustainable garage doors, and the new series’ that lie ahead are sure to impress the market.
After decades of devotion to the door business, Ed Fimbel III has begun the approach to retirement! He will stay on as CEO and innovator for new product lines, but his focus will be on establishing the retirement lifestyle.
Fimbel Architectural doors are modern, innovation marvels — we use advanced materials and patented precision manufacturing methods as well as designs based on original period drawings to deliver the most well-made, durable, and beautiful doors on the market today. Your door will feature one or more of our technology patents.
Our wide range of styles and price points, means that there is a Fimbel door available for any home or business at almost any budget. That’s why our doors can be found on homes and businesses across the country. Our ability to design and engineer custom applications makes us a favorite among architects and design-build firms. We make the Fimbel ADS's engineering department available to provide assistance to architects and engineers seeking to solve a tough design and engineering challenge or simply needing to design a completely unique door from advanced materials.
