Amarr Garage Doors

Amarr opened in 1951 as a local building supply company. After recognizing market demands, they streamlined their product lines and focused on quality garage doors. After opening manufacturing facilities across the country during the 70s and 80s, the 2000s gave rise to meteoric growth in their dealer network and strategic partnerships.  In November 2013, Amarr was acquired by ASSA ABLOY, one of the world’s leading brands in door opening solutions, to become the leading North American sectional door brand of the company Entrematic.

Amarr garage doors are made in the USA of imported and domestic components.
