Company Background

Since its inception, Merchantville Overhead Door has enjoyed a long history dating back to 1936. In 1936, two brothers, Theodore Hermanns, a sales representative of Overhead Door Corporation and Henry Hermanns, a union iron worker from Cleveland, Ohio, decided to combine their skills and opened Merchantville Overhead Door. Throughout the last 85 plus years, Merchantville Overhead Door has remained a family-owned and operated business for 4 generations.

4 Generations

After WWII, brothers Robert Hermanns Sr. and Henry Hermanns Jr., both veterans of that war, assumed ownership and expanded the product line to include rolling steel doors and other related products. In 1988, Robert Jr. and Edward Sr. took over and now continues with the fourth generation adding Edward Jr. to the staff. To this day, at age 94, Robert Sr. still comes to work to help provide guidance and support.


An Award-Winning Company

Over the years, Merchantville Overhead Door has achieved many milestones and awards, among them more recently in 1996. Merchantville Overhead Door was the first company in the state of New Jersey to become an Accredited Door Dealer by the Institute of Door Dealer Education and Accreditation (IDEA).
