Dorset Garage Doors was founded in 1991 by Peter and Pat Bovenizer. Peter having completed a full career in the Royal Signals, then worked as a Project Manager in the Computer Business, decided to use his mechanical and electronic engineering skills in a new field, and chose the garage door business. From moderate beginnings, business improved and in 2003 his son-in-law, Joe Shimmin joined the firm. Joe’s background is as a fully qualified motor mechanic, skills which are eminently suitable for working with garage doors and electric operators.
A decision was taken, in our early years of trading that to be specialists in our field we had to concentrate solely on the garage door and automation industry. Therefore garage doors and electric operators are our sole business.
