Whiting, the original manufacturer of roll-up doors for the transportation industry, began operations in 1953. Since that time, we have concentrated on designing doors that are easy to install, operate and maintain.
In 1953, a customer pulled into the yard of a small garage door manufacturer in Akron, New York. He asked the owner, T.C. Whiting, if he and his sons could fit a garage door onto his truck body.
That simple request began what has amounted to a 100 million dollar roll-up door industry. Today, Whiting remains the leading supplier of roll-up doors in the transportation industry, and we have expanded our operations to include swing doors and a custom shop that specializes in laminated panel designs. Whiting Door Manufacturing Corp. headquarters are still located in Akron, and the company continues to be led by the Whiting family.
Since introducing the roll-up door to the trucking and transportation industry, Whiting has grown to have multiple factory locations across the United States, as well as licensee affiliates who manufacture under the Whiting nameplate around the globe. In fact, in nearly any corner of the world, it would be difficult to pass the day without spotting a Whiting door. At Whiting, we remain committed to manufacturing quality products in the United States, and continue to foster a company culture that promotes innovation, viability and integrity.
