We always associate the red ribbon with our brand, otherwise known as Overhead Door. We tell customers and consumers to “look for the red ribbon”. But what does the red ribbon mean or stand for? We think it’s significant and worth sharing with you.
Overhead Door Corporation’s founder, C. G. Johnson, invented the upward-lifting garage door in 1921 and the electric garage door opener in 1926. Johnson traveled across the United States with a small prototype of the door mounted on the back of his Model T, promoting his new innovation at county fairs and in countless small towns. He was ahead of his time by using marketing and sales tactics such as customer coupons and sales outlet bulletins to communicate the news about this innovative product and create a call-to-action for consumers. For over 90 years, the Overhead Door brand has stood for product quality and expertise, as well as professional service.
Today, Overhead Door is one of the most recognized and respected brands in the garage door industry.
