Forest Garage Door

Quality Garage Doors

Since 1946

In 1946 Forest established and opened their doors. William Forest began his business in his garage, selling hardware for one-piece garage doors. A year later he was joined by his son, William Forest, Jr., who has returned from his service in the Army. It was under this father and son team that Forest opened the doors of its present location.

In 1953, William Sr.’s son-in-law, William Kneller, came on board. At one time or another all three of his sons helped out in the office or warehouse. His son, John Kneller, began working at Forest full-time in 1975. In 1983 a fire destroyed the warehouse and showroom at which point John took control of the business and decided to rebuild at the same location.

John’s father, Bill, continued to come into the office until just before his passing in 2004. John is still the owner of Forest Door — and his three children have also worked at Forest in one capacity or another over the years. Today John is joined by his daughter Jill who operates the business. John and Jill, with a handful of excellent (many long term) employees, carry on Forest Door’s reputation for quality and excellent customer service.
