Genie is famous as a garage door opener and has provided years of safety and security to many homeowners. Founded in 1923 as the Alliance Manufacturing Company, they produced a variety of consumer, industrial, and military products. In 1954, the company first started producing a garage door opener and called it Genie. It was a radio-controlled residential garage door opener and soon became a leader in design, safety, and service for garage door openers.
In 1994, Overhead Door Corp. purchased the company that had become the symbol of trust and reliability the world around in home centers, hardware stores, and professional installation dealers.
