Celebrating 47 years in the family business!
1975 was the year Graham Charles Humphris started Coventry Garage Doors. Previously he had been operating a delivery service, delivering garage doors all over Britain.
He decided to have a go at selling and installing them. Working from a home office and a van for several years, he started repairing, servicing, modifying to automatic, and fitting all kinds of garage doors and carports. This was with the help of his wife Rachel taking phone calls and making appointments. He managed all of the bookkeeping himself for many years.
In the early 80’s the business grew with additional staff and he was accompanied by his daughter Cilla and son Martin. The home office and store was outgrown, premises were obtained in Mercer Avenue and this is where the company operated from for over 20 years before moving to a larger facility.
