Garador renew membership with Secured by Design

Garador is one of the latest companies to renew their membership with Secured by Design (SBD), the official police security initiative.

Garador is one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of garage doors, front doors and operators, with an ultra-modern production facility located in Yeovil, Somerset.

Originally formed as part of Westland's Engineers Ltd in 1948, as part of a diversification strategy away from military products, Garador Limited was setup to manufacture one piece garage doors. Soon after Westland's Engineers Limited purchased a license from Canada to manufacture one piece Up and Over garage doors and became the only manufacturer of such doors in the UK through the 1950s. A purpose built garage door manufacturing facility was constructed in Yeovil in 1958 and the first Garador branded garage door was manufactured in Yeovil that same year.
