Garage Door Corporation has been advised that Raynor Garage Doors, one of the large garage door manufacturers with dealers nationwide, has discontinued the production, sale, and distribution of wood garage doors. Raynor is based in Dixon, IL and used to manufacture their own wood garage doors, steel garage doors (both residential and commercial) as well as garage door openers. A check of the Raynor website confirms that the wood garage doors have been removed from the lists. Their garage door openers are now a private label from Chamberlain for the last few years (Raynor does not make their own garage door openers). Chamberlain also produces the Liftmaster garage door opener line for professional dealers and private labels for numerous other vendors including the Sears (Craftsman) line. Amarr Garage Doors sent the memo below indicating that Raynor was out of the wood garage door business:
