Since its inception Merchantville Overhead Door Company has enjoyed a long history dating back to 1936. In 1936 two brothers, Theodore Hermanns, a sales representative of Overhead Door Corporation and Henry Hermanns, a union iron worker from Cleveland Ohio, decided to combine their skills and opened Merchantville Overhead Door Company. Throughout the last 85 plus years Merchantville Overhead Door has remained a family owned and operated business for 4 generations. After WWII brothers Robert Hermanns Sr. and Henry Hermanns Jr. both veterans of that war, assumed ownership and expanded the product line to include rolling steel doors and other related products. In 1988 Robert Jr. and Edward Sr. took over and now continues with the fourth generation adding Edward Jr. to the staff. To this day at age 94, Robert Sr. still comes to work to help provide guidance and support.
