Brant Overhead Door is a division of Knechtel Bros (2012) LTD, founded in 1949 by the Knechtel family. We started manufacturing wood products of all types: skids, park benches and eventually wooden garage doors, which took off with a boom.

Brant Overhead Door Founded in 1952

In 1952, the family started a garage door service and installation division for these wooden doors and called it Brant Overhead Door. Knechtel Bros’ wooden garage doors were known for top quality and durability. As demand for high quality steel doors increased, Brant Overhead Door became distributors for most of the steel garage door manufacturers such as Steel-Craft, Clopay®, Wayne Dalton®, and in 2007, C.H.I.™ Overhead Doors.

In 2009, manufacturing of wooden doors was discontinued due to lack of demand. Two years later, the Enes family bought the company. Beatrice Enes had been bookkeeper for Knechtel Bros since 2005. To this day, business continues as usual with the same experienced employees and spectacular customer service.
