We are a family run small business established by Robert “Mitch” Tibbitts in 1981. Mitch began with automatic door repair out of a shop in his home in the Ojai Valley. The business has since grown and now includes installation of commercial automatic and manual doors, hardware and storefront glazing. Mitch has since retired and the corporation he started is now run by his daughter Jessica as CFO and our estimator Mike as CEO. We make sure our customers are provided with the best client experience possible. The business operates on a basic principle: Hard work, honesty and quality service create loyal customers.
