BGID was formed in 1974 as a partnership between Phil Fitzpatrick and John Foulds, formerly Garage Doors Birmingham. From humble beginnings at Selly Oak alongside the tow path and then onto Maltmill Lane, Rowley Regis, the company has grown to currently employ some 66 staff. Paul Doswell joined the Board in 1984, and as Operations Director now oversees the day to day running of the Company’s activities.
BGID moved to Unit 12 on the Griffin Industrial Estate, Rowley Regis, during 1979, where the rolling mill first started to turn out our roller shutter lath and other sections. Unit 3 on the same industrial estate was acquired later, and is used for component manufacture, as well as the Company’s well established, Rowley Range of side hinged garage doors and Electroglide range of domestic roller garage doors, Garador RollMatic, Aluroll Classic, Compact and Elite Roller Garage Doors.
Late in 2005, Unit 10 on the Griffin Industrial Estate, Rowley Regis, was purchased, and a state of the art continuous process powder coat paint plant along side a 4 stage pre-treatment plant was installed, along with the moving of our existing powder coating plant from Unit 3 to Unit 10. Thus the Company is able to fully powder coat paint finish most of its products “in-house” allowing it to better control overall product build and finish quality.
