OGD™ is a nationwide overhead door and dock company serving commercial and residential property owners with industry-leading garage door services. We are innovating the way the overhead door industry operates. We believe there is a better way to service our customers, a more valuable, reliable, and convenient way so we worked to reinvent the way the industry operates by developing innovative solutions for old school practices. We are proud to provide the most innovative, progressive, and reliable garage door services across the country.
As a family-owned and operated business, we rely on our service to speak for us. As such we are sure to provide our customers with the best overhead door services around through our dedication to innovation, transparency, and reliability.
OGD™ offers products and services for a multitude of projects. To ensure all needs are taken care of, OGD™ established two arms of our company — OGD™ Overhead Garage Door and OGD™ Equipment Company.
OGD™ Overhead Garage Door focuses on providing residential and commercial property owners with a variety of door services, including overhead door repair, replacement, and installation.
OGD™ Equipment Company focuses on working with general contractors, developers and architects on large and small, new construction projects.
OGD™ began in 2011 when our founder and CEO purchased a single location garage door company in Corsicana, Texas. Growing up working for his fathers’ garage door company, Bret Westbrook, OGD™ Founder, and CEO knew this would be a good fit due to his familiarity with the door industry. Once the purchase was finalized, Bret rebranded the garage door company from Corsicana Overhead Door to Overhead Garage Door, LLC.
At the start of Overhead Garage Door LLC, Bret wore many hats, including working as a technician while continuing to build and manage his team in Corsicana. Six months after opening the first of what would become many locations, Overhead Garage Door LLC opened the second location in Fort Worth, Texas, naming this the national headquarters.
Bret’s success did not go unnoticed, in 2012 Brets’ father offered to sell Athens Overhead Door in an effort to continue building onto the Overhead Garage Door LLC legacy Bret accepted the offer and acquired Athens Overhead Door in May of 2012.
During this time, OGD™ began shifting its focus to provide its customers with a full array of services to meet their commercial and residential needs. By December of 2012, the company had grown significantly and began to offer commercial new construction services through our brand known as OGD™ Equipment Company.
In 2014 OGD™ expanded its reach by opening an office in Oklahoma City. Soon after, OGD™ began expanding nationally to serve customers and clients throughout the country. Throughout these years, Overhead Garage Door LLC would take on a massive rebrand, including changing its name to OGD™. Today, OGD™ is continuing to expand its markets across the United States, reaching hypergrowth, far surpassing all expectations. OGD™ takes great pride in being more than a simple garage door company. This dedication to providing industry-leading response times and superior customer service has awarded OGD™ the success it sees today.
Corsicana Overhead Door is purchased by Bret Westbrook and Renamed Overhead Garage Door LLC.
OGD™ Opens 2nd location in Fort Worth, TX as headquarters and acquires Athens Overhead Door, unifying the name as Overhead Garage Door LLC.
OGD™ develops New Equipment Division- OGD™ Equipment Co. an overhead door and dock company serving commercial businesses.
OGD™ expands its market outside of Texas for the first time paving the way for rapid growth across the US.
The company takes on a major rebrand, purchasing ogd.com and changing its name from Overhead Garage Door LLC, to OGD™ Overhead Garage Door.
OGD™ continues to innovate its processes, expanding into new markets across the US.
“Upon entering the door and dock equipment industry, we discovered a market built on old-school practices — such as protected territories with limited product offerings and outdated customer service processes.
These practices oppressed the entrepreneurial spirit of many smaller businesses and limited the choices available to customers. We believed there was a better way to serve our customers in a more valuable, reliable, and convenient way.
OGD™ is disrupting the overhead door and dock equipment industry by developing innovative solutions to replace outdated practices. Unlike the traditional model, we have spent many years developing partnerships with top-tier manufacturers to provide our customers with the widest array of products, regardless of their location. This means our partners and customers can be sure they are receiving the most progressive and industry-leading services.
We’re obsessively passionate and invested in partnering with personnel and businesses to support and positively impact the local economies and communities we serve.”
The story of OGD™ began in Athens, Texas, where Morris Westbrook established Athens Overhead Door in the 1990s. During those early years as a newly-established business, Morris relied on the hard work and determination of a small group of employees, including his son, Bret Westbrook. While in high school, Bret spent his summers learning his fathers’ trade by installing doors for Athens Overhead Door. After working several summers as an installation technician, Bret graduated from Athens High School and enrolled at Texas Christian University, where he received a degree from the M.J. Neeley School of Business in 2007. Shortly after graduating from TCU, Bret enlisted in the United States Army where he served as an Infantry Officer and earned the rank of First Lieutenant.
Bret had a distinguished military career, including earning the coveted Army Ranger Tab and Airborne Tab before serving as a Platoon Leader in combat with the 82nd Airborne during a thirteen-month tour spanning Ramadi and Fallujah, Iraq. After loyally serving our country, Bret returned to Texas and started OGD™ in mid-2011.
