Who we are
OGD™ is a nationwide overhead door and dock equipment company that provides a full array of products and services.
- Residential homeowners
- Business owners
- General contractors
Companies are considered to be in a hyper growth phase when the company has a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 40% and doubles their revenues in less than two years.
OGD™ began in 2011 when Bret discovered a door company for sale in Corsicana, Texas. Given his familiarity with the door business, Bret decided this was a good fit and purchased Corsicana Overhead Door in 2011, renaming it Overhead Garage Door LLC.
After six months of working as a field technician and managing the team in Corsicana, Bret made his way back to Fort Worth and opened the second location and what has now become the headquarters for OGD™. Recognizing the success his son was realizing, Bret’s father offered to sell him Athens Overhead Door, which he successfully acquired 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.
Over the next few years, OGD™ continued to expand throughout Texas. 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.
A statement from our founder
“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we discovered a market built on old-school practices — such as protected territories with limited product offerings and outdated customer service processes.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OGD™ is disrupting the overhead door and dock equipment industry by developing innovative solutions to replace outdated practices.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."

About Our Founder - Bret A. Westbrook
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 father’s 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.
He 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.
