About Action Door

Action Door’s History

A $100 investment by a college student in Toledo, Ohio, in 1974, planted the seed from which has grown one of the most successful garage door and automatic gate system companies in the country, located right here in Southwest Florida. When George Ebel, CEO of Action Automatic Door & Gate, made that investment, little did he realize what the ultimate payoff would be. Ebel placed a $100 ad in the local newspaper offering 13 automatic door openers; they were all sold and installed. This was the beginning of a company whose business philosophy included exceptional customer service, with a sharp focus on customer needs and satisfaction. That philosophy also features direct access to all management personnel by phone or e-mail and it’s a credo that continues to this day.

In 1981, after seven years of dramatic growth in Toledo, the decision was made to add a second location. Naples, FL, was chosen as the perfect setting, since it combined a great climate with a rapidly expanding business environment. Utilizing the same business tenets that were so successful in Toledo, Action Automatic Door & Gate welcomed its first customers. With the addition of a third location in Ft. Myers in 1984, Action began serving the counties of Charlotte, Lee, and Collier on a daily basis which includes Naples, Marco Island, Goodland, Everglades City, Bonita Springs, Estero, Ft. Myers, Ft. Myers Beach, Sanibel Island, Captiva, Cape Coral, Pine Island, Lehigh Acres, Labelle, North Ft. Myers, Punta Gorda, and Port Charlotte. Its customer-friendly strategy has worked so well that Action was ranked #16 in the International Door Association’s Top 100 door dealer survey in 2004.

Whether your needs are for your home or your business, Action Automatic Door & Gate, “The Home of the Talking Door”, is prepared to provide you with quality brand name products for your specific application, and the installation and service to make it a pleasant buying experience.


Action Automatic Door & Gate

Residents of Southwest Florida know to call Action Automatic Door & Gate when they need new Overhead Doors and any equipment related to Loading Dock Systems. Established in 1974, Action Automatic Door & Gate sold automatic door openers. Still, it wouldn’t be long before its founder, George Ebel, would expand its offerings to include additional door products for homes and businesses.

The company first opened its doors in Ohio. Still, it would come to Florida in the early 1980s when the state’s economy was experiencing healthy growth for businesses in cities like Ft. Myers and Naples. The company would become well-known in communities like Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Labelle, and Lehigh Acres. Action Automatic Door & Gate would eventually become part of  DuraServ Corp, which would allow the organization to provide even more value to its clients.
