Incorporated in 1912, Richards-Wilcox was the first company in Canada to introduce sectional overhead garage doors and establish nationwide distribution channels. In the 1970s, RW launched a full line of steel sectional doors. In the 1980s, we began production of a continuous polyurethane insulated section – one of only three lines of its kind in North America.

The subsequent decades have brought continual improvements to our product offerings and manufacturing processes, including the addition of a full range of residential polyurethane insulated sectional doors. Celebrating our first centenary, RW is proud of our rich history of excellence. We are committed to be innovators of sectional door design and purpose to be the highest quality door systems manufacturer in the world.

Quality Production


Every aspect of our manufacturing operation is subject to the highest standards. Our team of engineers is dedicated to researching state-of-the-art design and production methods. An in-house testing facility and uncompromising quality control inspections make certain that only premium products leave the premises. Using the best available materials and technology guarantees that the finished door system will be reliable, strong, and worry-free for years to come.

Uniform insulation ensures excellent adhesion to the sheet with an exceptional strength to weight ratio that qualifies for a wide range of applications.
