The Genie Company was founded in 1923 in Alliance, Ohio, and was known as the Alliance Manufacturing Company. At that time, the firm produced a broad range of products, and it was not until 1954 that it came up with Genie garage door opener. Much later – in 1984 – it went out into the market and changed its name to Genie Home Products a year later. Now it operates in the United States and Canada. It is headquartered in Alliance, Ohio, and runs its factory in Baltic in the same state.
Today, Genie produces automatic remote-controlled door opening units featuring a 140V DC motor and an access security system, which generates a new security code every time it is activated. There can be millions of code combinations. Also, systems feature an infrared sensor, which scans space in the door’s path and detects obstacles, if any.
The company’s products are very popular in North America and increasingly popular overseas.
The company takes great care about customer satisfaction level and is ready to respond to every little claim or suggestion. Genie garage door troubleshooting service is very helpful when something goes wrong with devices. Customers are free to contact the team any time, report the problem, and usually it takes but a few hours to fix it. This is exactly what makes Genie the best in the segment.
