Hörmann High Performance Doors
able to help architects, engineers and
building industry professionals make
informed design decisions. In addition
to featuring dynamic, live-response
physical characteristics of the company's high-performance door products,
Hörmann has crafted its graphics to
accommodate the user's needs in a variety of levels of detail.
"Our BIM program allows us to work
directly with architects and designers as
they insert our specific door models into
their specific projects, which ultimately
provides a reliable solution to their clients' expectations," Burnham explains.
"Hörmann is committed to its customers by being easy to do business with,
offering top-quality information that all
parties can have access to via Autodesk's
free online A360 website."
When Hörmann High Performance
Doors came to market in the United
States in 2007, it was a very small player, Burnham admits. "Since then, we
have grown and quadrupled the company through organic growth," he adds.
"It all started with the quality of the
product, standing behind it and being
aggressive and not waiting for business
to come to us."
For the past decade, the company has
been earning its business by showing
industries how it is different and better.
"It starts with quality and performance,
and being honest and transparent,"
Burnham says. "Not all our competition
is that way and they tend to expect business to just come to them, but we earn
loyalty and maintain it."
Moving forward, Hörmann High Performance Doors plans to continue driving organic growth by offering more
Hörmann products from Germany. "We
will continue to work with the synergy
between all operations in America - the
sectional, commercial, residential, high
performance and high speed - to achieve
further name recognition in North and
Central Americas." mt
