“In 1960, Ken started his career in the door and gate industry as a helper for his father who was a manufacturer and installer of single piece garage doors. These one piece doors were invented by his Uncle Leno Martin. Things have come a long ways since then.
From 1977 to 2011, Ken worked as a door manufacturing executive. Together Ken, his father and other family built Martin Door Mfg into an international manufacturer of Door and Gate Access Systems. Safety was the top priority at Martin Door Mfg.
Ken is a proud father and grandfather. As he loves spending time with his family. Keeping his children and grandchildren safe from these products is something he feels very strongly about. He continues to be an advocate for safety in these industries.
Ken is well known in his community and by his peers as an honest man who values and maintains his integrity.”
“My father is the most honest and caring man I have ever known.”
