Horton Automatics team

About Us

From our manufacturing facility in Telford, Shropshire; we work with customers across the UK to provide high quality automatic and specialist doors suited to their projects. We are part of the American based Horton Automatics company who are a division of the Overhead Door Corporation, so we have a wealth of industry experience. Along with being one of the leading manufacturers of automatic doors in the UK, Horton Automatics also provides installation and servicing. The servicing option is extremely important to us as we believe in maintaining automatic doors so that they are safe, perform correctly and are legally compliant. We offer a range of servicing plans and our team of accredited engineers operate a 24-hour service nationwide across the UK – so you can rely on us to be there. Servicing options are tailored to the customer’s requirements and budget.
