He discovers that he can purchase the assets of a garage door manufacturing company located in Saint-Georges, Quebec, Canada. Garaga is born. Michel Gendreau pledges to offer a higher quality product and better customer service than what exists at the time. The first product from Garaga, previously unknown in Canada, is a light insulated aluminum garage door in a choice of six colors.
