April 22, 2022

Garaga Mid-America Door was extremely pleased and honored to be one of the finalists chosen by the Ponca City Chamber of Commerce for the prestigious Industry of the Year award. Unfortunately, last January the Chamber of Commerce’s celebration had to be postponed due to the COVID surge, keeping everyone on the edge of their seats for an extra 3 months. On Thursday April 21, 2022, the wait came to a fitting conclusion when Garaga-Mid America Door was presented with the coveted award!

Our commitment to improving our workers’lives and to modernising our facility was recognized by the community

We are extremely proud of these achievements, of course. And we are grateful to the PCDA, the Chamber, and the community for recognizing our success. But what we are even more proud of are our team members! As you can imagine, implementing so many changes in only 2 years was demanding. The women and men working at our Ponca City facility were open minded and willing to change their habits. They proved to us that they could meet challenges.”, said Maxime Gendreau, co-president.
