The manufacturing industry offers ever-evolving, dynamic career opportunities in the STEM fields. These opportunities are available for students wanting to earn a college degree as well as those who are ready to enter the workforce right after graduation. With opportunities for advancement, on-site job training, tuition reimbursement and competitive salaries and benefits, a career in manufacturing should be on every high school student’s list to consider.

Unfortunately, manufacturers are struggling to find the workforce they need to keep up with the demands of the industry. A big reason for this is a perpetuating myth that manufacturing facilities are full of general laborers who work in unsafe conditions in dead-end jobs. This could not be farther from the truth.

NAPOLEON/LYNX is a world leader in the manufacturing, distribution, and marketing of garage doors and garage door components. Privately owned for over 25 years, the company began in 1963 manufacturing garage door springs and hardware from a small factory located in Montreal, Canada. As the Canadian door market grew, NAPOLEON/LYNX recognized the need to expand our product line to accommodate our customers with a wider selection of products.

In 1977, Lynx became the first company in Canada to manufacture residential and commercial electric door openers and soon included the distribution of residential and commercial steel insulated doors.
As the 1980’s approached, the company expanded again with the introduction of its own line of garage doors known today as the Encore and the Uni-Com.

The success of these new products led to the acquisition of one of Canada’s largest door manufacturers, Ambassador Manufacturing. We continued manufacturing the existing products offered by Ambassador and developed new products for our industry. Lynx Industries was well on its way to becoming the only full line manufacturer in Canada.

This goal was achieved in 1985 with the acquisition of the J.M. Die Company of Mississauga, Canada, a well-known stamping and roll-forming company of garage door hardware.

With a commitment to becoming the best in the industry, we found ourselves poised to enter the U.S. market and acquired Napoleon Spring Works (NSW) of Archbold, Ohio in 1986.

With over 60 years of experience in the spring and hardware business, Napoleon Spring Works and Lynx Industries were now able to combine their talents to create the best and most complete manufacturer of hardware, springs, sectional doors, and garage door openers in the world.
