Morgan Corporation – Canada

AM Group company – Dover Roller Shutter USA provided aluminum roll up doors to Morgan Corporation in Brampton, Canada.  Dover worked with engineers from Morgan Corporation Headquarters in Morgantown, Pennsylvania to come up with a roll up door for the side of a Morgan box truck designed to deliver medical products in the Toronto area.

The aluminum roll up door provided access to a side compartment containing oxygen bottles and allowed the delivery person to get to the bottle without entering the body from the rear.  It also provided easy access in restricted access areas which are often encountered on city streets or parking lots.

This project was a perfect example of Dover USA assisting the manufacturer in the best design to fit the purpose.  It was a coordinated effort between sales and engineering departments of both companies to provide the end user a perfect product.
