FirstEnergyAll-American Soap Box Derby Countdown


Thank You Thursday - Precision Garage Door

Precision Garage Door

Three years ago the International Soap Box Derby and Precision Garage Door formed a partnership to provide Precision promotional opportunities through the Derby’s various programs. Over the last two years Precision has installed six garage doors on the Derby’s production facility at the Topside location. Three more will be installed later this fall.

Precision Garage Door’s mission is to provide outstanding garage door repair service, complete customer satisfaction, and a program that rewards excellence from our franchisees, technicians and staff. Their vision is to establish Precision Door Service as the public standard and national household name in garage door repair service.

“We’re so grateful for Precision Garage Door’s partnership,” said Derby Event Manager Morgan Garner. “Our production facility is quite old and needed more modern garage doors. Precision Garage Door’s team was very professional and came in and installed the doors in a timely manner. Our events team is especially grateful because it’s so much easier now to move our Soap Box Derby cars in and out of the facility.”

The Derby would like to say THANK YOU to Precision Garage Door for helping us continue our mission of building knowledge and character, and creating meaningful experiences through collaboration and fair and honest competition.

This is the 37th installment of our weekly “Thank You Thursday” feature. Each week we will offer a heartfelt “Thank You” to a corporation, civic or community leader, volunteer, foundation or an individual who has helped us continue our mission. To view previous features please click below.
