Franklin Door & Dock, a local installer of commercial doors, dock equipment and residential garage doors, held a ribbon cutting in honor of its recent opening Thursday in partnership with Williamson, Inc.
Now located off of Downs Boulevard, Franklin Door & Dock opened its new location in November and is ready to assist its customers with all their door and dock needs.
“We’ve been in the business a number of years, since 2009. I’ve been in the dock equipment business for a lot longer than that,” owner Ned Jones said. “What we do at Franklin Door & Dock is commercial and residential garage doors. We also do loading dock equipment for commercial accounts.”
Jones has over 40 years of experience, and his staff of seven have a combined over 75 years of experience in the garage door and dock leveler industry. He has also called Franklin home since 1979.
“It’s been a wonderful time here in Franklin,” Jones said. “My family has grown up here, and I get to see my grandkids because my children didn’t have to leave to go find work somewhere else like in some other cities they do.”
Whether it’s a garage door installation, service or preventive maintenance, Jones recommends letting the professionals handle anything related to garage doors, since the springs and other components can potentially be dangerous work.
