who we are
Terryco was started in the early 90's
In the early 90's Terry was attending a trade show where he met a gentleman who was selling an automatic door opener for residential use. Seeing the simplicity of how this door opener was built and the ease of how it would install peaked his interest to no end. He told people about it, thought about it and couldn't stop thinking about it. Thus the new adventure in life began.
Terryco was the first Distributor for Gentleman Door Company and with that the joy of watching a company grow from a product that by today's standards was about as crude as it could get but worked like nothing seen before on the market. Soon it became clear that the we could help more people than possibly imagined and we embarked on making the product more appealing.
We were doing trade shows throughout the Northeast and had the joy of meeting people from all walks of life were excepting us with open arms. It was then that I new I had found my calling in life.
I didn't then and I don't today see it as a calling in life to become a rich man but as someone that can help others who can benefit from what I am offering them. To enable a person the ability to go to work or simply open the door for fresh air.
