About Us

Engineered with the precision, durability and performance you’ve come to expect from a true industry pioneer, Flex by Horton delivers quality pedestrian access solutions without stretching your budget. Horton has been at the forefront of automatic and manual door design and manufacturing since 1960.

Flex by Horton takes everything that Horton has learned during that time and integrated it into a diverse, sensible product portfolio that delivers impressive safety, convenience and functionality at an optimal price point for select projects. Choose from a range of innovative multi-use packages for office buildings, retail, hotels, airports, service windows, hurricane-rated applications and more. All systems feature rugged corner-block construction for added strength and rigidity. Flex by Horton’s unique design platform makes it easy to request custom touches not available with other manufacturers. For quality access solutions backed by outstanding service and customer support, contact us on your next project.

Horton was founded by Lew Hewitt and Dee Horton in the mid 1950’s when they realized that swing doors had difficulty operating in windy Corpus Christi, Texas. With that Lew and Dee set out to invent the automatic sliding door to circumvent the windy conditions and forever revolutionized pedestrian accesses for years to come!

Horton is a division of Overhead Door Corporation. Overhead Door invented the first upward-acting door in 1921 and the first electric door opener in 1926. Today, Overhead Door continues to be the industry leader through the strength of their product innovation, superior craftsmanship and outstanding customer support.

Sanwa Holdings is the parent company of Overhead Door. Established in 1956 as a shutter manufacturer, Sanwa pioneered the engineering, production, marketing and distribution of steel building materials throughout the Pacific Rim. Today, Sanwa is the number one manufacturer of construction products in Japan and has leveraged its brand equity to become the recognized industry leader worldwide.
