Sound Off: Auto Dealers Praise Rytec High-Performance Doors


Savvy auto dealers know that building relationships with customers starts before they even enter the building. That’s why many dealerships are investing in high-speed, high-performance doors.

Upgrading standard sectional doors to modern high-performance doors helps dealers:

  • Reduce downtime
  • Reduce maintenance
  • Improve the customer experience
  • Enhance safety
  • Improve staff productivity
  • Reduce energy costs
  • Maintain environmental responsibility

But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what some of our best auto dealer principals have to say about Rytec doors:

Russ Humberston, Dealer Principal of Beaverton Toyota in Beaverton, Oregon, says the dealership installed Rytec doors because they provided a great environment for both customers and staff:

“The biggest reason we decided to use Rytec doors was that we thought they provided the best after-sell care for our customers. When they arrive in our service drive, they have a nice environment. It’s been great for employee morale, and it allows our service advisor to spend time with customers at their car, which is really what customers want,” he points out.

The doors also help their LEED® gold-certified building use less energy to heat the space. “At the end of the month, it’s been a nice saving for us and our utility bills,” he adds.

Michael Doherty, Dealer Principal of Doherty Ford in Forest Grove, Oregon, says his dealership’s Rytec doors have performed flawlessly for his customers and employees:

“Our techs love it, our service advisors love it and customers love it. When you pull up to that door and it’s up instantaneously, everybody’s jaw drops,” he says. “I would absolutely recommend Rytec doors to other dealerships.”

Treasure Coast Lexus in Fort Pierce, Florida was designed around the principles of Feng Shui, which is the practice of arranging pieces in living spaces to create harmony and balance. Color-matched Spiral® doors help to create a peaceful, inviting environment that’s welcoming to customers. But owner Sandy Woods also recognizes the need to incorporate dramatic elements into the dealership environment.

“People notice things that are out of the ordinary. This is different. It’s innovative. It’s state-of-the-art, it’s high-tech. It fits in well with our motif,” he explains.

When a customer first purchases a car, a Spiral® door helps to elevate the experience. “The customer is filling out the paperwork and all of a sudden, the door opens and their car comes in. That’s a ‘Wow!’ moment,” Woods emphasizes.

Rytec doors also help to elevate the customer experience after the sale.

“When a person comes in here to get service, normally they don’t want to be here. It’s like going to a dentist to get a root canal. So, when you drive up to the door and it automatically opens – fast – it kind of takes the edge off,” he adds.

There’s no doubt in Woods’ mind that investing in high-speed, high-performance Rytec doors was the right decision:

“At this point, I wouldn’t recommend any other door. I’ve seen them all. I’ve owned 13 dealerships. This is by far the best door that I have ever seen.”
