Let's Get Acquainted

Rooted in Service & Dedication to Customers

The background of our inception starts first with a young man who had nothing to start out with except dreams of creating a new life, a strong set of values, and a solid work ethic that he had learned growing up. Dave Guthrie started his door career working for Overhead Door Company in Des Moines, Iowa while in high school. He quickly learned the garage door industry, and, after returning from his service in the United States Navy, became an installer for Adams Door Company in Bettendorf, Iowa.

After several years in this location, he transferred, in 1980, to a brand new Adams Door location in Des Moines, Iowa after realizing the growth potential of the area. In 1992, Raynor Garage Doors of Kansas City was born, and Dave became a partner and eventually sole owner with his wife of 45 years, Sheila. They have been working alongside each other since 1983.

Raynor Kansas City truly is a family-owned and operated company. In 1994, Dave and Sheila’s son, Mike, joined the business, serving in many roles over the years.  He now serves as the Company’s Vice President - Sales and Marketing as well as recently completed a 3 year term as a Director for the International Door Association from 2018-2021. The company remains family-owned, and the owners actively manage the business on a daily basis.

Remaining True to Guiding Principles

Thanks to foresight, dedicated associates, the best suppliers in the industry, the loyal support of customers through the years, and most of all God’s goodness, we have grown into a thriving organization. Much has changed over the years, but our guiding principles of integrity, service and value have stayed the same, and we believe they will guide us well as we embrace the future.
