Even though the Kansas Doors Inc. office in Dodge City has closed, the company continues to serve customers in southwest Kansas.
Matt Hoisington of Great Bend recently purchased Kansas Doors, which is now a subsidiary of C & V Home Improvement Inc. Hoisington also owns C & V, 1107 E. 10th in Great Bend.
The Dodge City office, which opened in 2010, had been located at 306 W. McArtor Road.
“We know that the Dodge City and Garden City areas have depended on Kansas Doors over the years,” Hoisington said. “The company has served many businesses and contractors, and we will continue to do so.”
The Great Bend-based company provides commercial and residential doors.
“These include overhead and walk-in doors,” Hoisington noted. “We also offer both C.H.I. and Raynor garage doors so that customers have options that will fit their needs.”
Four experienced installers have remained with the company, which continues to provide 24-hour service for commercial customers,” Hoisington said. “These professional installers are a big plus for our clientele. Each has at least 12-years experience, and the office manager is staying with the company, too.
“This team has a wonderful dynamic, which has made for a smooth transition,” he continued. “Kansas Doors’ customers can rely on this solid group of professionals.”
Jim Gretz, former Kansas Doors owner, is pleased Hoisington bought the business.
“It is good to see Matt go in and run with it,” Gretz said. “I am happy a local family bought Kansas Doors. I will be helping Matt during the transition, getting him comfortable with the day-to-day processes.
“He is a nice guy who cares about his employees and customers,” Gretz added. “He seems like a go-getter, and that is what it takes.”
Gretz has 27 years invested in the door business, with 14 of those at Kansas Doors.
