The DH Pace Company, Inc. traces its roots back to the 1920s with the invention of the upward-acting garage door. In 1926, the first location opened as the Overhead Door Company of St. Louis™ under the Overhead Door™ Red Ribbon logo. A year later, Overhead Door Company of Kansas City™ (1927) and a few years later the Overhead Door Company of Atlanta™ (1935) opened for business. In 1973, the operation of these three entities consolidated and became divisions of DH Pace Company, Inc. In 1995, the Company began selling commercial products and services under the DH Pace brand name in select markets. In 2003, the Systems Integration division was formed to provide access control, video surveillance, intrusion alarm and parking control system products and services.
