JVS Garage Door Co. was founded in 1974 by Jim & Bev Schwind. Originally a small part time business, the Schwind's installed electric garage door openers in their local market. As the business grew, JVS ventured into servicing, selling, and installing garage doors. Today, JVS has a fleet of trucks that services a 60 mile radius; traveling even farther on large jobs.
In 1983, the Schwind’s future son-in-law, Dick Lano, joined the company. With the two men working in the field and the mother and daughter team of Bev and Jami Schwind running the office, the business continued to expand. In 1990, the Schwind’s sold their interests in the company to Dick & Jami Lano, and JVS Garage Door started a new era under the leadership of Dick. Dick Lano was the first Door Industry Certified Master Technician in the State of Ohio and our lead installer was the second Certified Master Technician in the State.
In 2002, JVS moved into a spacious building on 20 Park Drive in the Port Clinton Office Industrial Park, just down the street from their old shop. One of the most exciting features of this location is the large and open showroom. The showroom features fully operational models of doors & electric openers, which allows customers to research the different styles of doors, the many window options, and color selections that are available; basically "kick the tires" before buying. Also, on view for inspection are cupolas, weathervanes, and various types of screens for your garage door openings, all of these can be professionally installed by JVS Garage Door.
