Beacon CDL: A Commercial Door Company
As the New Year approaches we look back at our history and remember our legacy as a commercial door company.
Beacon Metals was founded in 1966 by John Riches. Just before the founding of Beacon Metals, John worked for Buehner block. Part of his role at Buehner block was working with window bucks and commercial metal doors. When the Buehner family decided to focus solely on their core business of bricks and blocks, John was offered the opportunity to purchase the window buck and commercial door division from the Buehner’s.
Beacon Metals was founded from that beginning as a commercial door company. The name Beacon Metals was chosen because, at the time, one of the founders lived on Beacon Street and they felt that the name Beacon would put them at a higher spot in the Phone Book (how times have changed!).
Beacon Metals started with offerings in commercial aluminum doors and windows, commercial hollow metal doors and frames, as well as shower enclosures. Over the years Beacon Metals has grown to offer commercial wood doors and several different premium lines of commercial door hardware. Beacon Metals leased office and warehouse space in a few different buildings throughout South Salt Lake. Because of sustained growth, Beacon Metals purchased and built our current facility on West Temple in 1986.
Commercial Door Company
Beacon continues to grow and we look ahead to the innovative future before us. At the end of 2016, Beacon Metals went through some major changes and re-branded as Beacon Commercial Door & Lock. The company’s current facility was updated and improvements were made. As our commercial door company has grown, new staff has been brought on and a plan of progress and innovation has continued to be our vision.
Beacon Commercial Door & Lock is still supplying the great commercial doors and hardware that we always have but we are doing it in ways we have never done it before.
