What Members are Saying

“As an IDA member, we have benefited from networking with other dealers.

“We discovered many new ideas from dealers we’ve met during the annual IDAExpo. We found the software we use at the IDAExpo as well as developing relationships with certain exhibitors. The sense of belonging to a larger core group brings with it a good feeling both personally and business-wise. We are IDEA accredited and four fire door technicians are IDEA certified, which helps set us apart from our competition.”

- Luke Yoder, Wayne Garage Door Sales & Service, Inc., Dover, Ohio

“We always like to attend the IDAExpo because there is nothing better than begin able to speak with the key people from the manufacturers we deal with on a day-to-day basis.

“These are the companies that provide us the products we use to make our living every day. As for relationships, some of the closest people in my life are in the door industry local and long distance, and IDA Expo allow us a couple days to all get together.”

- Bob McManus, Jr., Door Boy, LLC, Berkeley Heights, New Jersey
