The original company was formed in 1948 as Porcelain Veneer Inc., manufacturing exterior porcelain panels for the service station industry. In 1952, the Company added architectural facing to its product line by manufacturing sun and shade screens for the high rise industrial and commercial buildings. In 1968 the Company added continuous steel sheet doors to its product line. This door revolutionized the door industry and with this success the Company put all its resources in this product line and formed a new Company as Porvene Roll-A-Door, Inc. In 1993 the Company was restructured and changed its name to Porvene Doors, Inc.
Since 1968, the Company has been the leader in the continuous steel sheet door and has branched out into the Heavy Duty Rolling Steel Slat Door. In 1990 the Company introduced this product line with the same high standards that were used in the introduction of the continuous steel sheet door. The design and operation features of the slat door are superior within the industry and can meet the needs and requirements of most applications. The Company has also introduced a Rolling Grille and a Steel Backed Insulated Rolling Steel Door with the same high standards as its other products. In 2011, Porvene introduced a line of Commercial Sectional doors. The line includes Standard Lift, High Lift, Vertical Lift, and soon to be Insulated Steel Backed Door to be introduced in 2012.
