I found this interesting Blog from our corporate office about the upcoming football game and how a creative solution helped make the upcoming half time show possible!
A Creative Solution to a Super Problem
Some of the garage door industry’s most experienced professionals work for Overhead Door™ distributors. We see evidence of it nearly every day in feedback from satisfied residential and commercial customers. In fact, even when our distributors are approached with a super-sized problem we can count on them to get super creative.
A perfect example is the Overhead Door Company™ of the Meadowlands, in the New York City area. Last year, MetLife Stadium, home of the NFL’s New York Giants and New York Jets, and the location of a particularly big football game taking place on February 2nd approached our distributor.
The owners of the stadium had a difficult problem. Plenty of doors, but all too small for the needs of the upcoming game. While MetLife Stadium has dock doors, they aren’t wide enough to accommodate the width of the set pieces for this year’s halftime show.
Creating a new opening for an event that only takes place annually, much less one-time only, didn’t make sense.
What to do?
Luckily, Overhead Door Company™ of the Meadowlands came up with a custom solution.
According to Jai Patel, general manager of Overhead Door™ of the Meadowlands, the team at MetLife Stadium is thrilled with the finished product. He said that the new doors are simple to operate and reliable. The stadium can also market the facility to new customers, such as Monster Jam trucks that hold an annual show at the arena.
As you watch the big halftime show this weekend, thank Overhead Door Company™ of the Meadowlands for their creative solution. Without them, Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers wouldn’t have their gear to pull off their performances.
