"Delivering my other door up a 4,000 ft. mountain was quite a task but the Schweiss guys got it there. It was through the woods, up the hills, over the bridges, etc., but they got the job done. I've been into building design and architecture all my life. So it didn't take much thinking to go Schweiss for my carriage house too. These two hydraulic helicopter hangar doors are perfect. No loss of headroom. Very well built. Just lots of structural integrity. Schweiss makes a very good product and we've been very happy with their service. The doors were delivered on time as scheduled. It's the only door I would consider."
"We checked the Internet for airport hangars and found Schweiss, this Minnesota firm that apparently builds doors to any dimension. Their web site showed all sorts of unique installations. And that's how the idea of a 'window wall' came into being. Using a steel frame for the building turned out to be quite fortuitous, as we were able to weld the door's steel header and side supports to the frame of the house for increased strength. Our dual solar panel energy package charges a bank of batteries for art studio lighting, also including a 12-volt marine-grade battery that powers the hydraulic lift system that opens and closes the 1,700 lb. 'window wall' door. One battery easily handles the door."
"We knew about Schweiss, the Schweiss name was nothing new. I'm totally satisfied with the results. We haven't had any issues with the Schweiss door. The big 30' Schweiss hydraulic simply makes it easier to get big equipment, tractors with duals, combines, field cultivators, etc., in and out of the shop."
" I don't even know the warranty on these Schweiss doors and I'm not concerned. I know that I'm going to be taken care of and that's what counts. Each door is insulated for about an R30 factor. Plus Schweiss designed two windows for each door for added visibility and safety."
"ACCORDING TO THE OWNER WE ARE SUPPOSED TO CLOSE THIS DEAL THIS WEEK. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR THE PAST THREE WEEKS AND WE ARE NOT CLOSED YET. I HOPE TO KNOW BY FRIDAY. ONE THING IS FOR SURE, HE IS SOLD ON SCHWEISS. I TOOK HIM TO ONE OUR BUILDINGS THAT HAS A BIG H DOOR AND THEN WE WENT TO THE BUILDING WITH THE SCHWEISS DOOR. HIS WORDS WERE . . . THIS SCHWEISS COMPANY KNOWS HOW TO BUILD A DOOR. I WOULDNT TAKE ONE OF THOSE OTHER DOORS IF IT WERE FREE AFTER I HAVE SEEN THIS ONE."
"Just a quick note to THANK YOU for providing a flawless product. Your doors installed perfectly, as described and operate awesome from the first time. I'm Happy, Well done. "
" I just wanted to say thank you for the fine quality of our new door, as well as compliment you on your choice of Joel Pingeon Trucking for the delivery. Their driver, Brian was first class in every respect. Despite the fact that he was inconvenienced by the wide load restrictions for the delivery to our site and had to spend the weekend with us at the airport, the entire delivery went well. Thank you for your selection of this trucking company. We have many come and go during the course of construction, however Brian at Joel Pingeon Trucking has been the best by far."
"Good morning, thanks Mike for returning my call on Saturday night ... you have and will always be rock star status support on your products! This was no exception! I have had nothing but smooth trouble-free operation of your door and the best support when I installed it a few years ago!"
"Thank you for the quick response. I worked for 3M for 25 years engineering and purchasing equipment and I have never gotten as complete a specification and quote this quickly from anyone. It is everything I need to know. It is truly amazing and probably one of the best reasons to buy from this company, if you can handle the quoting this well you will probably handle the door this well. Thanks again. I need to save up my pennies and am considering a spring installation so I will get back to you early next year. "
"Long ago, after a decade of fighting with the old doors on my hangar, a pilot pal told me about this little start-up company in Fairfax, Minnesota that made bifold doors. So, I checked it out, and a few months later had a Schweiss door installed. That was too many years ago to remember the exact year, but I do remember two things vividly. How Julie, the gal on the phone, made me feel as if my purchase would be the most important sale Schweiss would make that year. And how I kicked myself for not having installed this door when the hangar was built; I would have been money and headache ahead. A lot of years have flown past since, and Schweiss has made a lot of changes, but one thing has clearly remained constant. These people truly care about every customer, regardless of how small we may be. How can I say that? Last month, March 2013, when a small electrical component finally wore out, the gal on the phone not only remembered that long ago sale of a small door, but the entire Schweiss crew treated me as if I was still the most important customer they would have this year. When it comes to quality, service and downhome honesty, all manufacturing companies, regardless of their product, would be made better if they studied this big door company that still has that 'small shop' caring attitude. "
"Thanks again for your prompt reply to my email. Since speaking with you, I've been kicking around your web page, as advertising and marketing is something I've dabbled in for 40 years, writing grocery ads, television ads for US House and Senate candidates, gubernatorial candidates and state fairs. Hence, it is with some experience that I can tell you that YOUR web page may just be the best I've seen in the past ten years. I'm serious. Your page is extremely well done. (Enjoyed the video that shared the 'boat house' on Lake Vermillion, but it shook up my wife a bit. When the guy started his boat, Sheila heard it all the way from the other room and thought I was having trouble with irregularity.) Again, thanks...and congratulations on having such an impressive company."
"Good morning! I recently asked you for a list of repairmen in Northern Nevada to service my bifold. You recommended D&D Overhead Doors (among others) in Reno. They came down to Carson City and the repairman did a great job addressing the problem and checking out the whole system. He really knows his stuff (I'm 80 and can't remember names!) I believe in recommending people who do good work, which is the reason for this letter. Thought you would like some feedback."
"Hi Mike, You won't remember me from Oshkosh , but I remember you. My bifold hangar door has been operating perfectly now for 22 years. It takes a good Mid Westerner to produce an outstanding product, and your company has done it. I don't fly anymore, but I think about it a lot. I built a Kitfox and a Wheeler Express and I'm still alive. My son-in-law is a top sales person with PELLA windows and doors out of Pella, Iowa. I was an installer with Pella for a number of years and saw a possible interaction for both venues. I'm a retired surgeon, and believe in your products, check your old records. You sell a great product, and so does Pella. Sincerely Jim Kolberg, M.D."
"Dear Dave: I wanted to say thanks for the quick work in helping to get our problem solved with our bifold door. No one likes it when things get mixed up but your cooperation in coming up with a remedy took a lot of the sting out of it. You folks make a fine product that you can be proud of and I am proud to put your door on my building. Your instruction manuals and illustrations are some of the best that I have seen. But I wanted to say a special thanks for sending up Darrel. I apologize for not knowing his last name but a finer workman you could not have chosen. His hard work and attention to detail were a pleasure to watch. He always went the extra distance to get it right and took the time to make good suggestions and implement them. I think that he would have worked all day without a break if I would have let him. You can tell that he has a farm background where people know how to work. He was a gentleman and a pleasure to work with. I'm sure that you folks take good care of such a fine employee. By the way you can tell him that I got my tape measure back."
"We FINALLY FULFILLED a lifelong dream and built our own airplane hangar and we LOVE IT.....the SCHWEISS HYDRAULIC DOOR is BY FAR the MAIN REASON that our building is SO USEFUL, SECURE, and CONVENIENT...I have been around airplane hangars for my ENTIRE FLYING LIFE and THIS DOOR MAKES THIS HANGAR SUPERIOR in EVERY WAY. IT'S JUST a FACT."
