M & O Metals, Inc. was founded in 1970 by Alvin Fuchs and Larry Martinson to provide miscellaneous and ornamental fabricated metal products to the construction industry in eastern and central Nebraska.

The letters "M & O" originally stood for "Miscellaneous and Ornamental". Custom metal fabrication was the company's primary activity for the first several years. Mr. Martinson left the company in 1977 and Alvin's son Dan joined M & O Metals later that year.

In the late 1970's, contractors began inquiring about steel doors, frames and builders hardware. M & O Metals established relationships with The Ceco Corporation and several builders' hardware manufacturers and began supplying local construction projects. The commercial door and hardware business continued to grow to the point it became necessary to operate it as a separate division and began doing business as M & O Door Products.

In 1980, M & O Metals partnered with Overhead Door Corporation to expand its product offering with overhead sectional and rolling steel shop doors and residential garage doors. Overhead Door Co. of Columbus was created as a third division of the corporation.

A year later, M & O Door Products became a distributor for Overhead Door Corporation's Horton Automatics division, adding automatic powered-operated swinging and sliding commercial doors to its product offering.

Through the years, M & O Metals has established many more vendor partnerships, allowing us to offer additional brands and products to our valued customers. Today, M & O Door Products and Overhead Door Co. of Columbus serve customers in commercial, manufacturing, healthcare, utility and lodging industries as well as education, government and residential customers.

Metal fabrication operations were halted in 2011, allowing the company to focus on what has now become our primary business: Commercial pedestrian doors and overhead shop and garage doors.
