WAYNE, PAGuardian Capital Partners has unveiled its latest venture, the North American Door & Dock platform. This new initiative kicked off with the acquisition of American Overhead Door & Dock, LLC (AODD), a leading company in the door and dock service industry based in Levittown, PA.

Since its establishment in 1989 by Joe Swope Jr., AODD has emerged as a pivotal player in the tri-state area, extending its reach to Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, New York, and beyond. The company specializes in a broad spectrum of services, including the sales, installation, maintenance, and repair of doors, loading dock equipment, and safety products. Its diverse clientele spans various sectors such as commercial, industrial, cold storage, distribution, and pharmaceutical industries.

Damien Gresko, Principal at Guardian, expressed admiration for AODD’s stellar reputation and service track record. “We are extremely impressed with American’s industry reputation and track record of outstanding service in the region,” Gresko stated, emphasizing the firm’s commitment to expanding AODD’s market reach.

The partnership is celebrated by AODD’s founders and leadership, with Joe Swope Jr. acknowledging Guardian’s operator-centric culture and shared vision as key motivators behind the alliance. “We are proud of the reputation we have built over the years and are excited for the next chapter of growth for the company,” Swope remarked. His sons, Joe Swope III and Devon Swope, also expressed enthusiasm about continuing the company’s legacy under Guardian’s guidance, aiming to solidify AODD’s position as the preferred supplier in its operating regions.

Ryan Northington, Partner at Guardian, highlighted the significant potential of this partnership, noting that AODD’s extensive industry relationships, comprehensive service offering, and unwavering dedication to quality and customer satisfaction lay a strong foundation for the North American Door & Dock platform. “We look forward to growing organically and welcoming other great businesses onto this platform,” Northington said, outlining the ambitious growth plans for the platform informed by Guardian’s thematic investment approach within facility services.

This acquisition marks the beginning of what promises to be an expansive growth trajectory for the North American Door & Dock platform, setting a precedent for further strategic acquisitions and organic expansion efforts.
