Since our customers are primarily DIY homeowners as well as contractors looking for better options, having a complete package that works well together is key
Bernalillo, NM (PRWEB) October 31, 2008
Amazing Gates of America, LLC announces today that it is acquiring the professional series automatic gate opener product line from Zareba Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:ZRBA). Amazing Gates ships "Do-It-Yourself" wrought iron driveway gates and fence to customers across the United States. Ken Helfer, Managing Partner at Amazing Gates, says that he is looking forward to adding the new gate openers to the product line up. "Since our customers are primarily DIY homeowners as well as contractors looking for better options, having a complete package that works well together is key," says Helfer. "Our customers want to know that when everything arrives off the truck, it is going to work together seamlessly. With this acquisition, we are in an even better position to control the quality of our customers' experience."
The company says it does not plan to market to distributors, as Zareba did, but will offer the new gate openers directly to its own customers beginning November 1. "For years we've had the ability to bring our gates and fence from the factory directly to the consumer, which means our customers save money," says Amazing Gates' Marketing Director, Mary Chambers. "We are excited to offer our own professional electronics package. Our customers will definitely benefit from the cost savings and the quality of the design."
Amazing Gates revolutionized the gate and fence industry in the 1990's by designing a "pre-hung" wrought iron driveway gate that could be shipped to a home or business and installed easily on site. While many companies in the industry have imitated the model during recent years, Amazing Gates remains the leader, and now is the only company to offer its own brand of driveway gates, garden gates, wrought iron fence and automatic gate openers.
"Zareba designed a very reliable gate operator. We are thrilled to make it our own," says Helfer.
