This edition of "Behind the Ribbon" was sent to us by Shanda Lockaby, Vice-President of the Overhead Door Company of Corbin™.
Arthur "Leland" Lockaby Sr. began working in the garage door industry in Richmond, Indiana in the 1960’s. After moving “back home” to Corbin, Kentucky, Leland and Naomi Sue Lockaby felt God leading them to start their own garage door business out of their home in Corbin, Kentucky. In 1976 Corbin Garage Doors was formed. In 1985 they moved the business from their home to the Cumberland Falls Hwy in Corbin.
In 1987 the expanding business was moved into a new office they built located next door at 3718 Cumberland Falls Hwy Corbin Kentucky where it is currently located. In 1997, day-to-day operations were turned over to the 2nd generation of Lockabys, Arthur L. Lockaby II and his wife Shanda Lockaby. Corbin Garage Doors, Inc. then partnered with the franchise of the oldest garage door manufacturer in the industry, Overhead Door Corporation. That's when they began operating under their franchise name of Overhead Door Company of Corbin. Businesses and homeowners have been relying on Overhead Door Company of Corbin for professional garage door service, repair and installation needs for over 45 years.
Sadly, in May 2017 we lost the patriarch of the family, Leland Lockaby passed away. We are now bringing the 3rd generation of Lockabys into the family business and we continue to instill in them the same principles that have guided our operations for almost half a century.
