garagedoorWorld leader in garage door operators, LiftMaster, the brand for the professional, made by the US based Chamberlain group, Inc, wants to increase market share on the European market and be among the top players in the long term.

LiftMaster is the number one manufacturer of garage door operators worldwide having sold more units to date than all of its competitors combined. With more than 45 years expertise on automatic opening systems for individuals and professionals alike, LiftMaster is well recognised for its innovative technology, connected products, design quality and high performance systems.

Already leading the industry in the US, LiftMaster aims to grow its European product range over the coming months and sees UK growth for both commercial and residential units as a key target.

LiftMaster is well ahead of the field of connected products and with increased interest in the Smart home and the ever booming Internet of Things, LiftMaster is firmly positioned to drive innovation through its myQ® technology.

From anywhere in the world, LiftMaster already offers its users the capability of opening and closing garage doors and gates remotely whenever they choose.

LiftMaster’s myQ is one of the first technologies to partner with Google Nest®, allowing users to control garage doors, Nest CamTM and “Nest Learning ThermostatTM from anywhere within one app. Following this partnership, a second partnership is due to be launched in 2017 with Home Kit, the connected homes solution from Cupertino based technology giant Apple.

“Over the past two years, we achieved single­digit growth and the first quarter of 2016 is looking very positive, with double­digit growth compared to the same period in 2015. In the short term, we want to strengthen our already strong position in UK and cement our presence in Europe, among the top suppliers”, explains Katja von Raven, President of Chamberlain EMEAA.

To build on this, LiftMaster® has strengthened its sales and marketing teams adding experienced leaders in the field in key positions across Europe.

Present in the UK for more than 30 years, one of the largest markets in Europe for garages and gates, the brand often works alongside manufacturers including the likes of Garage Door Systems, North Valley Forge and Easy Gates.
