You and your family decided to have a family vacation in Little Rock, AR this year. You rented a cabin and are playing by the water when one of you cuts the bottom of your foot with a piece of glass you don’t see.
You google the nearest hospital and its Arkansas State Hospital and it’s only ten minutes away. You rush there and into the Emergency Room to be seen.
Everything is okay once you get your stitches and, of course, your tetanus shot because you can’t remember the last time you had yours.
Remember the doors you went in and out of to get through to the Emergency Room? Automatic Door Sales & Service might have put those in.
Carey Roseberry, owner and operator of CH Dixon Inc has many companies under his business name and one of them is Automatic Door Sales & Services in Little Rock, AR.
They install and service pedestrian automatic sliding door and automatic operators, like the one you would have gone through in the Emergency Room. The majority of their business is to the healthcare industry. They are also a Horton Door distributor for central Arkansas.
“We also sell, install and service all types of commercial manual doors such as, steel, aluminum and wood, to name a few,” said Roseberry.
Roseberry and his partner, Jim Pierce, purchased this business from Bob Noland in 2007 when he decided he wanted to retire. They purchased the business when Roseberry decided to call a business broker and told him that he wanted to buy a service business and that he really didn’t care what it was.
“A couple of months later we purchase Automatic Door Sales & Service. This is a very unique business and we have enjoyed the opportunities the last six and a half years,” said Roseberry.
In September 2008 Roseberry purchased Lamarr Glass & Door in Texarkana, TX which was changed to Dixon Glass & Door when it was purchased. At both locations they work Monday thru Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a technician on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The economy has impacted their business, like every other small business, according to Roseberry, but they have managed to increase revenue and add two new locations since the original purchase in 2007. “We ride the economy roller coaster of ups and downs, but have weathered the slow times well enough to continue to grow the business.”
Roseberry first heard about Citizen Potawatomi Community Development Corporation from a family member in 2009. Since then he has received and paid off a loan for Dixon Glass & Door in Texarkana, TX and is currently in the process of purchasing another business in Rogers, AR.
Once Pierce and Roseberry purchase the business in Rogers, AR they will be joined by another partner, Brent Paulson. Though Roseberry will be the majority owner in the company, he takes care of the people who have invested their lives in this company, according to Roseberry.
“I would not be able to purchase the business without their help. Bob Crothers is excellent and very enjoyable to work with,” said Roseberry.
