About Us


Since 1978, our business has been doors. Ownership and staff continue this legacy of consistency and the culture of quality found at Lynden Door. Product quality is driven by the hands-on approach of senior management, technological innovation, and rigorous engineering values – often exceeding industry standards.

Rooted in the Pacific Northwest

Lynden Door is located approximately 100 miles north of Seattle, Washington, near the Canadian border. Our manufacturing facility comprises over 350,000 square feet and is situated on 52 acres in Lynden, Washington. Our focus is to serve commercial markets throughout the Western United States (including Alaska and Hawaii) as well as broad distribution throughout Canada.
