Over 60 Years of Dedicated, Gouker Family Service in Uniontown, PA
The Gouker name has been recognized across the area for many years as representing quality service and excellent products. The Gouker building, at 29 Stewart Avenue in Uniontown, has been the place to find that quality service. That is when John W. Gouker moved his radiator and car repair shop to Stewart Avenue in the early 1950s. The businesses that have evolved at that location since have grown and thrived through three generations of the Gouker family.
John W. Gouker passed away from cancer in 1967. His son, Ronald E. Gouker, Sr., took over the radiator and car repair business and began selling cars. Ron, skilled at car repair, became interested in doing electrical work. He became a member of the IBEW in the late 1960s. He met a man named Bob Lowe while working there.
History and Origins of Gouker Garage Doors
Bob had just returned to this area from California, where he was trying to start a business selling garage doors. Ron and Bob quickly became friends. The two decided to open a garage door business at Stewart Avenue in 1970. Ron already had the building at 29 Stewart Avenue and the mechanical skills that he had learned from his father. Bob brought the knowledge of installation and service of garage doors.
The two men sold, installed, and serviced garage doors from that time on. The business became well known in the area as “the” place to purchase quality doors and operators, and expert service. They called their business, R.H. Lowe Garage Doors, and the business grew. In 1978, Rob Lowe decided to pursue other interests and Ron Gouker bought out his interest in the company. From that time on, the garage door business in Uniontown became known as R.E. Gouker Garage Doors.
The Largest Garage Door Sales & Service Company in the Uniontown Area
The business, still operating at 29 Stewart Avenue, has grown to be the largest of its kind in the area. This is because Ron Gouker believed in only selling top quality garage doors and providing fast, efficient, and quality service. R.E. Gouker Co. works throughout the tri-state area installing and servicing both commercial and residential doors and operators.
Ron Gouker, Sr. lived for his business and loved what he did. In 2008, Ron was diagnosed with renal cancer. After a long, courageous battle with the disease, he died in 2014. Fortunately, his son, Ronald E. Gouker, II, a chiropractor in Uniontown, could operate the business during his father’s illness. Ronald II has taken over the operation of the garage door business. He continues to provide the products and services that fulfill the expectations of the people in this area.
