Elio’s natural craftsmanship and dedication were the beginning of a family tradition, which to this day, is one the company is still based on.
Elio Granzotto, a renowned classic art wood sculptor, began to perfect his craft in Italy. Specializing in fine, intricate wood designs, Elio demonstrated excellence in the ability to create/represent wood as a form of art through carving, casting, and other shaping techniques. His talents were well received/recognized by custom home builders and architects, who commissioned him to create entry-way systems, cabinetry and custom wood home décor. As result of his dedication, an opportunity to share his greatness was presented… Doorland was born.
In 1978, Elio had completed his first custom door project. The success of his work extended through the industry, beginning the development of a brand that would soon be recognized as a standard of excellence. Aside from his artistic ability, his vision included a consultative approach, traditional work ethic, flexible design and strong client collaboration. In 1979, his vision had officially been realized with the formation of Doorland Doors.
