In an interview with the CPO for Murphy Door Marc Andrae states "With these new upgrades Murphy Door has been able to not only deliver much higher quantities of our production hidden doors and hardware systems at the same high level of quality, but we have also decreased our cost to manufacture our products. In addition this has helped us solidify our already great working relationships with our dealers/ distributors by expediting our hugely successful stock and drop ship services." Mr. Andrae made it clear in this interview that Murphy Door is absolutely committed to not only keeping their high end doors, level of quality, but decreasing the end cost to its consumers,
The focus for Murphy Door in the past has been to deliver high end products like their Panic Door and panic room systems to the high end buyers without budgets. But with the change in the economy in 2007 they changed their focus to median and lower income buyers, as well as offering their once proprietary hardware systems to their clients, enabling others to build their own hidden doors.
The CEO of Murphy Door Inc. Jeremy Barker states “In the last couple years buyers have been forced to downsize their homes increasing the need to maximize the use of every square foot." Murphy Door has been featured on many home improvement shows in the past year as well as being interviewed by several periodicals with theirs space saving and hidden door ideas, identifying Murphy Door as "a must have in every home." Mr. Barker states "there are several million closets in the USA with non-functional closet doors that could use our systems to maximize the usable space in their homes." With these huge improvements Murphy Door states they will be able to deliver thousands of additional doors and hardware units per month.

Murphy Doors is proud to be able to bring such a savings to their consumers. They recognize there are other doors to choose from on the market, but none offer the ease and quality of their systems. In addition their manuals and online videos offer a step by step process including material take offs and step by step instructions. These instructions walk the customer through each phase of the project. A novice can install one of their doors in as little as 1 hour.

Murphy Door understands the need for retailers to carry products that have a very low return rate, currently they are running less than a 2% return and or warranty percentage on the hardware and less than a 1% return or defect rate on their doors. This Mr. Barker states is due to their simple to use and install door and hardware systems as well as their wonderful manual and online installation videos.
Mr. Barker spent many years supplying the big box hardware stores with wooden storage sheds and kits so he understands the need of the typical buyer to understand their project at an elementary level, this helps minimize the call and return rate of these types of products. Murphy Door prides themselves in their simple, fail proof design and instructions.
Murphy Door is excited about their new pricing and is actively seeking distributors around the globe.
