In 1982 Ramtech Modular Design began operations as a small modular dealership in Arlington, Texas. At the time there was a slow evolutionary change taking place in the modular industry, which up to that point was controlled by several large modular leasing companies. These leasing companies primarily purchased their product through a network of wholesale manufacturers, most of whom did not have the capability to design and build structures with a higher degree of sophistication which limited the types of projects we could pursue. Frustrated at the inability to get the kind of product that was needed for more complex projects, Ramtech chose to transition into a direct sale manufacturer and opened its own modular manufacturing plant at the 20 acre site we presently occupy in Mansfield, Texas.
Now able to tackle a broader and more sophisticated level of projects, Ramtech Modular Design was rebranded as Ramtech Building Systems, and within our first decade we had expanded our manufacturing capacity three times. Ramtech began to hire the best employees in the industry many of whom are still with us today, allowing us to become the premier modular design, manufacturing, and construction company in the Southwest. Our mission was simple - stay profitable and remain financially strong, treat our employees well and provide our customers with the best value-engineered relocatable and permanent modular buildings available. This focus on the fundamentals not only helped Ramtech to succeed, but also supported the development of the modular industry as a whole.
Now in our fourth decade of operation with a resume of over 3,500 successfully completed projects, Ramtech continues to be a national leader and innovator in the development of modular and prefabricated buildings. Our Accelerated Building System, a proprietary permanent construction process that combines a prefabricated structure with a conventional concrete slab foundation, has steadily gained acceptance by architects, large contractors, commercial entities, and institutional agencies as a faster and less costly alternative to standard site construction methods. Ramtech executives also continue to serve and support the state and national modular industry by serving on the Texas Industrial Building Code Council and in leadership positions with the Modular Building Institute, the industry's international trade association.
