Ramtech Acquires BBB Accredited Business Certification

Posted on: May 11th, 2017 by (No Comments)

In late April Ramtech joined the Better Business Bureau and was immediately granted an Accredited Business Certification with an A+ rating. In Ramtech’s 35 year history, the BBB has yet to field a single compliant on Ramtech. This information was provided by the BBB at the time of the application and was astonishing to our business advisor considering Ramtech’s tenure and the litigious nature of the construction industry.

While this may be amazing to an outsider, it comes as no surprise to us. Our culture from day-one has been to “do-it-right” and exceed the customer’s expectations. In the commercial modular building industry, few companies have this outstanding track record. Whether it be Permanent Modular Construction (PMC) or relocatable buildings for education, government, medical or commercial applications, Ramtech’s team of designers, production associates as well as our construction group are poised to continue our sterling record of customer satisfaction.

Ramtech will also be responsible for the installation of the building which will be set on a pier foundation. The building will be built as a co-op effort with Ramtech and other local general contractors.

Meet Ramtech’s Design Group

Posted on: October 20th, 2016 by (No Comments)

The following is a page that was recently added to all of Ramtech’s websites (www.ramtechmodular.com, www.ramtecheducation.com, and www.ramtechmedical.com). As a design-build modular provider that produces three distinct product lines (relocatable modular buildings, permanent modular construction and pre-fabricated construction), the demands placed on our design group are significant. While there are many great manufacturing companies in this industry that produce outstanding projects, most specialize in a single product offering. Transitioning from something as simple as a portable classroom to a USACE multi-story Brigade / Battalion Headquarters building is not an easy chore. Seamlessly doing this year in and year out is a significant achievement and one that is often easy to overlook. For that reason, we felt a page devoted to our design capabilities was in order.

Ramtech Launches Upgrade to RamtechModular.com

Posted on: February 25th, 2016 by (No Comments)

RamtechModular.comRamtech has relaunched RamtechModular.com, our flagship corporate website which showcases our extensive facility solutions available to the education, healthcare, commercial, and government markets.  The redesigned website showcases several design changes which highlight Ramtech’s three versatile building systems. These include sections for relocatable modular buildings, permanent modular construction, and prefabricated building construction featuring our proprietary Accelerated Building System slab-on-grade building method.  Each type of building system can be used for new construction or for facility additions and expansions. Easy navigation through each of the sections provides specific pages that include informative details on how Ramtech constructs the three building types, the benefits (including sustainability) they provide, and the specific kinds of facilities that are available using each type of building system. The website has an updated photo gallery with downloadable case studies of prior projects, informational videos, and easier navigation to the wide range of standard and custom floor plans that we have available using each construction method. The new website also includes enhanced integration with our social media sites.  Ramtech used the same layout approach for our educational division website RamtechEducation.com and we have plans to incorporate the same design criteria onto our medical facility website, RamtechMedical.com which should be relaunched by the end of the second quarter of 2016.

Ramtech Provides Grant for Innovative Teaching Program thru MISD Education Foundation

Posted on: January 12th, 2016 by (No Comments)

At the end of last year Ramtech was proud to sponsor an Innovative Teaching Grant for the Mansfield Independent School District Education Foundation. The grant will support a program developed by a group of Mansfield ISD intermediate school librarians titled “Make Your Mark in Mansfield Intermediate Libraries: Inspire, Imagine, Investigate, Innovate.” The $4,500 grant will be used to purchase hardware, software, tools and equipment to support the intermediate school’s STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) programs. Specifically, the plan calls for developing a “Makerspace” area in the libraries of the district’s six intermediate school campuses where students can come together to investigate, collaborate, and create in a unique community section of each facility.  Individual projects will be guided by the school librarians through inquiry-style learning encouraging students to use a collaborative approach in order to build and create by making connections to what they have learned in the classroom and applying it to the real world.

For several years Ramtech and its employees have made personal and financial contributions to several local organizations and charities in the Mansfield area. Agencies such as Meals on Wheels, Special Olympics, Kiwanis, Habitat for Humanity, Mansfield Cares, and Common Ground are just a few of the outstanding organizations that Ramtech has had the privilege of working with.  Ramtech has been a corporate sponsor of the Mansfield ISD Education Foundation since its inception, and both Mike Slataper and Linc Moss have served on the foundation’s board of directors. More information on the MISDEF can be found on the foundation’s website at www.mansfieldisdfoundation.org.
