Last week Ramtech returned as an exhibitor to the National Rural Health Association’s 45th annual Rural Health Conference which was held at the Albuquerque Convention Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Ramtech, and our relocatable building and permanent modular construction capabilities, were represented by our healthcare sales specialist Jade Pulfer, who debuted one of our new retractable BannerStands at the exhibition. Produced as a set of three stands by The Trade Group, the new BannerStands provide Ramtech with the flexibility of using them in a combination of one or two panels integrated into our existing trade show booths, or as a set to produce a convenient standalone backdrop.
Ramtech recently made a significant addition to our engineering and design department by welcoming on board industry veteran Todd Alexander to serve as our Structural Engineer. Todd brings to Ramtech a broad background in structural design in the development of pre-engineered projects for a wide variety of industrial and commercial applications. His previous work experience also includes the successful management and leadership of a diverse range of engineering and design groups. (more…)

Governor Greg Abbot Reappoints Ramtech’s Roland Brown to the Texas Industrialized Building Code Council
The office of Governor Greg Abbott has announced the reappointment of Ramtech’s Roland Brown to another term on the Texas Industrialized Building Code Council. Roland is one of twelve new and existing member appointments made by Governor Abbot to the 12 member council. Originally appointed by former Governor Rick Perry in October of 2010, Roland will continue to serve as the Presiding Officer of the council which functions as an advisory board for the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation on issues related to the regulation of the industrialized housing and commercial modular building industries.
Roland has long served as Ramtech’s Vice President of Design and Development, overseeing the architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and civil designs for the relocatable and permanent modular building projects that we develop across multiple industries and uses. He also previously served as the Government Affairs Chairman and President of the Board of Directors of the Modular Building Institute, the international nonprofit trade association that serves the commercial modular construction industry. Roland is a member of the International Code Council where he has been an active advocate for addressing code and compliance issues that affect the commercial modular building industry.
Roland began his career in the modular industry in 1981, and since that time has developed a long track record of creating innovative and unique structural designs which have made significant contributions to the technical evolution of the commercial modular industry. These innovations include Ramtech’s award winning slab-on-grade permanent modular construction process, a grade level approach which allows for modular building sections to be set and attached directly onto a conventional concrete slab foundation.
