Welcome to RAMP. We are a “Manufacturing Resource Group”, comprised of automation system integrators and custom machine builders who started our company to service and support manufacturers challenged with making automation more efficient and productive. As factory automation professionals we are often called on for our innovative approach to solving manufacturing or process problems and applying just the right amount of technology to solve a production problem.
Since our early beginnings, we have expanded to designing and building lean automation cells, automated assembly systems and custom special machines for customers across North America and Europe.
