Bio
Amramp's beginnings go back to 1970 and a small producer of architectural metal items-- such as stairs, rails, fire doors and security products-- used by contractors and architects. In 1998, the company patented a modular ramp system that became the focus of their business-- and later, their franchise program. In addition to renting and selling wheelchair ramps, Amramp franchisees offer other accessibility solutions such as lifts, automatic door openers and grab bars.
