About Us

Rampit USA manufactures the most complete line of access ramps to meet any purpose in the industry. Rampit USA offers access ramps for residential, commercial, industrial, and recreational use. These products come in a variety of sizes and options, and all can be custom tailored to meet the specifications of any job.  Whether your need is large or small, commercial or residential, industrial or recreational we can RAMPIT! 

Rampit USA was founded in 1992 by the father and son team of Ted Short Sr. and Ted Short Jr. With Ted Sr. being a veteran himself the duo recognized the need for access for other veterans. Together over the course of 25 years the Shorts grew the company into a national supplier of custom made access ramps with dealers and installers throughout the country. The current business foundation and philosophy remains the same as it did when the Shorts founded the company, with product quality and customer service at the forefront of the company’s operations.

Today Rampit USA continues to be family owned and operated, although under new ownership. Presently, Rampit USA is classified as a small business, employing less than 50 people. The company continues to manufacture and distribute nationwide out of its headquarters located in Coldwater, Michigan. Currently, Rampit USA boasts over 200 years of combined ramp experience. It is this experience that separates Rampit USA from its competitors. Our well-developed team is comprised of experts in ADA codes, ramp evaluation, design, and installation. This dedicated and experienced team allows Rampit USA to continue to be an industry leader in accessibility.
