The Story of Ramco Supply
It's tough to be profitable in the construction business if you have to wait on materials.
Ramco has developed a unique system that allows you to pick up custom length metal roofing and siding the same day or have us unload it on site in 48 hours -- you save money, completing your project more quickly and easily with less damage!
Our daily work is a
sacred, spiritual act.
In 1997, founder and owner, Marvin Ramer, began building post frame buildings in the Rochester IN, and surrounding areas. He soon became dissatisfied with the long lead times on metal roofing and siding in the area. After having to wait as long as several weeks on metal packages, he began to research the possibilities of buying directly from a national manufacturer.
In 2000, he built a 40x60 pole building, and started retailing metal roofing & siding, buying from several different national companies. In 2001, another 40x60 was added on to the first building, giving more room to stock some standard trims. In 2003, a 10’ computerized trim folder and a 10’ shear were added, allowing Ramco Supply to manufacture most of our trims in house, giving us the added flexibility of manufacturing custom trims on demand.
In 2004 a 60x120 building was added, adjoining the original building, to house a MRS roll forming line. This allowed Ramco Supply to better meet our customer’s needs by providing faster lead times and gave us better quality control. A larger trim shop was added in 2007 housing a 21’ CNC metal brake, along with several trim roll formers allowing us to increase the amount of stock trim.
In 2009, a 20 acre industrial zoned property was purchased. Pictured above is our new state-of-the-art facility at this location. As of February 2012 we are completing our fourth building, which will give Ramco added lumber capacity. The expanded manufacturing, warehouse, office, and showroom, will help us to continue meeting the needs of our customers. We will be able to stock larger quantities of trim, and provide the kind of service, and quick turn around, you have come to expect from us. In order to meet the increased demand for R Panel, a second roll forming line was added in early 2010, along with a second 21’ CNC metal brake.
In 2013 we were able to purchase a 10 acre lot in an industrial park in Woodburn Indiana. A new 60x120 post frame facility was erected during the summer 2014, opening for business late the same year. This second location houses a MRS roll forming line and a 21’ CNC metal brake, as well as a large amount of stock trims and accessories.
Between our two locations we are ideally suited to serve all of your post frame building and metal roofing needs. We now have most lumber, windows, walk doors, and many accessories in stock to put together a post frame package.
