At first glance, you would think that adding an elevator to your home would be a significant expense that will set you back. An elevator seems like a luxury addition, and it certainly sets your home apart from the others on the market. Mobility is not a luxury; it’s a basic necessity.
At RAM Elevators & Lifts, we proudly provide clients with ultra-high-quality products at an affordable price because our company is fully integrated by handling all manufacturing, wholesale and retail ourselves.
RAM’s products are often as much as 85% more cost-effective than a traditional commercial elevator. The reason we can create affordable, luxurious and accessible products is that RAM has an integrated approach to business. Instead of outsourcing the labour, RAM performs the vast majority of manufacturing, wholesale and retail in-house. By reducing outsourcing costs and manufacturing locally sourced materials, we have retained the same high-quality product our customers know and expect at a significantly more affordable price.
During the peak of Covid, we learned that many competitors had their lead times significantly impacted because many of their components were being manufactured off-shore. So, we took manufacturing into our own hands because, at RAM, we believe in the importance of continuous innovation and technological advancement. Being a streamlined, efficient and forward-thinking company is what we consistently strive for.
Efficiency & Advanced Technology
In recent years, we have developed a new electrical centre of excellence by streamlining our production processes and consolidating the manufacturing into one area. As we grow, our internal focus is creating efficient, streamlined processes. These improvements have created an environment where employees are cross-trained, our systems are refined, and our clients get access to their products much faster.
To maintain these efficiencies, we have built two distribution centres: one in Edmonton and the other in Vancouver. All of our product is made in Canada, and the materials are sourced locally. By taking manufacturing into our own hands, our lead times have increased, which is essential because, in the business of accessibility, timeliness is vital.
For efficiency to be done well, there must be a minimal window for errors. Thankfully, we have invested in precision manufacturing. Where there is always room for error with humans, robots tend not to forget the small things like clamping a joint or missing a valve; this has sped up the manufacturing process significantly.
By leveraging technology and refining our processes, we have provided superior quality at a greater rate of return for our clients’ investment over time. At RAM, we have always understood the necessity of providing our customers with a simple design cost-effectively made with high-quality materials. We firmly believe that a person’s access to reliable and safe elevation products should not be hindered by something as simple as the cost.
RAM offers an array of reliable lift and elevator products across multiple price points. You can rest assured that RAM will have the product for you at a price that doesn’t break the bank.
Providing excellent customer service is a top priority for RAM. When you call our office, the phone rarely goes to voicemail because we understand the importance and urgency of acquiring accessibility systems in the home, like an elevator or wheelchair lift.
