Roll-A-Ramp® :World changing innovation, from North Dakota

Roll-A-Ramp® is an American owned company founded in 1999 as DT&J Inc. We are headquartered in lovely West Fargo, North Dakota.  From the very beginning, Roll-A-Ramp® has been all about solving problems. Donald J. Schmaltz had an idea for a portable, lightweight ramp that would make people’s lives easier and safer.  With grant support from the Center for Innovation at the University of North Dakota and additional investments from local businessmen Thomas E. Kenville and Dr. Joseph Stanislao, Schmaltz created a prototype based on feedback from a market survey. The product was then developed and was ready for market in 2001. Roll-A-Ramp® was purchased by Matt Magness in 2016 who now leads the ownership team, which includes Kathy Magness and Tim Capouch.

Roll-A-Ramp® is proudly a product of North Dakota.  The story of Roll-A-Ramp® is tied to hard work and American ingenuity – two values central to North Dakota and the spirit of pioneers, entrepreneurs, and inventors.

Roll-A-Ramp® has now sold over 5,000 ramps for industrial and home use. We are proud to say our ramps have been used at notable high profile locations such as Buckingham Palace. However, we are equally proud that we have helped thousands of people become more mobile, and work more efficiently worldwide and in over 50 countries. Roll-A-Ramp® is still dedicated to solving problems and making people’s lives and work easier.
