Yardramps, dockboards and steel railboards are manufactured by Brazos Manufacturing and sold directly to our customers in Florida. Our customer service group work regularly with clients in Pensacola FL, Tampa FL, Jacksonville FL and Miami FL. We also work with rural companies who use our yard ramps to create portable and remote loading docks. Both ground to truck ramps and ground to dock ramps. Many times in costal cities hurricanes, floods and other emergencies will cause the need for off-site loading and unloading of supplies. Our ramps have been used by FEMA and other agencies to deliver much needed equipment and supplies in the Miami, Tampa and St Petersburg area.
Florida has the 4th largest economy or all states. Following tourism is agriculture, export-import, aerospace-aviation, health and financial services. With the exception of financial services much of the industry in Florida depends on moving goods around. It is in those areas that Brazos dock products and material handling products are key.
The designs on all Brazos Manufacturing loading dock products are tested using Finite Element Analysis (FEA)…a computerized testing of loading that mimics real world usage. Seen here. Real world testing is also done along with stringent quality control efforts. This assures you and us the loading dock product we build is worthy of our name.
All Brazos products are engineered and produced using equipment and technics representing the latest and highest standards. In this same plant we produce pressurized vessels. The methods and standards to meet are higher than any other shop building loading dock equipment. A discussion of our quality measures is here.
One of the many reasons we pride ourselves in the quality of our products is that the environment our dockboards and yardramps are placed in is sometimes potentially dangerous. Heavy equipment rolling across our ramps loaded with many thousand pounds of materials in close proximity to people is no place for inferior equipment. Here is a discussion on ramp safety.
Yard ramps are used in many areas where shipping containers are opened and loaded and unloaded. Port cities like Miami FL, Jacksonville FL provide such services and employ dock products from Brazos.
