History of Ramco Innovations
Tom and Marj Ramsey founded Ramco Company on June 1, 1962. During the first year of business, Ramco operated from within the walls of the Ramsey's home on the west side of Des Moines, IA. As the business grew, more office and storage space was required, so the Ramseys found what would become Ramco's location for several years in a nearby strip mall. During the early years, Tom handled the sales and engineering role, while Marj handled the business and accounting aspects of the company.
In 1967, the Ramseys purchased land in the West Des Moines Valley Junction area and built the original building, today's main office, at 1207 Maple Street. As the original 8,000 sq/ft building was quickly outgrown, additions and future buildings sprung up, eventually creating the 21,000 sq/ft. of office, shop and warehouse space that still stands today.
In 1983, Ramco Company became incorporated and the name changed to Ramco Electric Company, Inc. This marked the beginning of the Ramsey's vision that Ramco be an Employee-Owned Company – which is still in place today.
As Ramco's market, products and industries transformed with the times, the name eventually became Ramco Innovations, Inc. in 2002. Since starting out as an electrical distributor 50 years ago, Ramco has experienced vast change and growth.
