HISTORY OF RAM

Ask an expert.

RAM Motors & Controls began in 1947 in Reading, Pennsylvania as Reliable Electric. Reliable Electric sold and serviced motors, variable speed drives, and electromechanical controls to various industries, in particular the textile industry. In 1969, John Walton and his son David purchased the company and introduced its basic operating philosophy: a strong commitment to customer service with 100% customer satisfaction as its objective.

The new customer service philosophy proved successful and in 1983, Reliable Electric merged with Multilectric, Inc., adding its apparatus repair shops in Lancaster and York and giving rise to a new company name, RAM (Reliable And Multilectric) Motors & Controls, Inc. In 2000, the distribution and service division of RAM was purchased by Jeff Musser and Bill Wissler, creating RAM Industrial Services, Inc. W.M. Wagner Sales Company, a pump specialty house, was acquired to expand its product offerings as well as its geographic footprint. In 2013, the company was acquired, by a private equity group to become RAM Industrial Services, LLC and became part of the Industrial Service Solutions, LLC (ISS) family of industrial and municipal service companies. Pennsylvania Electric Motor Service, a large apparatus repair shop located in Erie, Pennsylvania, was acquired by ISS in 2012 and merged into the RAM group in late 2014. This merger created a more comprehensive infrastructure with expanded geographic coverage to better serve the needs of our growing customer base.

Today, RAM has five locations to serve you including Camp Hill, Leesport, Pittsburgh, Carrolltown and Erie Pennsylvania.

Through all this growth and expansion, our objective has always remained the same – to provide excellent customer service for products, repairs and field service. By focusing our efforts on these areas, we can continue to grow and look ahead to a successful future.
