    About Us

    Our Story

    Ram Electronics, Inc. was originally incorporated as R. A. Miller Electronics Corporation. Established in 1970, the company's first products were antenna matching networks and magnetic compasses.

    In 1979, the name was changed to Ram Electronics and the business was expanded into the production of printed circuit board assembles and electronic modules. Through the eighties, Ram's business grew, supplying electronics to the U.S. Government. Ram produced electronic assemblies and modules for various military radios and communication systems, data processing, control systems, electronic sensing and indicating apparatus. Ram Electronics grew to a 60 employee company in less than three years and was rewarded with the Small Business Administrator's Award of Excellence in 1988.

    At the turn of the decade in 1990, Ram reached a cross roads, with rapidly evaporating military contracts. It was decided Ram would shift the majority of it's efforts to commercial electronics, designing and manufacturing products with the same technical expertise that was utilized for the military. As with any major cultural shift, the transition was not painless, having to lay off employees and institute drastic down-sizing.

    In 1994, Ram emerged a survivor, successfully making the transition to a commercial electronics design and manufacturing facility. Our new customer base includes Brunswick Corporation, Deutsch Industrial Products, Electro-Matic, Diebold Inc., Whirlpool Corporation, Grand Haven Stamped Products (GHSP), Dura Automotive Products, Eaton Hydraulics, and others.

    Our Future

    Ram Electronics is poised to move forward in these changing times. Ram has in place a quality system in ISO 9001:2008 that keeps our processes and procedures recognized by our customers and potential customers as having value and exemplifying high quality. Recent upgrades to equipment and integral systems will leave Ram in a position to have open capacity that can be quickly utilized by a potential customer. We need to continually open doors that will set us apart from our competition.

    Ram Electronics is committed to serving the Electronics Manufacturing Market (EMS) by providing value in design and optimizing cost in the manufacturing processes. We assure our future and current customers that we will advance with technology and incorporate the latest design and manufacturing processes into your products. We will maintain our quality metrics, continuously improving on our processes, whiling delivering your product on time. We aim for your success in your products by exceeding your expectations.
