The founding partners at Ram Products started with a simple concept. Stock quality repair and maintenance parts on a truck available for immediate delivery and give the customer an honest, reliable sales representative that considered service a real privilege. The first part of the concept was not new but the second part was very rare in the industry.
So in 1988, with 3 vans stocked full of parts, Gene Ashlock, Jay Thompson, and Preston Taylor began serving customers in the Dallas / Fort Worth area and Ram Products was off and running.
They will tell you that Ram Products was started with a sincere prayer for guidance and a lot of hard work. Their desire was to create a company where employees would be valued and where servicing customers would be the top priority. They wanted their company to be different – where honesty, integrity and service would set them apart from the competition. Since the beginning, the vision and mission has been about serving others.
Not only did God answer their initial prayer for guidance, He has continued to guide and bless Ram Products with quality people and opportunities to serve. Since 1988, Ram Products has grown well beyond the Dallas / Fort Worth market, with territories throughout the South & Southwestern United States. Still privately held and headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, the current partners of Ram Products remain actively involved in the daily management of the business. However, it’s a dedicated management team that works with humility and a heart for service that makes the Leadership Team complete. This unique team approach insures the best interests of the customers and employees remain the highest priority.
As plans for the future are made, the founding values and principles of Ram Products will stay the same. We can say with confidence that the future is bright because of the strong foundation & heritage of the past – Serving people, serving the marketplace.
