For over 35 years the name “Ravens” was synonymous with the “Worlds largest producer of aluminum flatbed and dump trailers.” In 1977 the company took advantage of its image for quality and dependability by expanding into the marine construction industry fabricating aluminum docks, gangways, bulkheads and other aluminum specialty products.
The response was so overwhelming, Ravens decided in 1985 to open a new division called Ravens Marine. The Kissimmee, Florida plant took over 100% of all manufacturing requirements for the marine industry. Ravens now could focus on providing its customers around the world quality marine products 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
In 1990, David Hill along with the other Ravens employees privately purchased Ravens Marine. David then began to buy out the other employees’ shares until he and his wife Barbara were the sole owners of Ravens Marine.
David and Barbara Hill were a perfect fit for Ravens Marine. Each year Ravens Marine continued to grow and increase its reputation for quality marine products. Today the company custom manufactures solutions for customers across the globe.
Floating docks are needed where large water fluctuations make access to boats a difficult task. Ravens Marine understands that solutions must be custom designed for each customer. Marginal walkways usually are 8 to 10 feet wide; main walkways are designed 6 to 8 feet wide with 5 feet being minimum; finger docks will normally be 3 to 4 feet wide.
Every dock is custom made to your specifications or we can design a dock system according to site elements. Ravens floating docks come with a variety of decking. If you like the look of wood, we can make the exterior covered with wood but keep the internal components aluminum. The variety for a floating dock is only limited by your imagination.
Strong, versatile, low-maintenance – that’s the Mariner gangway from Ravens. We put our 30 years of aluminum manufacturing and engineering skill into every project. These gangways feature a lateral decking design for greater skid resistance and extruded pipe sized for added structural strength with less weight and clean lines.
Ravens first adjustable gangway was ordered by the US Navy 20 years ago. Since then we have built over 200 for the Navy and the US Coast Guard. Their application is not limited to government agencies as we have manufactured them for the average homeowner when conditions do not allow a standard gangway to be used.
What makes the adjustable step gangway special is the feathering steps that allow them to stay level at low or high tide. They are ideal when the angle is too great for a flat gangway to be used.
The adjustable step gangway is still fabricated with aluminum to keep the weight manageable and the cost realistic. We can help you determine if an adjustable step gangway is right for you so call now!
