Cy Gasses of Complete Truck Bodies, Inc. recently commented, “We offer Magline ramps in our product line and sell by customer request as well. Lead time is typically not an issue with Magliner. There is more demand for walk ramps than in recent years and expect that trend to continue through this year. I would attribute the increase in demand to a tighter economy that forces money-saving efforts from the buyers. Injury reduction that reduces worker’s compensation claims is possibly driving more buyers to install loading devices.”
