Our ancestral roots began back in 1876 as Ed Mills & Son, a blacksmith company in Liverpool, England. A thriving maritime city, which played a pivotal role in the development of the business.
During the 1970’s and after many decades of success, the then Director of Ed Mills & Son, Robert A. Mills further diversified the company interests into container handling equipment, and soon after created the RAM Spreaders brand known today.
Robert worked tirelessly in growing the business successfully, promoting RAM as a brand symbolising strength, power, and reliability; the core values that we instil to this day.
From the early 1990s, our company (then known as NSL Engineering) firmly established the RAM Spreaders in the container handling industry. With clever strategic market penetration & innovation, our business continued to grow with spreaders seen at ports and terminals worldwide.
