Stoneway Roofing Supply

Stoneway Roofing Supply has been in operation since 1924. Contractors and homeowners throughout Western Washington have relied on them for superior roofing products and related building materials. Stoneway Roofing Supply offers roofing materials and accessories from a wide array of manufacturers from asphalt composition shingles and metal roofing to wood shakes and slate..

Their existing distribution facility in Tacoma, Washington needed ground to dock access. They wanted to add the ability for their heavy duty forklifts to access their yard space for loading and unloading roofing materials. They wanted to add a ramp to a 14’ dock grade doorway to create improved access and better utilize their yard space. Together with Stoneway Roofing Supply, Nation Ramps designed a two section, 30,000 lbs (GVW) ground to dock ramp with a custom 34 foot length that met all of their demands to win the contract. Once the contract was awarded the ramp needed to be designed, manufactured, delivered and installed to their Tacoma, Washington location.

The solution was a Nation Ramps heavy duty 14-foot wide, two section ground to dock ramp that incorporated added 34-foot length to create a reduced grade. Having worked with many construction supply and materials handling businesses, we understood the required deliverables.

Prior to beginning the manufacturing process, our engineering team produced drawings for discussion and approval. Once the management team and staff were satisfied and signed off on the design, we engineered, manufactured, delivered and installed the heavy duty ramp in their Tacoma, Washington location within an 8 week delivery window.
