CEO & Managing Partner
With over 40 years of entrepreneurial and corporate experience, I founded North American Ramps LLC, because there was a definitive need for a ramp system, that would provide a platform for unparalleled safety, ease-of-use, superior functionality, and be tough enough to stand up to the every day challenges of commercial business.
We spent almost three years test-marketing our ramp system traveling to multiple states. We showcased our new ramp system to more than 100 prospective customers, including automotive dealerships, commercial business owners, fleet management companies, up-fitters, and several national accounts. The results were overwhelmingly positive!
With that said, I am excited to be a part of North American Ramps with expectations to deliver a superior product line to the marketplace. I have assembled an excellent leadership team that comprises a wide array of experience including, engineering, sales, marketing, finance and strategic planning.
I believe we have something special here, and I have partnered with people whom I know, can, and will make a difference to your company and ours.
We look forward to the opportunity to serve you and forge relationships that create value and trust... and by all means, Check Out Our Ramps!

Daniel C. Burns
After attending college, I began my career in finance with a Wall Street investment company in NYC. Eventually, I began to follow my true passion and transitioned to the aviation industry where I spent the next 26 years as a Pilot, Engineer, Check Airman, and Instructor Pilot.
Concurrent with my airline career, I have been involved in several entrepreneurial enterprises in the capacity of venture capital, new business development, marketing and sales management.
I’m very excited at the prospect of growing North American Ramps around this industry-leading proprietary ramp system, as well as being involved with the talented, experienced and dynamic group of partners engaged in this venture. Specifically, I look forward to working with and developing the up-fitter and distributor relationships throughout the country as I believe our product can and will become a staple commodity for a host of commercial business applications.
Our ramp systems are truly unique, and meet the criteria for safety, functionality and efficiency, and that’s something that every customer wants and needs.

After spending a summer working on circuit boards and repairing tv’s as a kid, I was hooked on making things work and perform better. Since that time, I’ve immersed myself in learning all that I could about design, functionality, and fabrication regarding product development.
After school, I began working in a local shop designing and building custom bodies for utility vehicles. There, I became a certified welder and gained invaluable experience learning the basics about fabrication and design. With this experience, I was hired by a Fortune 500 company to join a team of fabrication and design specialists where my skills were further developed and honed. I was able to embrace and learn the engineering side of the business and as well, became proficient in CAD design and product development. After eight years with the company, I decided to start my own company and even gained my former company as a customer!
When I was asked to be the Lead Fabricator and Product Design Director for North American Ramps, it only took a few minutes to make the decision. I am excited to be a part of this company and look forward to designing and engineering ramp systems that truly make a difference in the workplace. If you have an idea, run it by me. Let’s make things even better.
