Industry Leadership & Innovation = Proven Quality

Holden America products are in daily service on literally every major freight railroad in North America. Our brand is well known for best in class quality products and outstanding post-sale service and support earning us an established reputation for being a trusted business partner for the railroad industry.

Founded in 1909, we have a long-standing position as industry leaders offering high performance, multi-level vehicle securement and protection systems, gravity-outlet gates and gate accessories. In 2015 Holden America and Ramptech Inc. merged bringing two entities with excellent reputations and experience in autorack vehicle securement together. Ramptech Inc’s superior after market sales and service will allow Holden America to provide comprehensive customer service and support, delivering a total supply solution that includes superior aftermarket maintenance and support.

Our goal is to keep as many autoracks in service as possible, using the well-established system we are known for.
