POY Finalist: Mobile ramp unit
Finalist in Material Handling Systems in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
The Impactable Yard Ramp is a cost-effective way to add a safe, adjustable, yet stable loading dock. Designed for trailer impact, the Impactable Yard Ramp provides companies with a flexible, yet fixed loading dock option to facilitate forklift traffic from the ground up into a truck bed.
Because of its flexibility, this product is optimized for adding loading docks to grade-level buildings, and seasonal and leased facilities. Supporting the ramp via adjustable legs significantly reduces the chance of the ramp coming disengaged.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
