A graphical tagline that says Technology for A graphical tagline that says Stronger, Safer Solutions

Our Passion

Ross was formed in 1962 by Donald E. Speicher out of a passion for fabricating metal and a knack for developing creative technologies that challenge the status quo and advance product design. These founding principles have guided Ross extremely well for over 5 decades and remain at the core of what drives the company going forward.

Our Purpose

Ross is a group of dedicated individuals, who like their founder, have a commitment to precision, desire to innovate and a stubborn belief in conducting business with integrity. We are engineers and project managers. We are skilled tradesman, subject matter experts and support staff. We are many people working together to build stronger, safer environments.

Our Products

As a Veteran Owned Small Business, Ross manufactures FE/BR & Blast Fenestration Products, Anti-Ram Vehicle Barriers, Structural Steel I-Beam Racking Systems, Slip-Resistant Metal Flooring and Infrastructure Access Solutions. Operating out of 250,000 square feet of production space in Lancaster County PA, we serve worldwide markets from Kazakhstan to Cameroon, Moscow to London, New York to LA. We are everywhere it matters.

Our Pledge

Because our products are entrusted to preserve what matters to you, our commitment to quality is unwavering. ISO 9001:2008 certified, Ross adheres to the world’s most exacting standards for total quality manufacturing. We continually work on improving our processes and utilizing technologically advanced equipment to ensure consistency.

Reducing Risk and Raising Confidence

We protect essential raw materials, costly manufacturing equipment, valuable end products and the people who handle them. We safeguard mission critical buildings and US citizens on foreign soil. We secure critical infrastructure to ensure vital resources like electricity, water, oil and gas remain available. We establish safe environments for people to travel, shop, eat and work in.

Innovating World Class Products

Progressive thinking, along with a focus on producing highly robust products, has earned Ross the reputation of being an industry leader. Ross specializes in designing and manufacturing products that are engineered, tested and certified to meet the highest industry standards for safety and reliability within their respective fields.

Building Relationships

With over five decades of experience, we understand your business and have the knowledge to guide you through every project. And because your time is valuable, we don’t employ high-pressure salespeople, only skilled product specialists focused on meeting your technical requirements. We believe this approach facilitates long-term and mutually beneficial relationships.

Supporting the Design and Construction Community

Ross works alongside architects and engineers early in the design phase to provide vital support in the development of comprehensive specifications, drawings and designs that meet the latest industry testing standards, integrate with adjacent construction materials and satisfy targets for creativity and sustainability. We also play an active role in assisting contractors throughout the submittal, installation and key-turnover phases.
