A little bit of history about the VertiRack brand and VertiRack
VertiRack Manufacturing Co. was founded in 2007 after the
discovery of an overlooked segment of the ladder rack market. In
2006 we had the need for a vertically mounted ladder rack. A
vertical ladder rack that offered adjustability in ladder
placement, and the ability to carry any type of ladder on the
side of a vehicle. A rack that was easy to use, with positive
retention of the ladders being carried and the ability to secure
them against theft. A rack that would remain free of rust and
oxidation, while continuing to look “like new” for life, and if
removed would leave minimal evidence that it was ever mounted to
the vehicle. Necessity being the mother of invention; and after
a nine month exhaustive search of ladder rack manufactures,
truck up-fitters and the internet; we determined no such product
was available. Born was the VertiRack.
We have dedicated the last 7 years of our lives to making these
racks. We eat, sleep and
breathe racks. We invented the vertical ladder rack and since,
the vertical surfboard/paddleboard rack. We appreciate all the
other rack manufacturer’s products for
what they are, the niche they occupy and what they can do for
their users. We do not try to copy or reinvent anyone else’s
products to gain a share of their market segment. What we do is
identify areas of the market that have been ignored or
overlooked; and design products to fill these needs. This has
resulted in our truck & trailer roof mount ladder racks and
vehicle body roof access ladders. We are responsive to our
customers’ needs and desires; often developing new designs to
fit them, like our wall mount and freestanding vertical ladder
racks and our surfboard / stand up paddle board racks.
VertiRack has no competitors; there are no apples to apples
comparisons. As far as our racks are concerned, they were the
first, and are the only rack to do what they do, in the way that
they do it. VertiRack racks are the cutting edge design that all
others are copied from. Anything you might see out there that
resembles a VertiRack is just an imitation of the original.
An apples to onions comparison if you will.
All of our rack designs are unique. We put the care and
attention to detail into the design and construction of our
products that they and our customers deserve. We use the best
components money can buy. VertiRack products are made in the
USA, from components made in the USA, by American workers whose
goal is to deliver only the best possible product.
We believe if you can’t deliver a unique, well thought out, well
made product; one that delivers the best possible performance
and quality to your customers, then don’t bother.
We are not just the best at what we do; we're the ONLY ones who
do what we do.
