Our History

National Ladder & Scaffold Co. is a fourth generation, family owned and operated business. Founded in 1935, as American Ladder, the company has grown tremendously. From manufacturing wood straight and extension ladders in Detroit, to developing a company that has the ability to serve small and large accounts with skill and efficiency. We have two locations in Michigan (Madison Heights, Grand Rapids), designed to maximize availability for customers worldwide. Learn more about our history.

Our People

Our company has spanned four generations through an actively involved ownership. Over 80 years, we have developed an experienced staff including a driven management team, four dedicated account executives, a twenty member plus sales team and a creative web/marketing department. Together we have over 250 years of combined industry experience! We take pride in everything we do at National Ladder & Scaffold Co.

Our Dedication to Customers

We strive to provide the best possible experience for our customers while delivering value and top-quality products. One of the ways we’ve done this recently is by remodeling our showroom and adding a larger sales counter to increase workflow and enhance the customer’s experience. Our website also evolves daily, making sure we’re providing the current information in the most logical way. Our goal is to make it easier for you to find the equipment you need to get your job done.
