The History of RAM: Two Brothers Create an Empire

Screen Shot 2016-08-26 at 11.26.14 AM

In 2010, Barry and Michael Roman co-founded RAM, or Reliant Asset Management, LLC. RAM’s primary focus is to provide capital to purchase and refurbish re-locatable or permanent modular buildings.

The Roman brothers have over 30 years of experience in modular building, having previously co-founded Resun Leasing, Inc. – now known as ModSpace Corporation. They also have strong backgrounds in finance and leasing with their work with companies such as Deloitte and Touch and the Bank of Boston. From conception to realization, these two brothers know what it takes to create an industry specific financing company.

RAM has since expanded to meet customer demand; acquiring Texas based Ameri-Tech and Class Leasing, Inc. propelling them into advanced modular systems building and modular solutions for the educational market.

With revenue increasing from $185,000 in 2010 to over $85 million in 2013, Inc. Magazine ranked them #3 on the 2014 Inc.5000, an annual list of fastest growing private companies in the United States.
Today RAM builds, acquires, and leases commercial modular buildings in the office, educational, medical, and workforce housing industries across 43 states and Canada.

Efficient Building and the Future of 3D Printing

3D printing. Though the technology is still in its infancy, it’s still hard not to be amazed at its capabilities- and builders and investors alike are now dreaming of how 3D printing can cut time and costs on their projects.

Of course, Advanced Modular Space knows a thing or two about efficient building processes- after all, we pride ourselves on our modular building inventory. Building modular means that we fabricate structures in a factory, with precise, assembly-line style production, bypassing all of the additional costs and setbacks that can be involved with traditional construction. Modular buildings are often much more sturdy than traditionally constructed buildings, and buying or leasing one can be done at fractions of the price.

So, when it comes to emerging technologies like 3D printing, Advanced Modular Space keeps close tabs. After all- who wouldn’t like to cut down on costs and time? Unfortunately, the technology is not so sufficiently advanced that it would be profitable (or even feasible) for us to utilize it effectively. 3D printers can only print in a small pool of materials- resins, plastics, and ceramics, and some metals- not enough to cover all of the materials needed for one of our high quality modular buildings. Could you imagine a 3D printer the size of a factory, though, printing out fully functional buildings, ready to be shipped? This technology is right around the corner, and Advanced Modular Space is always keeping an eye on competitive advantages. Food for thought!
