Although we are located in Pampa, Texas, the Deckmate Ladder is manufactured in Ontario Canada where it was developed by Richard & Brenda Ricker. Richards’s brother-in-law slipped and fell off his trailer one day while working, costing him several months without work. With this as his inspiration, the Deckmate Ladder was invented to prevent this from happening to other drivers.
