Thank you

Thank you for visiting our website.

After almost 120 years in business, our company has ceased operations and permanently closed our doors. The company was significantly affected by the circumstances surrounding COVID-19. The economic shutdowns and subsequent supply chain issues created a very challenging business environment that ultimately made it impossible for Michigan Ladder to continue in business.

Founded in 1901, Michigan Ladder Company had a long and storied history. As we think back on our history, we have fond memories of the friendships formed with our customers and suppliers. In many cases, we were doing business with a company’s second- or third-generation owners.

Our warmest memories are reserved for our employees. Over the years we have had many wonderful and interesting people pass through our doors. Each one of them will be missed!

Over the course of our history, we employed thousands of people and made millions of ladders that were shipped all over the world. This was accomplished with the support and cooperation of our employees, customers, and suppliers.

Sadly, that story has come to an end…

Feel free to read through our history on this website and reminisce.

In the meantime, our most heartfelt thanks to all our employees, customers, and suppliers, for the many years of memories.
