American Material Handling, Inc. completed this truck dock renovation by installing a full-size truck dock well, retaining wall, stairs and landing, overhead door, dock seal, and fully hydraulic dock leveler, and pedestrian door. What started out as an outdated low truck dock height well was transformed into a fully functional, state-of-the-art truck dock and door configuration.

Our truck dock and door services include the design and installation of all the components required to update your facility.

We can supply new and used dock levelers to meet your specific truck dock needs.

Ground Level Shelter

Problem: Unloading small Fed-X and UPS truck deliveries with numerous boxes required the grade level overhead door to be left open for long periods of time causing contamination problems at a nearby assembly station. Solution: install a vestibule outfitted with a custom ground level shelter in conjunction with a heated air curtain to seal off contamination as well as inclement weather.

Sidewalk Lift

American Material Handling Inc. Worked in conjunction with a local architect and general contractor to remove and replace an old sidewalk lift that had been Red Tagged by the state inspector as unsafe and , install a new updated unit for the city of East Lansing. The new equipment allowed the city to continue to access valuable basement space. Because these lifts are not designed to carry personal, they fall under the classification of vertical conveyor and no special permitting is needed. The units incorporate interlocks to and safety enclosures to insure that employees are protected at all times.

Truck Dock

American Material Handling Inc. completed this dock renovation on time and under budget. The project consisted of removing grade level door, increasing the truck well width by one position and installing a new dock leveler, dock shelter, and overhead door. All facets of this turnkey project were handled by American Material Handling staff, thus allowing the owner to concentrate on part production rather than building construction.

Merdian Case Study

A large automotive supplier located in the greater Lansing Michigan area need help in renovating their loading dock. Due to the design of the overhead doors that were being used they were being regularly damaged by fork truck traffic and limited the effectiveness of the loading dock area.

A row of garage doors with yellow posts.


American Material Handling supplied and installed high speed roll up doors. Because the new doors are made of a high strength alloy, they offered the benefit of both security and effective climate control. These high-speed overhead doors require much less head room space than conventional overhead door so no building modifications were required.
