Morton Manufacturing has been in business since 1903 and over the past century it has become a leading supplier of slip-resistant walking surfaces for the rail industry and industrial market.
The Libertyville, Ill.- based company’s walking surfaces exceed all federal specifications for slip resistance. Customers can choose from a selection of ready-made steel and aluminum safety grating channels, sheets, steps, ladder rungs and walkway products. Morton started by manufacturing running boards for boxcars for the railroad industry and in the 1950s it patented its Open-Grip® pattern. “What still sets us apart in the railroad industry is that we provide slip-resistant safety grating running boards that are user-friendly, lightweight and designed to fit customers’ specifications,” Vice President of Sales Mike Hendricks says.
