The History of Goldline International, LLC

Goldline International logo

Goldline International, Inc. was founded in 1973 due to a need in the petrochemical industry to solve safety problems for personnel accessing: Tank Trucks, Rail Tank Cars and Barges.

In those days, before OSHA, our equipment was designed and manufactured according to ANSI, AWS and petrochemical industry standards. Personnel safety has always been the main issue and still is today. When OSHA was instituted and began to influence safety, Goldline International had to make very few change in our loading rack and "Safe-walk" designs because OSHA is based primarily on ANSI. We were the first in our industry to furnish products that conformed to OSHA's standards. Goldline was and still is the leader in our industry. We were the first manufacturer to put safety cages on our "Safe-walk" Units and Grab Rails on our Canopy Racks, even before OSHA required these additional safety devices.

Goldline's basic philosophy is - and always has been to furnish its customers with the best equipment that is required for a safe job performance. We have always manufactured equipment to solve safety problems. Most of the basic access safety equipment that is common now was first designed by Goldline. Our concept of designing has always been to first solve the safety problem, making certain the product will do the job safely and then quote the project. From the beginning, we decided to design and manufacture the best access safety products in our industry, and we have, since 1973.

For example, the patented, modular "Fast-Erect" bolt together Loading Rack System was designed to provide a safe, fast system for field erection that would allow the customer to control the field erection time and cost safely. This "Fast-Erect" System allows a client to estimate the assembly cost more accurately and assembly time is shorter. This saves time and therefore hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Because of the modular design, Loading Rack expansion is very quick and simple.

Goldline's Loading Rack System includes a complete package including:

  1. Design
  2. "Fast-Erect" Loading Rack Structural Components
  3. "Fast-Erect" Loading Rack Canopy Components
