Charging Forward

For over four decades, The RAM Companies has set the standard for excellence in the acquisition, development and management of high-quality real estate assets. RAM's extensive portfolio has included Class-A office complexes, large industrial facilities, retail centers, and luxury condominium communities, as well as many historic properties.

From its beginnings, The RAM Companies set itself apart from the crowd, with vision, creativity and a pioneering spirit. The company got its start in the early 1970s, when founder Howard A. Goldenfarb began acquiring properties in the Old Port Exchange district of Portland, Maine. RAM’s historic renovation of more than 20 buildings in this area is widely credited for the city’s revitalization.

The firm is also recognized as a visionary in retail development. In 1983, when RAM developed the Maine Outlet, a purpose built factory outlet center, it was the first outlet center in Maine, and among the first 20 in the country. In the decades to follow, RAM would expand its portfolio to include residential communities, retail centers, and office and industrial facilities throughout New England and South Florida. RAM’s scope has become global, with ground-breaking commercial developments in the United States, England, Israel and Belgium.
