The history of Kelley Atlantic is uncertain. It is surmised that former employees of Kelley left and started their own company and their own line of dock equipment. This would explain why many of the Kelley parts fit the Kelley Atlantic dock levelers. It's not unusual for new start ups to build on the name of other, more established companies. After a time the company was unable to sustain itself financially and the assets appear to have been assumed by Kelley Manufacturing. Kelly Atlantic dock leveler parts are still available through Kelley and after market suppliers who manufacture OEM equivalent replacement parts.
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING LOCAL PICKUPS: DDM is considered a life-sustaining company because we are an internet retail company that provides essential products. Due to the recent outbreak of Coronavirus, however, we are changing our local order pickup policy at our West Chicago location. To pick up an order you will need to order first. The quickest way is to order in advance through our online shopping cart. There you can select the local pickup option. Or, you can call 630-293-1337 for assistance, to confirm availability of parts, and to place your order. Once ordered, your parts will be available for pickup in the lobby of our north side front entrance. Longer items will be picked up on the south side loading dock. Please honor the six foot social distancing rule. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all navigate this challenge together. More information is available on our blog titled DDM Adjusts to the COVID-19 Coronavirus.
