Who is behind it all at Kern Gate Systems?

Kern Gate Systems is a family run small business that was established in 2008 by Miguel A. Ramirez. At that time Miguel worked for his father, Andres Ramirez, owner and operator of JMAS Custom Welding. He learned to weld, fabricate and install wrought iron doors, gates and fencing. With being in the fencing field, he was introduced to gate operators and access controlled devices. He was very intrigued with these systems and began to learn how to install an assortment of operators and other gate accessories. While mostly self-taught, he was motivated and started taking classes to expand his knowledge and become a certified technician. With his new skills and confidence in himself and the support and guidance of his father, Miguel started his own business- Ramirez Automatic Gate Systems. He has since then grown his company with his wife Amalia G. Ramirez and now are better known as Kern Gate Systems. Together they make a living for themselves and their four young children, serving Kern County one gate operator at a time. They strive to provide customer satisfaction with quality workmanship at reasonable pricing. Security is important to the Ramirez family and strives the same for their customers.
