To build stronger, simpler, and more aesthetically pleasing dock systems and dock hardware for commercial and residential applications. We strive for innovative manufacturing techniques to give our customers a unique and superior product for a better price. We build everything with the attitude of letting our product speak for itself.


Valley Manufacturing Inc., a fabrication company that has been doing business since 1963, was the sole metal fabricator for Follansbee Dock Systems since 1999 and had previously been producing dock hardware for another major marine business for four years. All truss frames, truss hardware, wood dock hardware, pile/pipe holders, Mr. Lifter jet ski lift’s, and all specialty fabricated metal parts were manufactured under Valley’s facility, only five miles from Follansbee’s location.

In addition to marine manufacturing, Valley Manufacturing was also doing work for companies such as RCA, Zinc Corporation, WKW Industrial Services, Weirton Steel, Wheeling Steel, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Berwick Nuclear Powerhouse, and many more.

On January 12, 2012, the owners of Follansbee Dock Systems announced their intent to sell the business. Almost immediately following the announcement, Valley Manufacturing made an offer to purchase Follansbee Dock Systems. After a couple of months the deal was finalized, and Follansbee Dock Systems began operating as American Muscle Docks & Fabrication® in a new 20,000 sq. ft. facility.

Customers can expect from American Muscle Docks® the same great products provided by Follansbee Dock Systems™, the extraordinary marine industry experience of Valley Manufacturing, and an excitement within the business to create new and innovative products.

JEFF    New England Marine
“ Vermont Docks LLC has been using American Muscle Docks steel frames for several years and find the quality plus dimensions very dependable. The variety of sizes and shapes allows us to provide clever solutions for our client's request. The strength of the frames gives us confidence that our clients will not be disappointed. Their service is fast, and this makes it easy to make a profit in our short season. ”
FRANK    Americo, Inc.
“ Allow me to extend my gratitude and recognize American Muscle Docks for the outstanding work the company did in the construction of our dock. The work was meticulous, efficient, and affordable. The quality of the work was outstanding. It was an absolutely enjoyable experience to associate with the employees. ”
DAVID    Atlanta Water Ski Club
“ By using the heavy duty hardware, I was able to virtually eliminate the twisting of the fingers and to stiffen them against the impacts from the not-so-good boat drivers mooring at the dock. The consistency of the hole spacing and fabrications allowed me to accurately predrill and preassemble the frames. I could not have asked for a better product. We very much appreciate the efforts of the good folks at American Muscle Docks! ”
 HOWARD G.    Florida Keys 2017
“ As you know, we were hit by Hurricane Irma in Sept and were fortunate to sustain only minor damage in comparison to some nearby Keys which sustained major damage from wind and flooding. Personally, we lost one of our older dock systems totally that we are still in need of replacing. Nice to report that both of our docks built by American Muscle Docks stood up well with only very minor damage, mainly from neighbor docks breaking free and crashing into ours! ”
