Access Elevator delivers highly functioning stair lifts and home elevators to customers throughout Erie, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Rochester and Buffalo. Like all things Access, our story is unique. There is little that is traditional about Access Elevator and Lift, save for the fact that it was born out of a great idea – an idea that has remained the core focus of every decision, innovation and customer product that has followed. Access Elevator and Lift is owned, collectively, by a group of the highest volume, seasoned residential elevator companies in the country. Individually, we are small business owners who believe in the value of a handshake and a promise. As Access Elevator and Lift, we are the largest co-operative group of elevator contractors in the country, and together we still hold the same values. For years, this select self-chosen peer group met spontaneously at industry tradeshows and functions, finding ourselves gathered in hotel lobbies into the early morning hours, talking about what would make our businesses better. What would make our customers happier? What would we do differently if we were the ones building the product, not just selling and installing it? Like many great ideas, this one grew organically out of those discussions. Surprising us all, it became the obvious alternative to reluctantly accepting the poor quality and poor responsiveness in the market: let’s build it. Together, we recognized that we had the horsepower and experience to develop a truly revolutionary product line – one built upon the immediate feedback of the end user: you, our customer. We knew from listening to our customers that the car operating panel could be more user-friendly. So, let’s change it! The drive mechanism is too noisy, let’s find a quieter one. There’s new technology that allows an elevator to be powered by solar, let’s build it! Why doesn’t anyone build a home elevator cab with furniture quality craftsmanship? We can and will!
