Elevators are a valuable asset in every building that utilizes them. Care should be taken to preserve them at a high standard: safe, reliable and code compliant.
Partnering with a company that provides that care on each and every job will take the stress out of elevator management. Contact us to learn more about how we can help.
Elevators are the safest form of transportation, and that is due to the high standards imposed by regulatory authorities. By law, elevating devices accessible to the public must be maintained by a licensed elevator contractor and must comply with all current code requirements.
At Summit Elevator, we spell this out explicitly in our service agreements. We strive to maintain the highest possible standards for all our clients, and we stand behind the work we do, each and every time. Ready to take elevator safety to new heights?
Our licensed elevator mechanics have diverse experience, and we can maintain all types of equipment from various manufacturers. From low-rise apartment buildings to high-rise commercial buildings, we maintain elevators from various vintages, with some original equipment dating back to the 1950s.
Complementing this, we work on modern microprocessor-based systems as well. Our customers benefit from this vast range of experience as it allows us to effectively troubleshoot equipment problems.
Continuous education is the life blood of our company. Investing heavily in training simulators and mobile communication allows us to stay ahead of the curve, ensuring that we provide only the best work for your business.
Coupled with our intense dedication to great customer service, what we provide is cutting-edge work with a personal touch.

Advanced System Tracking
The (MCP) Maintenance Control Plan
Advanced system tracking workflow and MCP compliance: Over time, those details get converted to preventative maintenance data through machine learning. That means we get a heads-up about trouble machinery and potential problems before they happen.
What is an MCP?
This is a document that contains a comprehensive set of records of safety checks and tests, as well as work done, to your elevator. It is kept on-site at all times, so that the customer remains informed of what gets done, and when. It is often used by government inspectors to determine if the elevators comply with code, ensuring that your elevator remains safe for public use.
Our maintenance control plan uses advanced system tracking and machine learning to predict problems before they happen.
Don't be fooled by empty promises — with our maintenance control plan, you'll be certain that the work is getting done, correctly and efficiently.
Elevator refurbishment is a complex task that requires careful consideration and a high level of technical skill.

- Partial Modernization
- When to Modernize
- Cost of Modernization
- Traction Modernization
- Hydraulic Modernization
- Gearless Upgrade
At the twenty or thirty-year mark, it is common for elevators to require a full refurbishment.
That work varies, depending on the elevator’s preventative maintenance schedule, and the quality of the initial install. The type of elevator (hydraulic or traction) has a big impact as well.
Our team of expert technicians will work with you to determine the best upgrade path for your elevator. Give us a call to get started.
A modernization schedule can help extend the longevity of your elevator. We can help predict when certain equipment needs replacement, resulting in less shutdowns and less wear and tear on your unit.
The partial modernization process requires a tremendous level of competence and expertise. Done right, it can save you money.
Determining when and how to modernize can be tricky. Our approach tries to simplify things by providing a comprehensive overview of your options, over the short and long-term. Sometimes we recommend a total overhaul, other times we can extend the life of your elevator with simple repairs and preventative maintenance.
Integrity, commitment, and expertise sits at our core. Contact us now for an honest and informed assessment of your modernization needs.
Cost is key. Work estimates should be as detailed as possible, and include recommended components, timelines, and a full cost breakdown.
If you want an expert to look at your elevator, get a hold of us. We are happy to take a look.

New construction requires strict adherence to timelines and workflows, which makes the choice of elevator contractor crucial for the success of your project.
While elevators are offered with standard specifications, each project tends to be unique. Considerations like pit depth, ceiling heights and entrance orientation have a big impact, and generally result in a build that is more custom than standard.
Dealing with these nuances requires careful study and planning, vigilance for safety, and a constant eye on the bottom line. You can trust us to deliver the best results, on time and on budget.
We are experienced and are an established provider of all kinds of elevators with the ability to provide various non-standard options, including:
- Varying duty load (load capacity and speed)
