Our services





We’re experts at building and installing all types of elevators, with particular expertise in traction (cable) equipment. We’ve installed over 1,000 elevators and escalators, including the vertical transportation in some of the landmark buildings in Chicago. Our ability to analyze the probable traffic patterns in your building and our knowledge of the latest elevator technologies allow us to help you select the most efficient and cost-effective system for your construction project. We incorporate the latest improvements in modern design, performance and energy efficiency in our new elevator projects.

We will work with your architect in providing specifications and recommendations as to the type, size and speed of equipment to best conform with requirements of individual buildings. In addition, contractors can rely upon us for fast, accurate and competitive estimates,
including cost and construction time.

Mid-American can install all of the following elevator equipment including:
• relatively inexpensive hydraulic elevators for buildings up to six floors,
• cost-effective geared traction elevators for mid-rise construction,
• high-performance gearless traction elevators for high-rise projects, and
• large freight elevators or material lifts for commercial or industrial applications.
Simply tell us what you would like to accomplish and we’ll do the rest!
