Our services





Mid-American Elevator specializes in elevator modernization, from controller updates to elevator cab and fixture changes, to extensive replacement of all of your elevator equipment. Elevator modernization keeps older buildings competitive with newer buildings, and typically provides a good financial return based on increasing the value of your building.

As elevators age recurring repairs and shut downs are a sign that your elevator may need a modernization.  Aging equipment becomes more difficult to support do to the lack of spare parts availability, difficulty getting electrical prints and ongoing code changes.

Upgrading your equipment is the best way to significantly improve the safety, reliability and efficiency of your conveyance system.  Modern systems reduce energy consumption, improve traffic handling capabilities and increases the value of your building or residential property. Mid-American Elevator has the experience and resources to provide the most appropriate and latest technologies to optimize the results of your modernization.

Mid-American Elevator only uses high quality equipment when performing modernizations. We use only non – proprietary control systems and equipment and additionally manufacture our brand of non-proprietary elevator controllers (Mid-American Equipment Co.).  This enables any qualified elevator company to maintain your equipment. We believe using non- proprietary equipment is most important factor an owner should consider for long term maintenance expenses. Companies that use their own proprietary equipment require special tools to maintain their equipment. These proprietary tools are generally not available to other elevator companies; this often leaves the building owner with only one service company choice and drives up service and repair costs.

Our modernization staff will provide your facility an assessment of the condition of the existing elevator equipment and recommendations for upgrading the system and improving the performance and reliability of the elevators at no charge.

If you do not have the ability to modernize an entire elevator at one time, then we might suggest a modernization which is planned over several years.

We handle a wide selection of cabs to meet every need. They come with a variety of modern interior designs
utilizing wood, mirror, stainless steel, stone, plastic and more. We also offer a host of accessories: signal systems, car stations, hall digital position indicators, hall stations, etc.
