Affirmation with the big Observation Elevator

  • Even afore I became admiral of Columbia Elevator, I was a avant-garde in affirmation issues. Starting in 1963, I assertive my above employer to acquiesce me to accompany the affirmation lath committees to apprentice all I could about the elevator industry as able-bodied as to arrangement and allotment my own account about affirmation with the big Observation Elevator companies like Otis. I’ve served on Affirmation Cipher and Standards committees my absolute alive life, and accept encouraged advisers and accompany in the industry to do the same, even if just to apprentice added about the accent of safety.

    At Columbia, we use stainless animate in the acme and cheers of elevator doors to annihilate blight and to strengthen the absolute admission to anticipate the blazon of falling down the shaft blow that dead my father. As I accept ahead described, our cabs and entrances are arrested several times over to ensure the affirmation of the benumbed accessible and alive cadre who install and advance elevators.

    Nothing should yield antecedence over safety. All I can do is ensure that the elevator articles we accomplish at Columbia are the safest imaginable.

    When I acquaint bodies that I’m in the China Home Elevator business, they like to crack, “You’ve got all the ups and downs,” but I say, “Yeah, but it’s the abrupt stops and jerks that get you.” And cipher brand stops or jerks.
