Special requests are our standard
There are many companies that build elevators. Maybe it’s better to say they assemble elevators from standard parts according to standard dimensions. We, on the other hand, specialize in implementing our customers’ wishes, no matter how unusual the design, how sophisticated the technology or how complicated the dimensions.
You could also say: We can do it all — from the smallest passenger elevator with a load capacity of 150 kilograms and a floor area of 0.52 square meters, to noble panoramic glass elevators or car elevators in which the vehicle is rotated during travel, to the largest underfloor freight elevator with a load capacity of 15,000 kilograms and a floor area of 38 square meters.
Maximum flexibility due to own production
We have always relied on our own production so that we are not dependent on what the supplier market offers us. In this way, we remain as flexible as possible when planning an elevator and know that all components meet our high quality standards. In any case, we have always been pioneers in the development and construction of elevator controls and have always set innovative impulses.
Our unusually large vertical range of manufacture covers almost all relevant parts from which a special plant is made: In our sheet metal processing department, we manufacture cabins, frames, portals and control panels, and in our classic steel construction department, we manufacture shaft equipment and support frames through to complete glass shaft frames. We have a large machine park at our disposal for this purpose.
Our experience saves our customers a lot of time
Our electronics specialists produce controllers and frequency controls as well as various additional components. We are particularly proud of our hardware and software — almost exclusively our own developments. With the control programs from Thoma Aufzüge, even large elevator groups can be operated in a versatile and effective manner.
It is our experience that a good and often also inexpensive solution can be found for almost any technical challenge. And because we have always succeeded in doing so, the teams in our planning and design department have a large repertoire of samples and examples of special plants of every design. This enables us to show our customers what is possible right from the quotation phase. Even experts are always surprised by this. And, of course, it also saves a lot of time in any construction project if you start with the advantage of great experience.
Sustainability is an element of our corporate culture
In all of this, the quality of our equipment is paramount. And that doesn’t just mean an attractive design and high-quality materials. A good elevator also convinces with reliability, ride comfort and speed and thus shorter waiting times, but also with little things like the function of switches and panels. That’s why we focus on high-quality components and well thought-out designs. After all, we don’t just want to build particularly attractive elevators, but also ones that are durable and have a low failure rate. For us, sustainability is not just an empty phrase but has long been an important element of our corporate culture.
