Our History

The idea of a Fostoria, Ohio based elevator company came after Harold Davis, one of the original founders, was asked by a local businessman to convert his hand-operated elevator to an electrically operated device.

After being successful in creating a conversion that was much cheaper than constructing a new elevator, Davis and his colleague Paul Newcomer began to install them all throughout Ohio in 1921.

The rest is history!
