UNITED ELEVATOR SERVICES, LLC

CELEBRATING 60 YEARS OF QUALITY INSTALLATIONS & SERVICE

David Vickers; son in law, Taylor Sawyer; and sons, Justin and Jeff Cruze

Training Class

In 1958, two brothers, Paul and Howard Vickers were given the choice that with the sale of their employer, Elevator Sales and Service, they could join the Union and work for one of the major elevator companies or go home. The brothers had returned from service in the Korean War and found work that they enjoyed as mechanics in the elevator industry. Instead of taking either of those options they split up to each start their own independent elevator company. Paul Vickers founded United Elevator Services to provide service and repairs in and around Knoxville, TN.

keep track of the industry but still did not know what was available on the open market. He joined the NAEC and went to his first convention and show in 1996. There he found that member manufacturers were not just there to sell him products but to provide support and help his company to grow. David began building relationships that continue to thrive to this day with the NAEC being a major reason for the growth of United Elevator Services.

The company began adding new installation work with equipment from ESCO and other companies serving the independent market. From there he added residential elevators, stair chairs, and lifts. Keeping the company small he relied heavily on his oldest son David who had worked for the company as a teenager, joined full time in 1976. David started in construction but his natural “gearhead” abilities had him performing service and adjusting. Finally, in 1994, David Vickers purchased United Elevator Services from his father with an eye not just on growing the business but by competing with the majors in every aspect of the business. His first move was to then take over his Uncle Howard’s company and incorporate both into United Elevator Services, LLC. One of his next moves was to get involved. Like so many independent companies, he received Elevator World to

David was able to secure distributorship of the US Elevator Ascension hydraulic elevators which allowed him to successfully compete with the major installer in East Tennessee quickly taking 25% of the new hydraulic installation business.

local representative. That office quickly grew to cover not only the Tri-Cities but also into the bordering States. That office has continued to grow in all aspects of the business. As US Elevator was phased out, the independent market segment went to Northern Elevator, then Vertex and now Vertical Express, United Elevator Services has remained one of the top installers as well as for many other suppliers. We also heavily rely on the Certified Elevator Technician program provided through the NAEC to train our technicians and stay at the top of the marketplace. When the last independent in Memphis, TN was bought by one of the majors, United Elevator Services quickly stepped in to fill the void. We have quickly grown in that area in service, modernization and repairs. Similarly, in Nashville we purchased Warner Elevator in 2010 and through quality service and installations have established a well-respected office in the center of the State. In the last two years, we expanded into Chattanooga with a growing office there that also serves North Georgia. The Vickers’ family has continued to grow with the business; sons Justin Cruze (Operations and Contracts Manager) and Jeff Cruze (Construction/Modernization Sales) with son in law Taylor Sawyer (Service and Repair Sales Knoxville) all work for UES. As we have grown to well over 100 employees across the State we have several multi generation families working with us. This shows just how important the elevator industry is to us all. Again, we contribute some of our growth and success to the resources provided by the NAEC. David is a member of the Certification Committee Board supporting the CET/CAT Program. Each year we take a half dozen or so key individuals to the Convention including one or two field technicians. We do this to show appreciation for their hard work but also to show them the rest of United Elevator Services. The majors have their manufacturing facilities, engineering departments, and tech support and at convention we can show our employees ours, the OEM manufacturers and after market manufacturers that serve our market. We also learn from our fellow independent companies and have developed strong relationships across the State and even with our regional competitors. We believe the independent elevator market must stand together in the market place. We also believe in giving back within the NAEC. Besides serving on committees we have hosted classes for training not only our employees but other regional companies at the same time at our training facility. In Toronto, we met John Ilao with JMI-Edison of Guam. They had found a great need in their territory and opened and elevator division but needed some help getting started. We offered them any assistance we could and John along with his son and nephews came all the way to Knoxville, TN to see how we

operate our business. We helped them with everything we could think of from contracts to processes, vendor contacts to code, to help them be successful in the elevator business. We were just happy to help a fellow independent. At the end of the day, the success of United Elevator Services, LLC has been simple; we contract for what we say we will do, then we do what the contract says. This simple business model has kept our company growing and expanding with little or no advertising, but by word of mouth from our customers. Hardly a day goes by where you won’t find David Vickers saying “It’s a great day at United Elevator Services.” And we know tomorrow will be a great one too.

WESTCOAST INNOVATIVE PRO-PADS For over 35 years, Westcoast Companies, Inc. has been manufacturing protective elevator pads. The company was founded in 1982 by Leslie Malloy, who came up with the idea while working as a receptionist at a large elevator company. After receiving calls from customers asking about elevator protection padding, Leslie decided to take matters into her own hands and started her own company. Combining her degrees in Fashion Design and Merchandising from FIDM and Business/Economics from UCLA, Leslie started Westcoast pads in her living room at the age of 23. Using her background as a pattern maker, Leslie researched fabrics, fillers, quilting vendors and elevator codes. She then leased an industrial sewing machine, constructed a pad set, and made her first sale to Westinghouse Elevator in Burbank, California.

1982

Over the years Westcoast has grown steadily and has expanded its product line -- offering different pad material options and new innovative hanging hardware, such as the ‘Ultimate Loop Hole’TM, which Leslie designed herself and is being patented. “Protecting the client’s’ investment is the core of our business,” stated Leslie. With 37 years of experience in the elevator industry, Leslie is proud to be manufacturing products “Made in America,” using Green Friendly materials. Westcoast is also nationally certified as a WBE and WOBM. They supply products to elevator contractors in Europe, Dubai, Australia and other countries worldwide. The company is pleased to see their pads being featured in T.V. shows, movies, and in the NY Times.

The requests Westcoast has received for custom pads over the years range from cream colored, (not very practical), to ‘something the dogs would like,’ (for the service elevator the dogs use), to matching the floral lobby fabrics in boutique hotels. A lift company in Australia regularly orders pads in Royal Blue with Red bias edging and Lime Green Embroidery. We cautioned them that they would be downright ugly, and they said that is what they wanted - so that no one would steal them. Leslie remembers attending her first NAEC convention in San Diego in 1976, and has continued to attend them and exhibit since the 1988 show in Hawaii. She has been an active member of the NAEC and credits the organization for establishing long standing friendships within the industry. She claims the affiliation has allowed Westcoast to maintain a viable presence through the annual convention and the mid-year conferences. Leslie served as part of the NAEC New Member and Archives Committees. She is also a member of the VIEEW which supports women in the industry.

Leslie is happy to be keeping the business in her family -- closely working with her daughter Marghi, a sixth generation Californian. Marghi earned a B.S. degree in Consumer Science and Business from the University of Arizona. She is excited to be a part of the industry having joined the NAEC’s NexGen Marghi and Leslie Malloy at an EESF Event group, and serves on their membership development committee. “It’s great that the NAEC is encouraging the younger generation by fostering peer relationships and team building,” says Marghi. She has also supported the EESF, having presented their safety program to first grade classrooms.

SEISMIC SWITCH Seismic Switch is the leading provider of earthquake safety equipment for the elevator industry for 47 years.

We are pleased to announce a new product feature: The CHV-2 is now adjustable and includes a jumper that allows you to select one of several trigger level settings.

Seismic’ s office just moved to 889 Fourth St. in downtown San Rafael. Leah Green, who purchased the company from her father seven years ago, has been with the firm for 19 years, where she’s put her MBA to good use. Green said San Rafael offers the best opportunities for the company and her expanding pursuits. “I wanted a setting where I could become more involved with the community.” Leah Green

San Rafael Mayor Gary Phillips was on hand with Chamber of Commerce members for a ribbon-cutting ceremony welcoming Seismic Switch to its new home. Green’s older daughter, Lily, 10, could be seen chatting with visitors and later, holding the scissors with the mayor, perhaps preparing to eventually take the reins to become a third-generation family-business leader.

Under the terms of the exclusive two-year contract, EHC will supply NT and TufFlex handrail platforms in addition to field splicing and technical support services. RATP is responsible for most of the public transport in Paris, including the Paris Métro, tram and bus services as well as part of the RER network. Established in 1900, the Paris Métro is one of the busiest metro systems in the world with 16 lines and over 300 stations. In 2016, Paris Métro was ranked as the best public transport system in the world by the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) with all Parisians having an easy access to rapid transport, ahead of 26 other international cities. The RER, a hybrid suburban commuter/rapid transit system serving Paris and its suburbs, is comprised of five lines and over 250 stations, including several connections with the Paris Métro.

MEMORIAM

Walter G. Glaser, Sr. - On the 29th December 2018, we were saddened to hear the news of the passing of Walter Glaser, after a brave battle with cancer. Walter passed away peacefully at his home in Lighthouse Point, Florida, at the age of 78. For the employees, officers, customers and suppliers of GAL Manufacturing, Walter was a true icon in the elevator industry. He was known as an intelligent, focused, but extremely fun-loving and caring individual. His innovations in the design of door operators and emergency safety rope grippers revolutionized elevator productions standards worldwide. Walter was the son of GAL founder Herbert Paul and Frieda Glaser, and he served as Vice President of GAL for several decades alongside his brother Herbert “Herb Jr.”, until the acquisition of the company by a private equity concern in 2017. Across GAL, Hollister-Whitney and GAL Canada, we remember Walter fondly as someone who always brought a smile to those who were fortunate enough to make his acquaintance, creating life-long friendships wherever he went, both within North America and around the world. We’re ever grateful for Walter’s legacy, and our hearts go out to his family who will miss him dearly. Walter’s family welcomes donations in his memory to the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation (356 Morgan Ave, Mobile, AL 36606) or to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (www.stjude.org).

In Loving Memory Robert C. Schumacher, 57, a resident of Goodyear, Arizona, and a former resident of White Lake, Michigan, died on October 20, 2018, after a valiant battle with pancreatic cancer. Robert served as chief inspector for the City of Detroit, elevator supervisor at Michigan State University and chief elevator inspector for the City of Phoenix. He was a member of NAEC and Elevator U, serving as conference host in 2012. Industry colleagues had warm praise for their late friend, including Parts Specialists’ Glenn Duncan, who described Schumacher as “a great friend who will be missed.” Survivors include wife, Gina, and son, Robert Chester Schumacher, III. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Schumacher’s honor for pancreatic cancer research at www. ucancervive.com/in-memory-of-robert-schumacher/. 100% of all donations will be used to find a cure for pancreatic cancer, in an effort make this world cancer free.
