Our congratulations and appreciation go out to Tom Sena, Neil Hankin, Brian Trueman, David Lair and the rest of the great team at Hankin Specialty Elevator of Rancho Cordova, California. Their submission of photos from a new business park in South San Francisco, California has earned them another Garaventa Lift Project of the Month, this one for November, 2017.
The installation is a beautiful example of modern accessibility to a open mezzanine area using a Genesis Enclosure vertical platform wheelchair lift. The lift is a fully code-compliant accessibility solution, easy to use and practical. The model being used is a Genesis Enclosure GVL-EN-144, mounted in a 3″ pit to allow for level access at the lower landing. Everything about the lift is pretty standard, except that the architect chose to have the lift painted an optional RAL color (RAL 9003).
This month, we are sending our appreciation and support to Handi-Lift Inc. of Carlstadt, New Jersey. Congratulations to Bob Grigorov, James Boydston and the rest of the great professionals at Handi-Lift. Their installation of a LULA Elevator at the Mediterraneo restaurant in White Plains, NY has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for October, 2017.
The elevator is a three-stop unit installed right in the middle of this new modern and upscale restaurant. It is a very impressive installation. The location of the elevator within the establishment ensures it is seen as an architectural centerpiece. The elevator was supplied with a custom-colored aluminum and glass enclosure by Garaventa. The elevator cab is also aluminum and glass.
The top landing is connected to the top seating area by a beautiful catwalk. The view from this area is spectacular, since all of the exterior walls are made from tinted glass panels.
It is common in today’s business world for manufacturers to show appreciation to their best customers for their support. What is not so common is for best customers to formally show their appreciation to their suppliers. That is what happened yesterday here at Garaventa Lift.
One of our best customers is McKinley Elevator Corporation of Irvine, California. They have been Top Performing Garaventa Lift representatives for years. Many times in recent years they have finished as our Number One dealer in the world. As a gesture of their appreciation for Garaventa Lift and our dedicated staff, they treated our entire staff (nearly 200 people) to a BBQ lunch. They even stepped up to cook! Our sincere appreciation goes out to Kevin Rusin and Mark McKinley for making the trip to our facility for this event.
We are fortunate to have the best dealers in the industry representing our products. Having these same people spend time and money to show us their appreciation makes us realize how strong these partnerships are.
