Midwest Accessibility Captures July POM

A big thank you and congratulations to Martin Crowley and the crew at Midwest Accessibility Products of Cincinnati, Ohio. Their installation of three Genesis Enclosure IMG_0561-editvertical platform lifts has earned them their first Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for July, 2017.

The project was commissioned by the Housing Authority of Morehead, Kentucky. This follows an earlier project at the IMG_0236-editsame housing complex five years ago. At the time, they chose two Genesis Enclosures. Clearly, the experience was a good one as they opted to purchase three more. These are vertical platform lifts including IMG_0560-editfactory-made aluminum enclosures with bronze plexiglas enclosure panels. This represents a modular accessibility solution, requiring very little special preparation.

Lift for 1st Nutella Cafe Wins June POM

IMG_1525-editThis month we have selected a small Genesis Shaftway vertical lift installed at the very first Nutella Café in Chicago. Noah Szporn, head of marketing at Nutella North America was quoted in USA Today, “There’s an incredible dining culture in this city, and Nutella is all about the idea of sharing good food with friends and family. We thought that Chicago would be the perfect place to do that.”

The Garaventa Lift is painted white and includes power IMG_1526-editdoor operators on both the lower and upper landings. A small shaftway vertical lift is a common, user-friendly accessibility solution for many new retail and light commercial spaces.

Congratulations to Shannon Chasteen and the rest of the IMG_1522-EDITgreat folks at Garaventa Lift Illinois in Antioch. Their submission of photos from The Nutella Café in Chicago has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for June, 2017.
