Doing the Right Thing: AJ’s Story

At Genesis Elevator Company, we deeply value the motto “Do the Right Thing”.

We want to recognize one of our service technicians for an outstanding example of this set of values. Yesterday while he was performing a Residential PM, AJ found a diamond ring in the pit of the elevator. He immediately brought the ring up to the owners.

The owners were blown away that AJ had not only found a family heirloom, which had been missing for a year, but they were truly blown away by his integrity.

We are so proud of AJ’s dedication to integrity, honesty and doing the right thing. Way to go!

Adjusting to Accessibility Needs

Over the years, as your mobility needs change, a residential elevator can provide a means of easily adjusting to those needs in your home.  Retrofitting an elevator into an existing home is as simple as stacking closets.  If you are able to stack closets either on the inside or outside of your home, we are able to install a residential elevator.  It is truly that simple.

As a courtesy, Genesis Elevator Company will provide a site visit to help you determine a best location and best technology to meet your needs.  In that visit we will share with you the different systems available, the benefits of each, and a total project cost.  Let us know if there is an interest as we always welcome the opportunity of “taking you to the next level”.



Why are Modernizations Important?

Why are elevator modernizations important?

To answer the question simply, elevator modernizations are important because elevators and vertical transportation equipment are important. Elevators enable the population density and city structures that we have today.

Elevators, like anything mechanical can have their service life and performance effected by age or lack of maintenance. Whether it is a small hydraulic elevator in an apartment block, a home elevator or an vertical platform lift the elevator system is one of the most important components of a building. Elevators and other vertical transportation provide accessibility to tenants and customers, as well as the ability to move materials and goods throughout buildings for maintenance staff.

Genesis Elevator Company of Atlanta has service, repair and modernization specialists who are here to help you maintain, update and repair your vertical transportation equipment. We understand the importance of safety and accessibility, and we want to take you to the next level. Call Genesis Elevator Company of Atlanta today at 770-423-1095.

Elevator Maintenance and the Property Manager

Building owners and property managers have many duties in ensuring the safety and satisfaction of their tenants and customers. These duties apply to their accessibility equipment as well.

Building owners and property managers who have vertical transportation equipment, such as elevators, escalators and lifts, have an even greater responsibility to the people who use them. Vertical transportation equipment systems combine electrical, mechanical and hydraulic components which must be well maintained.

As part of the duties of an observant management team, we encourage you to make sure your service is on the next level with a maintenance contract. Genesis Elevator Company of Atlanta provides a wide variety of service contracts ranging between standard oil and grease contracts to full comprehensive maintenance contracts.

Pinewood Atlanta Studios

Genesis Elevator Company of Atlanta teamed up with Group VI, Foley Design and Halbert Development to come together just in the nick of time to get the elevator installed at Pinewood Atlanta Studios before Marvel’s ANT-MAN movie received it’s final touches. Tax credits in Atlanta have recently driven the demand sky high for movie production companies to come to our fine town. The Genesis Elevator Company team would like to thank everyone involved in making this production a success and for all of your hard work!

This is Pinewood Atlanta Studios’ first production and will be showing this Thursday in theaters everywhere.  Show times start at 7:15 PM!  Let’s go to the MOVIES! See you there!




Lifting Equipment

Lifting equipment is not for hot-dogging! Despite the humorous pictures, lifting equipment, such as lulls and lifts are a necessary component of the elevator installation process, particularly during the offloading process.

During the contracting process, Genesis Elevator and the contractors of a project will decide who is responsible for making sure lifting equipment is on-site. Genesis is happy to rent the equipment as part of the contract price.

Elevator Repair: Rails

Part of proper elevator maintenance is addressing cosmetic issues that naturally arise with use. A missing elevator handrail not only inhibits a component of accessibility, it can be displeasing aesthetically like the picture below:
