Commercial Elevators

We take business-to-business literally. Our company was founded in 1977 to provide the best solutions in all matters of vertical transportation to Kentucky contractors, businesses, and institutions. As we have grown throughout the years, so has the trust of our commercial clients.

Independence Creates Flexibility

As Kentucky’s largest independent elevator company, our flexibility is unmatched, and our access to parts and services unrestricted. To ensure this, we propose the elevator equipment in your building or project to be non-proprietary. The infrastructure and coverage in our area of operation, organically built and strategically maintained during four decades of operation, allows us to serve commercial customers of all sizes, even in remote locations usually not covered by OEMs.

Planning for the Extra Mile

DC Elevator’s experienced installers rely on a proven process to provide exceptional service, which utilizes their expertise and all the information at hand. They coordinate with your project manager and will provide project specifications, timelines, and drawings to you. These steps ensure that we meet all site preparation requirements involving third parties before we engage in the actual installation.
