Since the start of building second floors in the buildings, easy ways to bring people and goods upstairs have been sought. Archimedes laid the foundations of modern elevator technology with the human or animal power elevator project he built in the third century BC. Then, windlass and screw driver based models were developed. And the development of the industry has brought the need for elevators to the highest level, and in particular, lift elevators using steam power have been developed to extract raw materials such as coal and timber from slopes or deep mines. And this process eventually led to the development of the elevators which can transport both people and raw materials safely.
After the elevator was accepted as a safe vertical transport vehicle that can be actively used, the heights of the buildings built were increased and the excavated mines deepened. And elevator companies have emerged to meet all this demand. When we look at the top elevator companies, we see that their histories date back to many years ago. Although many of the top elevator companies that have contributed to the development of elevator technology over the years have stopped their operations due to different crises, there are elevator manufacturers over the age of 140 that still exist today. These top elevator brands, which have been operating for more than a century, have developed today's advanced elevator systems and pioneered development in many areas, primarily in the construction industry.
Nowadays, if buildings with 160 floors and higher than 800 meters can be built, the main factor that ensures this is that elevator technology has advanced enough to make this possible. Top elevator companies constantly develop innovations with their research and development studies and offer them to the use of consumers. We have brought together some of the top elevator companies that produce the elevators that carry us safely to the upper floors. Considering their work and the responsibility they take, the top elevator brands have become the symbols of trust.
