CAVINDER ELEVATOR COMPANY'S commitment to service is based on core principles from 3 generations of family elevator owner beliefs. Our “Guarantee” to performance based service with minimum set number of service visits and hours on the job gives you peace of mind that you are getting what you are paying for.
In addition, our minimum set service hours and frequency utilized by the highest technically trained IUEC mechanics ensures that you are receiving the best true “Preventative Maintenance” program in the industry. "Nothing replaces a mechanic's hands on mechanical elevator equipment” and this is a proven philosophy in reducing callbacks, ensuring life of the equipment and overall tenant satisfaction.
Applying more preventative hours per month per elevator, along with reducing the number of elevators per mechanic, ensures reduced callbacks along with our increased fast response times. Communication is also imperative and what separates CAVINDER ELEVATOR COMPANY from the competition with local ownership to answer questions or resolve issues on the spot.
Trusting partnerships are important in a good business relationship, which is why our 24/7 call center, office, mechanics and owners are local and vested in the community in which we serve. All service is performed under our MCP (maintenance control program) and the National Elevator ANSI 17.1 code.

SW was established in 2003 and within a 5-year period became the largest independent elevator company in Arizona.
Focusing attention on customer service and implementing the necessary man hours to perform preventative maintenance services on our elevators/escalators led to this achievement.
Currently working in Dallas/Fort Worth area with over 90% of the Fort Worth market being within our profile. The Arizona, California, & Nevada locations were sold to KONE in 2012.
General Elevator Sales and Service was incorporated in the state of Florida and was the largest independently owned elevator company operating in Florida.
General Elevator specialized in Service, Modernization & Repair with approximately 5000 units under service.
Established as Economy Elevator in South Bend, Indiana and later acquired by Tom A. Cavinder in 1968. A potential customer, Notre Dame University, requested the name be changed before any business could occur.
Hence, the name was born that day! Cavinder became a monster working in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, and Kentucky. From major steel manufacturers in Indiana to major pharmaceutical companies in Michigan to highrise buildings in Chicago, to universities throughout.
Cavinder provided tailored contracts to meet the customers' specific needs resulting in higher customer service and reduction in operational costs. Sold to Otis Elevator in 2002.
Established in 1908 in Danville, IL as a machine shop and an elevator service company. Paul R. Cavinder (or our Grandpa) purchased the company after working then for a major, Haughton Elevator and quit and turned Fairhall into a major independent operating in Illinois and Indiana.
With strategic alliances with supplier Armor Elevator most installations in the area went to them…then that created a huge service base.
They sold in 1985 to Montgomery which is now KONE elevator…at the time it was Montgomery’s largest acquisition.
Cavinder has developed relationships with all the largest providers of elevators, parts and equipment. So no matter what elevators you are currently using, Cavinder has the knowledge and support to service them.
The aforementioned is just a short list of our major suppliers; we have over 1000 suppliers in our database.
