Monarch Elevator has been family owned and operated since 1978.
We believe that business should be personal and that each client should be treated professionally. We take pride in our unparalleled responsive and reliable service. In fact, many customers have worked with us for years because of this. We also believe that customers should have access to senior leadership. In other words, we offer big-player expertise but friend-of-the-owner responsiveness.
Our team is made up of highly-skilled journeymen. Each team member has had a minimum of four years of technical training that includes 7,200 hours of in-field experience. They each have a specific area of expertise and take part in shared knowledge sessions to keep everyone up to date with current TSSA regulations, advanced elevator repair and maintenance techniques, safety and industry best practices.
