A Little Flash Was Icing on the Cake

In line with our Machines and Drives focus, we take you inside the machine room serving Self-Help® Credit Union at 122 North Elm Street in Greensboro, North Carolina. Here, mechanics from local company Resolute Elevator LLC performed a complete modernization of a 1971 Otis system, incorporating Hollister-Whitney machines, Imperial Electric motors and GAL controllers. The trio of 3500-lb capacity elevators consists of one 11-stop and two 10-stop units. Resolute President Kimberly Fox tells ELEVATOR WORLD the job was the largest the 5-year-old company had ever done. Resolute received its construction permit in April 2018 completed the job in October 2018. Powering elevators that access different parts of the midrise facility, each machine had to be modernized individually.

Modernization is the specialty of Resolute, which is going strong, having doubled its payroll to 15 since being founded. “Our guys love modernization,” Fox says. “There’s never anything cookie cutter. You always have to make a round peg fit into a square hole.” For this job, the old Otis machines went from an industrial green to bright red and blue. “We paint almost all of our modernization projects in flashy colors like this,” Fox says.
