Ruempler’s career began in 1964 with Otis, for which he worked until 1992. From 1992-2004, he worked for General Elevator, which was acquired by thyssenkrupp. He then went on to work for EESSC until his retirement in 2017. Ruempler is a third-generation elevator man: Both his father, Harold F. Ruempler, and his grandfather, Harold E. Ruempler, worked for Otis, from 1946-1992 and 1922-1972, respectively. Mark E. Berkey, EESSC general manager, observed their careers total 149 years, representing “quite a legacy!”
