See You in Bavaria

By Ricia Sturgeon-Hendrick | October 1, 2019

The Pretty Side

By Ricia Sturgeon-Hendrick | September 1, 2019

It would be easy to dismiss cabs and doors as just the “pretty” side of the elevator business; however, the way the cab looks and the way the doors work says everything about the building in which the elevator works. The way it looks may be your only chance to make an impression on passengers…
