There was a time when black, steam powered locomotives would huff and puff into the station, take on water and coal, load up with cargo and passengers and the conductor would yell, “All aboard!” It signified the train was leaving the station and if you weren’t on the train and ready to go, you would be left behind in a cloud of steam, smoke, and coal dust. The analogy has been used countless times when writing about new innovation and being a part of a movement forward or advances in technology. You don’t want to miss the train and be left behind.
The elevator industry is on the cusp of just such a transitional move forward and leading the way with the innovation is Phoenix Modular Elevator. We have seen exponential growth over the past few years as people become more acquainted with the company and what makes us unique to the building and elevator industries. That uniqueness, to state it plainly and simply, is due to the fact that we offer a manufactured, commercial, quality elevator that is safer and faster to install than any traditional elevator available at a comparable price. Faster? Think days (in less than a week) not months for the hoistway and elevator to be fully installed and functional. Safer? No heavy rails to to lug around, no cab to install, and, most importantly, no open hoistway hatches to fall through.
Elevator technicians have confided with us, stating that Phoenix Modular Elevator has eliminated the most dangerous and time consuming aspects of the elevator install. Manufacturing a completed hoistway, with the elevator car and rails already installed, that is pre-roped and pre-wired makes all the difference. But not all are ready for a new age. There was a time when innovation, especially in regards to safety, was a paramount concern, but, inexplicably, today many are still holding on to old technology that puts installers at risk.
Fortunately for the workers, many are now starting to see the benefits of less potentially harmful physical labor. It’s no wonder we are currently partnering with a major elevator manufacturer and elevator installers across North America. They have come to the same conclusion we have: modular elevators are just much better than old fashioned elevators for the people that have to do the installing and the speed of the installation is better for the customer.
Modular elevators are a win/win all the way around.
Yes, you can ignore the trends, safety of elevator technicians, and the benefits of fast installation, but just remember that the train is leaving the station and you can either choose to get on board or ride the old steam locomotive to the dusty museum filled with artifacts from the past. The choice is yours, but keep in mind that as we continue to expand, opportunity abounds for those willing to partake. It is time to let go of the outmoded past.
