Proudly Serving our customers since 1978
In 2012, the company was purchased by two-second generation employees and leaders, Ken Persons Jr. and Steve Hudak, who are committed to upholding the values that earned G&R it’s highly respected position in the elevator cab manufacturing industry today.
We believe our success is due to our focus on G&R’s founding philosophy in every phase of our projects—to provide quality products at fair prices while providing the highest level of customer service. It is this philosophy that has made us trusted partners of those in the elevator, architecture, and construction communities.
Everyone in sales, engineering, and production works to eliminate code, design, fabrication, and installation problems before manufacturing begins.
Your customers will want to see what is being provided, so we utilize the most recent release of SOLIDWORKS to provide detailed drawings to meet your project’s specifications. Electronic drawings can be emailed or hard copies mailed to you. We are aware you need to schedule your work well in advance, so you can rely on us to have consistent manufacturing lead times and on-time shipping.
Our lead times are among the best in the elevator industry and our on-time rate is exceptional. We are usually able to offer faster lead times for the occasional rush project.
When we promise, we deliver.
What To Expect From G&R
- Professional Service
- Technical Expertise
- Unmatched Craftsmanship
- Innovative Solutions
Technical and Design Consultation
Alongside Architects, Designers, Consultants, and Contractors, G&R’s Sales Engineers work to fully understand the design vision and project scope while providing unique expertise specific to elevator cab manufacturing. Architectural design concepts or drawings are often shared at this time so that material evaluation and sourcing can begin. For projects with a high degree of complexity, a Project Engineer may become involved. At times, G&R provides photorealistic images and/or 3D model renderings to illustrate complex designs. If this applies to your project please ask your Sales Engineer for more details regarding product visualization.
Site Survey (if requested)
Depending on the project, you might need assistance gathering data about your elevator cab(s). For an additional cost, we can send one of our engineers to the job site to gather the appropriate dimensions and note special conditions. Review our site survey forms available under “Quote Preparation”.
Upon receiving architectural drawings and scope details, our Sales Engineers will collect necessary information from external suppliers and prepare a detailed proposal. You can request a quote or place an order by contacting our Sales department at 877-603-5352, or by email, firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also request quotes via our online Request A Quote form, and upload digital drawings and other supporting files with your quote request.
Material Samples & Approvals
When specialized materials are involved it is customary for the architect or designer to provide G&R with the necessary control samples of the specialized materials. Sometimes a control sample is generic in that there is no specific material vendor requirement but instead the visual appearance of the sample is the guiding factor. In these cases, G&R produces suitable matching material samples and gives them to the representatives responsible for approval. Often, as in the case of wood veneer samples, we provide more than one sample in order to define a permissible range of color and to alleviate unnecessary, expensive mistakes and delays.
Approval drawings which include dimensions and installation details are prepared with SolidWorks and the drawings are sent to the elevator contractor for approval before production begins.
Mock-Up (additional cost)
A first production run mock-up may occur for review of workmanship, but not approval of materials or design as materials and design will already have been approved. Mock-ups are sometimes requested when a design team wants to ensure that the elevator cab design exhibits their vision, meets functional requirements, and is also manufactured to meet expectations.
All of the planning and preparation culminates in fabrication, as our team of highly experienced artisans produces the highest quality components and turn concepts into reality. Our production team takes great care in material logistics to assure that an exquisite finished product remains that way until it reaches the job site.
Packaging & Shipping
G&R ships locally, domestically, and overseas, and will utilize the most appropriate packaging techniques to assure your parts arrive in pristine condition. Our Customer Service Manager will coordinate the specific details with appropriate parties.
You’ll find that our staff are here to answer questions and provide insight at any stage of your project. From sales, to engineering, to fabrication—we’re here every step of the way.
G&R Custom Elevator Cab’s most valuable resource has always been the extensive experience, dedication, and professionalism of our employees. As a result of their efforts and care, your expectations will be met in our products and services.
