Rochester Hills, MI – November 6, 2014 – A4 Access, a subsidiary of Wright & Filippis dedicated to providing accessibility products and related services, today announced it has obtained certification as the first authorized distributer of Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators in the state of Michigan.
The Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator is the only vacuum elevator in the world, is easy to retrofit into homes and has the smallest environmental footprint of any elevator. The bank tube-like elevator is operated by air pressure above and below the car using a small amount of electricity.
“We are excited to be the first to offer this one-of-a-kind product to Michigan residents,” said Kathy DeBow, Director of A4 Access. “Accessibility is our business and finding ways to offer new solutions to customers is most important. This product requires minimal disruption to install and requires minimum maintenance, making it a great addition to our product line. This technology offers another way to help our patients to age in place,” she said.
A4 Access journeymen are fully trained and licensed to install the new elevator and can complete an installation within two to four days, depending on the number of stops. A4 Access also stands behind all of its products with local warranty support and service.
“We see great potential in the Michigan market and are proud to partner with A4 Access.” said Stefan Gruber, sales and marketing manager at PVE. “At PVE, we deem our elevators a work of art powered by air,” he added.
PVE was founded in 2002 and is an innovative, technology driven company revolutionizing how people and goods are transported vertically. PVE elevators are fully certified by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers
