TK Elevator has signed an agreement to acquire City Elevator, a provider of elevator service and maintenance in the Metro Vancouver area.

City Elevator was founded in 2004 by Heiner Marnet and Dennis Graham.

“As the urbanization boom extends west to cities like Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver, it is critical to have the best technicians, tools and technologies to keep building transportation systems safely operating,” said Kevin Lavallee, President and CEO, TK Elevator North America. “City Elevator has been one of those important elevator service providers in the Vancouver area for many years, and we are very pleased to have them join our expanding TKE family.”

TK Elevator supports commercial office buildings in downtown Vancouver, such as 601 West Hastings, 1133 Melville, 1090 West Pender and the Alberni Tower.

“Vancouver is a very special community to us, and we are proud to expand our presence there with the acquisition of City Elevator,” said Blaine Coupal, President and CEO, TK Elevator Canada.

Earlier this year, TK Elevator acquired three elevator companies in Ontario, two located in Toronto and one in Northern Ontario. In the U.S., TK Elevator acquired Albany Elevator and Accurate Elevator in Albany, New York and Marathon, Florida.
