American Elevators, Inc. is an Ohio based company founded in 1976 under the name Cincinnati Independent Elevator Co (CEI). In 2001 our founder, Ray Philhower, purchased CEI and changed the name to American Elevators, Inc.
We started with 113 elevators on service and 2 field employees. Today, we service over 600 elevators and employ 19 people. Our growth has been fueled by providing prompt, professional quality elevator service and repairs to the Tri State and Miami Valley areas for a fair price.
Our main office is located in Cincinnati, Ohio with a satellite location in Dayton Ohio.
We offer full preventive maintenance, service, repair and modernization solutions for vertical transportation equipment in the Central and Southern Ohio areas as well as Northern Kentucky and Eastern Indiana.
Each elevator service mechanic has had a minimum of four years of technical training that includes 8,320 hours of in-field experience. They each have a specific area of expertise and take part in Standard Work Practice (SWP) sessions to keep up to date with current ANSI, ASME, and OSHA regulations, industry best practices for safety and effectiveness, and advanced elevator service, repair and maintenance techniques.
