Welcome To The CEA!

Thank you for visiting our web site! In addition to providing up to date information to our members we also promote our site to building owners and managers who are in charge of the elevator systems within their buildings.

There is no better way of choosing an elevator contractor, consultant or parts supplier than from our site. We suggest that you bookmark our site so that you can easily find it when in need of an elevator contractor, consultant or supplier! We also encourage you to join and participate in our monthly meetings! The first Thursday of every month we get together and talk about what’s happening in our industry and in the Chicagoland Area!

CEA April Meeting Recap

Thanks to everyone who came out for the meeting at The Clubhouse in Oakbrook on April 5th. Attendance was a packed house for this event, which made it a very enjoyable evening for all the members.

There was a presentation given by Mark Wilson of GAL. Mark gave us an update on all the acquisitions that GAL has made this past year. The company is on an aggressive growth expansion. He discussed the company’s plans to open an office in Elk Grove Village, Illinois to strengthen their Midwest sales.

March Meeting Recap

Thanks to everyone who came out for the meeting at The Clubhouse in Oakbrook on March 2nd. Attendance was a packed house for this event, which made it a very enjoyable evening for all the members.

There was a presentation given by Adam Braman of the Helios. Adam gave us all a great presentation on what is happening with his elevator app. His knowledge of what we all should be looking for with training mechanics on using the app, left us all with a better understanding of what we should be doing for training our staff on the industry’s first Smartphone elevator app.

November’s meeting GAL will be presenting on their elevator equipment. Mark your calendars for the next meeting on April 5th at The Clubhouse in Oakbrook.
