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!
