Retail is quite possibly the most reliant sector on vertical transportation from
a profit perspective. The ability for a retailer to move shoppers vertically levels
the playing field and subsequently the rent for second, third and even fourth fourth
floor storefronts. Time is in every sense money and down time for one escalator
has a dramatic impact on the entire property. Ensuring proper maintenance is being
performed is critical in this sector and too often overlooked and not being done
resulting in lengthy and costly down the road repairs.
Retail also presents a unique challenge for escalators, unlike any other sector,
retail is exposed to all ages of passengers and therefore all the different kinds
of accidents that can occur. Aside from ensuring proper maintenance is being performed,
keeping equipment up to date with safety switches is critical. Whether this is done
via a partial modernization or a complete unit replacement we are adept at making
the proper recommendation and seeing the Project through to completion.
