Founded on four generations in the elevator industry
Growing up in the elevator industry was part of Chris Robinson’s everyday life. From early childhood he would tag along with his father Bernie Robinson on emergency callbacks. Bernie started in the elevator business after an honorable discharge from the U.S. Navy in 1958. Bernie worked in new construction, modernization, repair and adjusting. Bernie formed the foundation for his son’s success in the elevator industry.
