About Bramalea Elevator

At Bramalea Elevator, we are the experts in providing custom-made solutions for vertical transportation, primarily for freight. No two projects are the same, and we strive to provide solutions to satisfy the design needs of building planners, architects, constructions firms and owners. We believe that, being in the business of custom made products, it is vital for us to set and adhere to extremely high working standards. All our products conform to the Safety code for Elevators and Escalators ASME A17.1/CSA B-44 standard.

Our strength lies in our targeted approach to hydraulic design. Hydraulic pressure is what moves us! We stay away from conventional buried cylinders which can have a harsh environmental impact. Instead, our cylinders are directly coupled to the elevator cab. This direct linkage allows for fewer components and thus less maintenance.

Our design is known throughout the industry as being quieter, with a smoother ride and less bouncing. This is accomplished with our two speed valve that controls the flow of hydraulic oil through the cylinder. There is also a two way leveling system built into our design which allows the elevator to readjust the level of the platform after it reaches the desired landing during loading and unloading. Our design is more economical as it requires a smaller pump when lifting the same capacity, installation is quicker, and our entire system requires less maintenance because there is less hardware, and fewer moving parts.

Company History

From humble beginnings in Southern Ontario, Bramalea Elevator Ltd. was established in 1989 as a manufacturer of high quality, value priced material lifts (previously called freight platform lifts) for commercial and industrial applications.

In the mid 1970’s, Jim Ninness, owner of Bramalea Elevator,  participated in drafting changes to the B44 Elevator Safety Code. These changes allowed for material lifts to provide an economical alternative to freight elevators without compromising safety.

As Engineering Manager at that time for Blue Giant Equipment, he oversaw the design and implementation of the first material lifts in Canada. Having brought this experience with him to Bramalea Elevator Ltd., and with the help of a dedicated and experienced staff, the company has become the premier manufacturer of quality freight lifts in Canada, expanding to offices in Calgary, Vancouver and the USA.

Our product lineup has expanded to include freight elevators, automobile elevators, dumbwaiters and custom vertical platform lifts (commonly known as handicapped lift). We are also proud to provide our elevator products with freestanding support structures/ enclosures for turnkey applications.

Our design office and manufacturing facility is located in Brampton, Ontario.

We provide installation across Canada and service for the Greater Toronto Area.

Service & Modernization

One of our strengths is the provision of timely, reliable and cost effective services to our customers. To render quality services, we have our own in-house service fleet, consisting of dedicated licensed service mechanics providing round the clock service (select Canadian Cites).

Due to technological advancements, newer components and upgrades are available from time to time. These upgrades can breathe new life into a lift or elevator and can enhance the performance of existing unit. Our Modernization Department works with our clients, catering to their specific needs to make suitable upgrade recommendations to them.

We are committed to delivering the best technology and quality to every single customer in a customized solution – on time, every time, everywhere. Trust Bramalea.
