The Story of Artisan Elevators

Building on the success of the Artisan Elevator line, Nationwide Lifts opened a design and manufacturing facility in Syracuse, NY in 2018 to produce its most demanding designs. With an in-house team of electrical and mechanical engineers, we design distinctive, custom elevators that can fit any space. Old world style craftsmanship and skill are combined with the latest, high-tech equipment to fabricate elevators that are works of art. Our facility was assembled with one goal in mind: create custom elevators that nobody else dares to make. This is not a volume factory. This is a craftsman shop creating Artisan Elevators.

New challenges require fresh approaches and state-of-the-art designs. Artisan Elevators are as innovative as they are beautiful. Since the launch of the Syracuse facility, we have filed several new patents. If your project demands innovation, distinction, and customization, then Artisan Elevator is your answer.

Your dreams. Our expertise. One extraordinary elevator.
