Elevator Giants Merge to Provide Better Service

Toronto, ON – A big merger in Canada’s east coast will mean improved elevator service in an industry that desperately needs it.

Toronto-based Solucore Inc., a leading North American elevator consultant, today announced its merger with Scotia Elevator Consulting Limited, a local Nova Scotia based elevator consulting firm.

Last year, CBC and other major Canadian news outlets reported on the increasing number of people being trapped in elevators, naming Ontario as one of the worst offenders, with firefighters receiving 4,461 calls for elevator extrication in 2015, up double from 2001.

While Solucore disputed a number of the numbers cited in the report, they are confident mergers such as these will help towards improving the service and quality of elevators in Canada.

“We use elevators as a part of every day life, and we can take them for granted until something goes wrong, but when it does it’s a very scary experience,” says Ray Eleid, Director of Strategic Development at Solucore. “We’re on a mission to provide improved elevator service nation-wide, and this merger goes a long way towards achieving that.”

Solucore already services hundreds of major commercial and residential properties across the country, while Scotia Elevator Consulting has a well-established presence in Atlantic Canada. The merger will mean faster and improved service, as well as a wider range of services, including inspections, engineering, consulting, cutting-edge automated maintenance and reporting systems, and more.

“By joining forces with Solucore, our firm will be able to deliver an improved product to our existing clients and provide a more immediate response to Solucore’s national clients that have properties in the region,” says Jamie MacDougall, President of Scotia Elevator Consulting. “Enhancing our services with Solucore’s products and tools is an exciting development for our company.”
