An Independent Industry Leader Focused on Service
Southwest Elevator Company is a leading independent provider of elevator repair, maintenance, modernization, and new construction services. The company was founded in Fort Worth, Texas by current chief executive officer and third generation elevator contractor Tom Cavinder. In addition to our leadership team, Southwest Elevator Company is comprised of numerous elevator repair technicians certified by the National Association of Elevator Contractors (NAEC) and who receive ongoing education throughout the year.
As a small company, we believe that service is everything. Whereas other elevator companies provide standardized, out-of-the-box services and solutions, Southwest Elevator Company provides only customized solutions for our clients’ needs. We tailor every repair and maintenance program, modernization initiative, and new construction project according to our clients’ budget parameters, project details, and preferences — ensuring that their elevator system meets their goals now and for years to come.
Southwest Elevator Company was founded in 2003 in Fort Worth, Texas, where the company remains headquartered nearly 20 years later. Our CEO, Tom Cavinder, comes from a long line of family elevator construction and service providers in the Midwest and Southern regions. Tom built Southwest Elevator company around the principles of superior service and creating a family-like atmosphere. He is actively involved in every new client project.
“Southwest Elevators is a company that cares, and that starts with the CEO, Tom. He ensures it continues with every person at Southwest Elevator.” — Robert Earley, JSP Health Network
Southwest Elevator is proud to be an independently owned elevator company and plans to stay that way throughout its next phase of growth. We are also proud to utilize union labor for our elevator projects, ensuring that only skilled and qualified technicians and other workers are the ones entrusted with repairing, maintaining, modernizing, or building elevator systems.
Taking Our Growth to the Next Level
In late 2020, Southwest Elevator merged with Action Elevator Company, expanding our services to the Baltimore–Washington metropolitan and Delmarva Peninsula areas. Southwest also recently acquired Avery Elevator — another Washington, DC-area elevator maintenance and repair services provider. To expand our reach in Western and Southeastern U.S., Southwest Elevator has also opened two new branch locations in Las Vegas, Nevada and Miami, Florida.
