Montgomery in the News

When a shopping mall elevator in Abbotsford, Canada, got a shout-out on Vancity Elevators, a YouTube channel focused on vertical transportation, it caught the attention of the local media. The Abbotsford News website recently posted a story under the headline: “VIDEO: Abbotsford elevator praised on YouTube,” complete with link to the Vancity Elevators upload, which you can watch by clicking on the image above. The article says the elevator, a Montgomery hydraulic unit, was installed in 1975, nearly 45 years ago. It goes on to note that the Vancity Elevators post titles the video as “EPIC MOTOR!!,” with the article’s author surmising the “classic purr” was “pleasing to the user.” While Montgomery Elevator Co. may no longer be around, it’s nice to know that its elevators are still hard at work and appreciated by the riding public.
