Beginnings

Our MD, Gerry Wallace, started his career in the lift industry as an Apprentice Lift Engineer in 1965 when companies manufactured most of the components in house. This provided a sound knowledge of engineering manufacturing methods and provided a unique insight into the development of lift design from the ground up.

Following his experience with Eastop Lifts in running their Edinburgh office, by 1986 he was employed as a senior fitter/trouble-shooter with Otis Elevators where he completed his technical education achieving Btec In Lift and Escalator technology to distinction level with NALM (National Association of Lift Manufacturers). Gerry then attended Glasgow University's Business School with the aim of forming his own lift engineering company – G.E.M. Lift services Ltd.
