Our History

Venture Elevator Inc. is an independently owned and operated full service elevator/ escalator company with its headquarters located in Prince George, BC. Operating since 2004, Venture Elevator provides maintenance, service, installation and repairs to all makes of elevators, escalators, power walks and accessibility lifts. Venture Elevator was founded on the premise of providing the customer with “Proper, Old-Fashioned Maintenance and Service”.

2004 – 2008

Venture Elevator Opens its Doors…

When Venture Elevator first began operations in March 2004, we were fortunate enough to be awarded a tender for maintenance at the Bennet Dam, which is one of the largest elevator installation in Northern BC as well, if not western Canada.  We did not squander this privilege.  Once awarded, we took full advantage of all our resources while continuing to place strong focus on all our
customer’s needs.

Since inception, Venture Elevator has been fortunate enough to attract hard working staff members who hold to the same philosophy as the Venture Elevator founding members: cohesive team effort in all things, good service, diligence, honesty and fair play, combine to form a harmonious work force,  striving for common goals, as well as, encouraging growth and success in one another.

At Venture Elevator, customer service is a top priority. No matter what the scale of the elevator or escalator project is, we can deliver, and to date have delivered all, in a
timely fashion.



2008 – 2012

We Continue to Grow…

We have constructed and installed approximately 150 of our own elevating devices.  These include numerous
hydraulic elevators, handicap lifts, freight elevators,
escalators and Lu/La lifts. 

We have expanded into new markets in Central BC and
Venture Elevator was the first in western Canada to install two truly non-proprietary, third party MRL
(machine-room-less) elevators.  With the reputation that we can handle the “big dam”, we have since been awarded many hotels, seniors’ residences, hospitals, shopping malls, apartment buildings, all facilities for the City of Prince George, as well as, the complete campuses of the College of New Caledonia, Grande Prairie Regional
College, all facilities at the City of Grande Prairie, the
Edmonton International Airport, and Executive Hotels in the Greater Edmonton Area. 

We are proud of becoming one of BC’s only certified wind farm specialists, building the first wind farm in Northern BC. 

2012 – Present

Rapid Growth for Venture…

Venture Elevator is currently comprised of numerous
dedicated people who take pride in their workmanship.  Our current service area stretches from Williams Lake, north to the Yukon border, east to Edmonton, and west to the Pacific Ocean.

Venture Elevator now maintains the majority of the
elevating devices located within the city limits of Prince George, including the majority of the bigger bank
buildings. A few years ago we also ventured into installations of lifts inside wind towers.  To-date, we have
installed and maintain 127 of these lifts. We have been privileged to undertake major modernizations at
Mackenzie Pulp in Mackenzie, the two passenger
elevators at the TELUS Building in Prince George,
University of Northern BC, CN Centre, and the completely “out of the box” modernization of the two elevators
located at the Scotia Bank Building; an incredibly new,
dynamic, and proudly successful undertaking.
