The International Union of Elevator Constructors (IUEC) Local One today welcomed Action Elevator Inc. to its roster of signatory contractor partners.
“As elevator maintenance and modernization needs evolve, Local One is constantly thinking about what is next for the industry, as well as what is best for our hardworking members – with issues including safety, retirement security, and continued education always on our radar,” said IUEC Local One Business Manager Lenny Legotte. “Our signatory contractors are a vital piece of our system. When they succeed, our members thrive, and vice versa. Action Elevator Inc. is a smart, family-owned company with a forward-thinking mentality. The owners knew that signing with Local One was an investment in not only the company’s employees – but in the company in its entirety.”
Headquartered in Fairfield, New Jersey, Action Elevator Inc. is a fully licensed, independently owned company offering maintenance, installation, modernization and repair services.
“Our family understands that, in this business, a single decision can impact the entire trajectory of a company – and this was one of those decisions,” said Action Elevator Inc. President Richard Trovato. “As a company owner, it is my responsibility to respect the best interests of my workers – and to do right by them. Signing with Local One was a no-brainer, as it made sense from a business standpoint and also for our employees.”
Organized more than 127 years ago, IUEC Local One represents more than 3,000 highly trained, certified members who specialize in installing, servicing, repairing, and modernizing elevators, escalators, and other conveyances.
“Working with Rich Trovato and his team at Action Elevator was a refreshing experience,” said IUEC Local One Organizer Brian Houser. “Today’s signing demonstrates the company’s desire to invest in the most highly trained, safest workforce to service its valued customers. Action Elevator’s already talented workers will participate in the most extensive elevator industry education and safety program available.”
