Elevation staff member Suzanne McCoy will serve as the main contact within the U.K.

Bruce MacKinnon, “Elevator World, Inc., saw this as an opportunity to fully represent the U.K. lift industry and build upon Elevation’s 24-year history. As an organization, we are excited to begin working and meeting with the local industry to better understand how we can help their businesses, while providing the relevant and trustworthy news for which Elevator World is known.”
