About ECR

Over 30 years of elevator cab renovation experience and service

Elevator Cab Renovations (ECR) was established in 1987 and is located in Ottawa, Ontario. Initially the company designed, manufactured, and installed custom cab interiors for local elevator companies and contractors. Now ECR has expanded its market to include clients in dozens of cities across Canada and the United States.

In 2003, to meet the demand of an expanding North American market, ECR developed and introduced the patented A-Look™ Panel Fitment System: an easy to order and install cab interior. The product consists of an aluminium extrusion system used to lock the panels together providing a structurally sound web that connects to the cab shell.

In 2015, ECR again expanded its product line with the patent pending C-Look™ Panel Fitment System: a solution that is also easy to order and install but which has a gap between panels and allows panels to be reversible for twice the life!

ECR manufactures all cab interior components in-house for high quality control. The production plant consists of full metal, wood, paint, and glass facilities. With State of the art computer-controlled production equipment, management software, and vigorous project management protocols, ECR maintains outstanding quality and reliable delivery schedules.
