Genesis Elevator Company Rises to the Top

June 5, 2013


Genesis Elevator Company, Inc., a 2013 Small Business of the Year finalist, has shown its commitment to the Cobb community, its commitment to its staff and its commitment to its core values. Dedication to excellence has made Genesis a leader in local, national and global marketplaces as the company continues to grow.

Genesis has been in the construction industry since 2008. The company focuses on creating commercial and residential elevators, specialty lifts, escalators and moving walks. Because it has such a diverse client base, Genesis prides itself on three core values: operating with high integrity, focusing on customer service and offering more options for the best solutions.

This full-service company serves three markets: commercial construction, residential and service/modernizations. To attend to these markets, Genesis built an experienced team. The staff comes from a variety of manufacturers to provide the company with expertise for most manufacturers’ equipment. More than 85 percent of the company’s staff was without a job when hired. Today, Genesis has 33 full-time employees and 9 part-time employees who serve more than 580 customers.

In 2012, the company donated more than 500 community service hours and $6,800 to nonprofit organizations. Genesis supports MUST Ministries, the Atlanta Community Food Bank, Hearts for Honduras and many more charitable organizations in the Cobb community.

Genesis has become a leader in an industry dominated by global firms, as it demonstrates a commitment to excellence and customer service, works to improve the industry, provides struggling families with jobs, and maintains integrity while continuing to grow. In October 2012, Elevator World magazine recognized Genesis for its work and commitment to community.
