PVE52 to be featured on DIY Network's Vanilla Ice Project Season 2 


PVE 1  


Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators and PVE Distributor, Southeast Elevator have teamed up to install a two stop PVE52 on an upcoming episode of the Vanilla Ice Project Season 2. The two South Florida based companies were approached by Rob Van Winkle (a.k.a. Vanilla Ice), a local South Floridian, to assist with a PVE in his project/TV show where he buys foreclosed homes and fixes them up to re-sell. The featured PVE model will be a two stop PVE52 and was installed in October 2011. Be on the lookout for the second season to air sometime in early 2012.
