2012 Marks 10 Year Anniversary for PVE


Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators were first introduced to the Elevator industry 10 years ago come this August.  Formally displayed for the first time at the 2002 National Association of Elevator Contractor's show in Las Vegas, NV, there was no question there was an obvious interest and demand for the product.  Having started with just one model of a Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator, PVE's founder and current President/CEO, Juan de Ledebur says "We are excited about reaching the 10 year mark and pleased to now offer three models and a complete line of color options that satisfy the requirement of almost any residential elevator project throughout the world."   With over 4,000 units installed in over 55 countries worldwide, Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators have become well known and a highly sought after product .  PVE is looking forward to continued growth and success for many years to come!




Direct Plunger




Of course, electricity is used for the elevators that race to the top of today's skyscrapers. The fastest and longest ride in the U.S. is to the top of the Sears Tower in Chicago. The speeds reach about 1,800 ft. per minute, or about 20 mph. It takes less than a minute to reach the 103rd floor.
