2013 Marks 11 Years for PVE

Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators were first introduced to the Elevator industry 11 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 that there was an obvious interest and demand for the product.  Having started out 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 11 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 as many as 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 with all of you for many years to come!

Though buses were still running to take people to work and many offices had sufficient natural lighting to make some work possible, the blackout shut off one electrical device without which the modern city is completely helpless: the elevator.
