Who We Are

The Elevator Company, LLC has over 90 years of combined experience in the installation and service of various types of elevators. Our commitment to “Helping Others – Help Themselves” started in 1979 when Bud and Martha Hulgan founded Elevator Maintenance and Repair Co., Inc. (EMR) in Chattanooga, TN with their three sons – based on this principal. EMR specialized in commercial, residential and mobility equipment and was awarded the prestigious Chamber of Commerce Small Business Award. In 2001, EMR sold its commercial division and because of the sell was forced to change the company name – thus, American Elevator Co. Everyone at American Elevator Co. understands that the difference between buying a product, and making a purchase – comes well after the sale. We want our customers to feel confident – not only in our products, but in our service and commitment “Helping Others – Help Themselves”. Our customers have confidence in knowing they have made the right decision when they work with The Elevator Co., LLC.  Please allow us to “Help You!”

An old service elevator company will soon be the home of a place that provides service for veterans. The land at the corner of Peeple’s street and East 11th Street in Chattanooga will soon be the “Chattanooga Unite Veterans Resource Center.”
American Elevator relocated in the early 2000’s, JoeDee Hulgan and family members presented the site to the Southeast Tennessee Veterans Coalition Wednesday morning.
The conditions of the donated land are that the site will be for the sole purposes of serving veterans. Southeast Tennessee Veterans Coalition plans to provide services including transitional housing, on-site counseling, a group room, healthy recreation and therapeutic gardening. The Chattanooga Unite Veterans Resource Center concept is to be proactive and treat a veteran on release from active duty so that homeless doesn’t occur.
Contractors began the land clearing process and removing debris from the vacant lot.
No specific timeline for construction, but the coalition hopes to have this center built in the next year
