About Us

Company Profile

Custom Elevator Interiors (CEI) was founded in 2001 by Tim Middlemiss, a certified elevator mechanic with extensive sales and management experience in the industry. He created a niche market for certified interior manufacturing and installation specialists through professionalism and dedication, which has allowed CEI to grow to be the leading expert in Western Canada.

CEI’s strong business principles and high quality work have resulted in repeated and increasing demand for its products and services. A strong commitment to not only meeting but exceeding the expectations of all of its clients is carried out by manufacturing and installing a first-rate product as well as by offering the highest level of customer service.

Adhering to a strict code of ethics and by investing strongly in its employees, CEI pursues excellence and perfection on a daily basis—in all areas of its operations. Schedules are tight.  Elevator shutdowns are critical.  CEI understands the time sensitivity on most projects and therefore strives to provide its services in short order, quickly and effectively.

With an in-house design team, an engineer on staff, many years of field experience in the vertical lift industry among its installers, and a group of sales consultants who manage a range of projects, CEI’s staff provide the tools and spend the time with clients from the point of conceiving a project to the point of completing the installation, and beyond.
