Fox Business Segment Features New SnapCab Product

For nearly 25 years, elevator contractors have turned to SnapCab to design and manufacture interiors for both new installations and modernizations. The company has worked hard to make it easy to find simple solutions for customized cab walls and ceilings, engineered for quick installation. It took dedication and a certain kind of genius to develop the product line, and that genius has resulted in a new offering from the company: the Pod. A growing trend in workplaces today is the open-office concept. Instead of individual rooms or walled-off cubicles, the open office brings workers into a communal space of tables, couches and countertops that promotes collaboration and is designed for our mobile culture (think laptops, tablets and smartphones). But, there are times — such as when making an important phone call or meeting with a client — that having a little privacy and seclusion is a good thing. That’s where the Pod, a standalone quiet  room, comes into the picture. The producers at Fox Business liked the idea enough to feature it on their program, “Inside The Blueprint,” which you can watch by clicking on the video link above.

Whenever I see a broken elevator I tend to stair

Inspiration can come from anywhere, even in the workplace elevator lol.

I once lost my balance on an escalator and fell down the stairs for 2 hours.

I would do anything for love but I won’t do that. (walk up a broken escalator)

A permanent ladder is being installed to get to the summit of Everest. I’m still not tempted. I’ll wait till an escalator is put in!

Police Blotter – Salamanca, N.Y.

A New York man was arrested for allegedly breaking an elevator button at a casino on January 5th.

The Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office says 21-year-old Justin Feldman broke an elevator button at Seneca Allegany Casino. Feldman was arrested on a warrant for fourth-degree criminal mischief.

Feldman was issued an appearance ticket to return to the City of Salamanca Court, this week.

Destruction of property is a serious matter but it is rare to actually see that someone was arrested for breaking an elevator button in the news headlines.  After having conversations with industry members over the years, I have heard some very interesting stories about the things that people do to elevators.  So, feel free to share your story about the weird, not so good and funny things that you have seen while in the business.
