Testing and Inspections
The frequency and type of elevator inspections required for your equipment vary by state.

Nevertheless, Kencor, Inc. Elevator Systems can help you navigate your state’s requirements and assist you in meeting compliance for your equipment.
Generally, you can expect to receive notification from your state about inspection. You may choose to contact Kencor, Inc. at that time to assist you in arranging for the inspection, which includes Kencor, Inc.’s setting up an inspection appointment and providing you with an estimate and information for the upcoming test. Upon your agreement, Kencor, Inc. will perform the required testing witnessed by a State-approved third party inspector third party inspector to avoid any conflict of interest.

He was there in less than an hour after she placed the call. He always does an amazing job. He knows exactly what’s wrong with the elevator all the time, he’s great at what he does. He’s pleasant, delightful, and so kind towards her parents. He’s a real God-send.
