The Rise of a Corporation

When looking for reliable elevator companies in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania, our customers have known for decades that Liberty Elevator Corporation is second to none. Liberty would not be the company it is today without the entrepreneurial ideas of George Gordon Muttart. George Gordon Muttart founded National Elevator in 1960, which provided comprehensive elevator service to customers along the North East Coast. In 1987, Liberty Elevator Corporation emerged, with Douglas K. Muttart, after the corporation completed the historic elevator installation in The Statue of Liberty.

Liberty Elevator Corporation Today

Twenty Five years after Doug Sr. completed the historic elevator installation during the Statue's centennial celebrations, Liberty Elevator Corporation was awarded the prestigious honor of installing Lady Liberty's three new elevators during the National Park Service's 2011's "Life and Safety Upgrades." Specializing in preventative maintenance programs, modernization, cab refurbishments and new installations, Liberty remains one of the largest independently owned and operated elevator companies in the Northeast. Since 1960, Liberty Elevator Corporation has provided vertical transportation to a variety of Fortune 500 customers. Today, the corporation remains family owned and operated with its headquarters in Paterson, New Jersey.

In 2018, Liberty Elevator Corporation was recognized as the Best Family-Owned Business in the elevator industry by Elevator World publications, as voted by customers and peers in the Industry. Douglas J. Muttart, President, reflected on his family's long-standing reputation in the industry: "Liberty has sustained and grown despite uncertain economic times. This is due in part to the strong foundation we have built at Liberty and our dedicated team of employees. The Liberty crew shares the same ideals and work ethic with those embodied by my grandfather 55 years ago. The commitment to quality and customer service has helped Liberty Elevator to sustain its focus through three generations."
