Vertical Vision LLC

Three local certified elevator mechanics have developed a patent and a business plan for an elevator that doesn't need a machine room.

William P. Block Sr., John M. Phillips II and William P. Block Jr. work for Landmark Elevator in Hagerstown. The three made their debut as Vertical Vision LLC during the National Association of Elevator Contractors annual convention and exposition earlier this year in Dallas.


Vertical Vision LLC said it will begin beta testing the newest member of the elevator family in Hagerstown in 2009.

Companies in Europe have been installing MRL (machine-room-less) elevators for more than 15 years, but codes in the United States have only recently been changed to allow them to be installed here.
