Colley Elevator Company in Bensenville recently announced its second consecutive win of the Elevator Industry (Ellie) Award for Best Contractor -- North.

Presented by Elevator World, Inc., the premier publisher for the North American elevator industry, the award is designed to celebrate companies that "go above and beyond for their customers, employees, communities, and the industry as a whole." Now in their third year, the Ellie Awards have become the go-to source to recognize elite companies in the industry.


Colley Elevator focuses on low to mid-rise elevator maintenance, modernizations and installations. The company has more than 1700 elevators in its portfolio and focuses on condominiums, educational institutions, financial institutions and municipal buildings. The company was one of six finalists for the 2020 award; nominations were open to all contractors from 12 Northern and Midwestern states.

"It is an honor to win this prestigious award and a testament of our commitment to the customer. There has been so much uncertainty this year that it was great to see our company recognized for our common goal", says Craig Zomchek, the company's Managing Partner, "Our philosophy is to hire the best mechanics and give them the time, resources and freedom to work on the equipment. It is a simple formula which has enabled us to excel through the years."
