Allow Us To Introduce Ourselves

Fred Gassert

I am the owner, along with my wife Carol, of Home Elevator Company. I started in the Elevator Business back in 1977 working for Montgomery Elevator Company in Wichita, KS. I worked there as a helper for one year and was promoted to temporary mechanic and worked two years with a service route maintaining commercial elevators. I went back to school and graduated with a diploma in accounting. I worked as a computer programmer and accountant and Carol and I started our family with Andrea. After she turned two we decided we could use some extra money and I bought a couple of use stairlifts, refurbished them and resold them. That was the beginning of Home Elevator Company. We did it on the side for 8 years and then decided to jump in full time. Been doing it ever since. We've installed over 200 elevators and even more stair lifts, all of which we still service. I've seen a lot of manufacturers come and go, as well as competition, but we are still here. Growing to serve the community.

I have been working for Home Elevator Company full time since May of 2012. I am a graduate of Wichita State University with a Bachelors of Arts in Women's Studies and a minor in Sociology. My parents are the owners of HEC so I have been around the elevator business since I was a kid. I am a sales associate, office assistant and have worked in the field on occasion. I have enjoyed learning more about the elevator industry. The best part of my job is meeting with customers and finding the right product for them. I am excited to see what the future will bring for me and everyone here at HEC.

I am owner and office manager for Home Elevator Company. In 1983 my husband and I started Home Elevator Company part time and in 1993 we made it our full time business. Through out the years we have raised 3 daughters and because of HEC we were able to have more time for them. They are all grown now and I get to enjoy my 3 grandchildren. After a few years away from HEC I'm back and excited to see what this company can do.
