Solucore Inc. merger with Seaway elevates national presence

Toronto, Ont. – Leading North American elevator consultant Solucore Inc. has joined forces with Ottawa-based Seaway Elevator Consultants to boost services and enhance customer experience across Ontario.

The merger strengthens Toronto-based Solucore’s well-established client base and better leverages its strategy for national growth and expansion. The move will give Seaway access to Solucore’s proven IT systems to deliver enhanced robust reporting and more immediate maintenance monitoring response for its elevator and escalator consulting services.

“This merger is a win-win for both companies and – more importantly – for our customers,” says Ray Eleid, Director of Strategic Development at Solucore. “This allows us to build on each others’ strengths and utilize our own unique capabilities in the field of elevator and escalator consulting.”

Ian Richardson, President of Seaway Elevator Consultants, says Solucore’s strong national presence and reputation for innovation made for a tempting partnership for both businesses. “Solucore is recognized as a leader in the elevator consulting industry, within Ontario and across Canada as well. We share an emphasis on reliability and safety that together will become an invaluable resource to our customers and the people who use their elevators and escalators.”

Richardson will manage the Ottawa and Region business for Solucore as Regional Vice-President. Seaway will continue to operate and service its existing contracts and eventually under Solucore’s Ottawa Region.
