Ellis & McDougall Lifts Ltd. was a small independent elevator manufacturer based in Glasgow, Scotland and was founded in 1964 by Kenneth McDougall. McDougall has been running a number of businesses for the past 45 years. Ellis & McDougall lifts was his most successful and widely respected company, employing 250 people with a turnover of £8 million.

Most of its installations can be found in and around Glasgow, particularly in public buildings such as libraries, hospitals and car parks as the company had a close relationship with the local authority. Many housing blocks in Glasgow still have Ellis & McD branded elevators. It was taken over by Kone in 1992, and the brand has subsequently disappeared.
