Epco (Elevator Products Corporation) is a New Jersey-based company that manufactures equipment for other elevator companies, mainly generic fixtures such as pushbuttons, floor indicators, and fixtures chassis for most of the elevator companies in America.

History

Epco was established in 1955. In 1980, Epco was bought out by Westinghouse, which then was acquired by Schindler in 1989-1990.

Trivia

  • Schindler's North American elevator company is in partnership with Epco. In fact, three buttons used on Schindler elevators have actually been derived from Epco, which include the rectangular MT button (derived from formally Schindler Haughton M-Series and nowadays Schindler M-Line), the circular-oval RT button (derived from Epco WGH Signature Series), and the touch-sensitive surface-mount button (derived from Epco Oval Inch-Line).
