COMPANY OVERVIEW

Marine Innovations is a family-owned and operated business built on integrity, trust and expertise. We’ve been in the inclined elevator industry since 1987 and have become recognized as a trusted resource for engineering and safety advice among industry publications, architects, independent contractors and regulatory councils.

Because we have such high standards for our hillside lift products, we can confidently offer the best warranty in the incline elevator industry: 15 years for structural components, three years for non-structural components (gearbox, motor, brakes) and one year for electrical parts and components. Plus, for those who want added peace of mind or have high-traffic commercial properties, we offer service and maintenance support to ensure many years of safe and reliable use.

We recognize that every time you use your inclined elevator, you are trusting us with your most precious cargo—your family and friends—and we take that seriously. Which is why we build each unit with the same attention to safety as the one we built for our own family. You can take comfort in the fact that we are the only hillside tram company with in-house manufacturing which means we’re in complete control from start to finish. Every piece of galvanized steel, cable, bolt and screw has to meet our quality standards or it doesn’t become part of a Marine Innovations funicular.

If you’d like to know more about our company or talk with one of us, please give us a call. We’d be happy to answer your questions and help you make the most of your property by adding an inclined elevator or hillside tram.
