LOS ANGELES, April 26, 2024-- Century Park Capital Partners (“Century Park”) is pleased to announce it has completed a majority recapitalization of Total Access Elevator, LLC (“Total Access Elevator”, “Total Access”, or the “Company”) in partnership with the Company’s management team and founders. Headquartered in Santa Fe Springs, CA, Total Access Elevator is a leading provider of commercial elevator modernization, maintenance, and repair services in the greater Los Angeles Area. The Company was founded in 2008 and has been owner-operated since inception, with all four of the Company’s owners currently active in the day-to-day management of the business. Each of the Company’s four owners will be retaining an ownership position and will continue to be actively involved in the business going forward.

Century Park has partnered with two experienced industry executives to develop an investment thesis in the elevator services sector. Both executives previously served as senior management team members of Otis, the world’s largest elevator OEM: Robert Williams, former Director of Otis Service Operations; and Randy Wilcox, former President of Otis Americas.
