About Us

Project Management Team
Once a project is signed, it is placed into the control of our experienced team of professionals. It's their sole responsibility to assume control of the project and see it through to its conclusion. McKinley does not burden its sales representatives with trying to be experts at the coordination of projects. Each product area has its own project team that is dedicated to knowing the needs of the product and has multiple years of experience in anticipating and solving problems as they occur. They will carry the project from the drawing approval stage, through the factory ordering and manufacturing, shipment, and installation completion. When State Elevator inspections and permits are required, our field supervisors have first- hand experience with the requirements of each product and can intelligently guide this final step in the process. This is where working with professionals makes a difference!
