Lerch Bates is an international consulting services firm with 29 offices throughout North America, the Middle East, Asia and India. Since their founding in 1947 as the first independent elevator consulting firm in the US, they have added offices and capabilities around the world, bringing industry leading expertise and technology to their work with clients on diverse and challenging projects.

Their influence as innovators of design concepts is seen, as many of their “firsts” have become industry standards that can be recognized in many of the world’s tallest buildings.
