In 1984, brothers Samir and Nabil Abillama founded Mitsulift and Equipment S.A.L. as a strategic differentiation from their core industrial family heritage. The company specialized in selling, installing and servicing elevators, escalators and moving walks.
In 1992, at the end of the civil war in Lebanon, Mitsulift refocused on the reconstruction effort of rebuilding the capital Beirut, and became in 1996 the market leader in the Lebanese territory.
In 1999, Mitsulift expanded its operations into Cyprus through a partnership with Epiphaniou Group, a leading Cypriot business enterprise specialized in construction material.
The following year, in 2000, thanks to its startling success, Mitsulift Group developed into a joint-venture with Mitsubishi Electric Corporation in Japan and expanded into a leading regional company with operations in three additional countries: Mitsulift and Equipment Syria with the Attar family, Mitsulift Hellas in Greece and Cylift and Equipment in Cyprus with Epiphaniou Group, Mitsulift Industries in Jordan with the Said family and Mitsulift Nigeria with the Chaghoury family.
“Great things in business happen because of great people, and we certainly have an incredibly talented team of which I am very proud,” says Karim Abillama, Group Managing Director.
Mitsulift has invested its know-how and expertise over the years to become a leader in its field. The company’s innovative products have made it a solution provider for building moving systems, with state-ofthe- art equipments such as building maintenance units from European leader Atech and Entrance Revolving Doors from world leader Royal Boon Edam.
Mitsulift Group’s commitment to Elevating Standards of service excellence extends beyond the engineering and installation of the elevator. It is a long-term moving experience which continues well after the elevator is delivered.
