The Simplex History and Services

Simplex Elevators has been lifting the standard since 1976.


Based in Queensland's "The Gabba", Simplex Elevators is an Australian, family-owned business that specialises in the installation, modernisation, maintenance, and repair of all types of lift and access equipment.

With over 44 years of service as Simplex Elevators, you can trust our team of highly qualified business specialists and technicians with all your lifting and access needs.

Allan Curtis bought Simplex Elevators in 1976, committing his life to creating a service focused on providing access solutions for the residential and commercial markets. Well-renowned in the Australian lift industry, Allan has a reputation for providing an incomparable service to his clients.

After over four decades of service, Allan has stepped down into a consulting role, making his invaluable industry knowledge and expertise accessible to our technicians today.
