Open in 52 countries, IKEA is home to affordable décor, appliances, ready-to-assemble furniture and the well-renowned (and delicious) Swedish meatballs. Pending the Grand Opening of the Logan IKEA Super Store in 2006, Maika Ter Horst, Simplex Director, was contracted to lead a small team of lift technicians to install the 11 commercial elevators.

This was the largest IKEA store in the Southern Hemisphere at the time.

The are heavy duty, designed to transport people and stock. It was a great job to be a part of,” said Maika Ter Horst.
