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. We may be new to the online world but we are not new to the lift industry. 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.
Simplex Elevators Pty Ltd.
In 1976, Allan Curtis bought Simplex Elevators and has committed his life to creating a service that focuses on providing access solutions for both the residential and commercial markets. Allan is well-renowned in the Australian lift industry, due to his credible reputation for providing an incomparable service to his clients. Throughout Allan’s career, he has been a member of the Australian Standards Board helping to form the direction of accessibility within the residential and commercial Lift industry, as well as travelling around the world, providing installations, maintenance, modernisation and repair services to varying lift equipment.
Between 1992 and in 1997 Simplex Elevators was contracted to supply and install the Disability Access lift within the new Australian Chancery building located in the Diplomatic Enclave area of Pakistan’s capital, Islamabad. Between 1992 and 1995 Simplex Elevators supplied and installed lift products for various new and existing sites within the mining infrastructure at the Grasberg mining operations in Irian Jaya, now known as West Papua, Indonesia. Simplex Elevators also partnered with a team of Indonesian technicians and installed a Simplex Service Lift into the shopping centre that was being built in the mine support town of Tembagapura, Irian Jaya.
For 10 years, Simplex Elevators was involved on a full time basis with Australian Airlines, now known as Qantas. They carried out both Electrical & Mechanical maintenance to the Baggage Conveying systems including electrical maintenance works within Brisbane and other regional terminals. In 1990, the team made mechanical and electrical alterations and additions to the Baggage Conveying systems in the Common user terminal.
In 1988 Simplex Elevators partnered with Brisbane’s Domestic Airport Terminal and were involved with the installation of the “Loderway”, a prototype, world first, patented design, accelerating moving walkway. This piece of equipment led to the satellite gates of the then, Australian Airlines Domestic terminal in Brisbane.
In addition to these international and innovative projects, Simplex Elevators have provided installation, repair and maintenance services to all types of people and businesses, including equipment in local cinemas, taverns and schools. No matter the job, whether it be the installation of a service lift in Indonesia, or providing on-going maintenance to your grandmother’s stairlift, we provide the same, high-quality, customer-centred service we always have.
Mocon Pty Ltd.
For the past 16 years, Mocon has been operating in Queensland as an independent, family-owned business. Mocon was established by second-generation elevator enthusiasts, Maika Ter Horst and Hank Ter Horst Jnr, who followed in the footsteps of renowned international safety auditor (and father) Hank Ter Horst. In 2015, Hank Jnr resigned from Mocon to support Hank Snr’s Elevator Inspection and Testing Services.
Over the last 16 years, as well as installing, servicing and repairing lift equipment all over Queensland, Mocon has installed elevators throughout Sydney, Victoria and Canberra. As one of Queensland’s largest lift contracting companies, Mocon was commissioned to install all of the elevators into IKEA Underwood and is one of QBuild’s relied upon lift service providers.
In 2016, Maika as the sole director of Mocon started to work together with Allan and Simplex Elevators towards expanding access solution services between both businesses.
4 years later…
We are excited to announce that Mocon and Simplex Elevators have officially joined forces to better service both our residential and commercial partners.
With Maika now being the sole director of Simplex Elevators, Allan has stepped down into a consulting role, providing the Simplex team with his invaluable industry and client knowledge.

We still offer the same competitively priced, high-quality equipment, even though we do look a little different.
We still have exclusive European contacts who are committed to ensuring all designs are reflective of the latest technologies.
