A.R.E. Energy-Saving Lifts



Home   >   Company >   Our story

Our Mission

"Our Mission is to make innovative battery-operated elevating platforms and elevators that save energy and sustain the environment".

Our Story

In 2001, Franco Antonelli, after 40 years of industry experience, launched an ambitious project: to produce a high-quality, energy-saving elevator that was both safe and technologically innovative.

An elevator that would slash energy consumption and would generate part of the energy needed to operate it.

Today, that project is an internationally successful business: A.R.E. – Ascensori a Risparmio Energetico (Energy-Saving Elevators).

Our Vision

"Our Vision is to help cut global energy consumption by providing elevators that require only 6% of the energy currently needed by efficient electric elevators".

We wish to improve the environment by replacing traditional hydraulic elevators and the more efficient electric elevators, which consume 10 Kilowatts and 5 Kilowatts respectively, with elevators that consume only 300 Watts. We also regenerate part of the energy our elevators need.

Our Values

Our values are:

  • Integrity – we are true to our word;
  • Safety – we make safe products safely;
  • Innovation – we transform our industry for the benefit of our clients;
  • Environmental Sustainability – we create products that improve the environment

"We don't just make elevation systems; we create solutions for people who consider energy saving and eco-sustainability decisive factors when choosing what to install in their home and work environment".

Who We Are Today

From a small local reality, thanks to our exclusive technology, we have quickly grown to become a major player on the Italian market in the supply of energy-saving elevator systems.

Today, we operate at an international level in many of those markets, where sustainability, pollution reduction, and energy regeneration are social and economic priorities.

It is precisely the relevance of these aspects that ensures that more and more customers choose our technological solutions in Italy and abroad, identifying them as the best - if not the only ones - available in the industry.
