What is the AEA?

Founded in 1961, as the Lift Manufacturers' Association of Australia (LMAA), it became a major force in assisting local companies to address the dynamic changes that were occurring with the design and construction of lifts and escalators.

In 1981 the LMAA changed its name to the Australian Elevator Association (AEA) and in the same year became incorporated.
