Formula Systems is a world-leader in the design and manufacture of elevator door protection and speech systems. Established by engineers Peter Philipps and Peter Allen in 1974, parent company Airdri soon became a leader in automated sensor technology originally engineered for its automatic hand dryers.
The company recognised quickly the opportunity that its expertise in sensor technology could bring to the elevator industry and therefore established Formula Systems in 1983.
In 2006 Formula Systems North America opened in Chicago and is now firmly established as a leading supplier of safety edges to all major elevator manufacturers and consultants.
Product design is carried out in the company’s UK headquarters in Oxford. The company’s elevator products are manufactured by Formula Optics Technology in Yuyao, China – a joint venture between the two companies.
Formula Systems works in partnership with a global network of distributors. It has worked tirelessly to establish longstanding relationships with both distributors and customers and is continually seeking to expand its distributor network throughout Europe and Asia.
2019 has seen a significant investment in R&D ensuring that Formula Systems continues to stay ahead of the game. It strives to build upon its envied reputation for excellent customer service and unrivalled innovation in the design of code compliant products that are fully compatible with the latest elevator designs. The company continuously monitors its approach to new product design and the latest quality procedures. It’s proud of its outstanding safety record respected throughout the elevator industry.
The company holds full ISO 9001/2 accreditation in addition to many international approvals including UL, CSA, VDE and offers product warranties ranging from 3 to 5 years. Formula Systems’ ongoing investment in design development guarantees its customers high quality and innovative elevator products which are ideally suited for fitting as original equipment and for refurbishment projects.
