SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Urban Elevator Service, one of the largest independent elevator companies in the United States, today announced its acquisition of Guardian Elevator Mechanical Services. Guardian Elevator is a full-service elevator contractor specializing in installing, modernizing, repairing, and maintaining all types of vertical transportation equipment, and has been serving clients across metropolitan San Diego since 2005. Urban Elevator completed the acquisition through its subsidiary Urban Elevator Service CA.
