In the year of 1971, Warren Watt decided to start a company building elevators. Finally Eastern Elevators was the name chosen.
To start a company that could manufacture elevators, certain criteria had to be met and a State Government Department named 'Department of Industrial Relations - Lift Section' was the body which had the ability to give the permission to start manufacturing.
In the month of November, 1971, EASTERN was now officially able to manufacture elevators in compliance with the standard designs as approved,
On 22nd February, 1972, Eastern Elevators Pty Limited was incorporated, given the registration number 141846 and continued to be innovative in its design of elevators. These designs were for the standard Drum Drive Passenger Lift, Screw Drive Passenger Lift, Traction Drive Passenger Lift and Hydraulic Passenger Lift.
In April of 1972, the first Passenger Lift, being a Drum Drive, was put into The Big River Hotel in Grafton, Northern New South Wales.
