Mowrey Elevator is Going Up

Charlotte Crane | 7/20/2011

Timothy Mowrey, chairman and CEO of Mowrey Elevator, is building a $1.5-million headquarters in his city block-sized manufacturing complex in downtown Marianna— a move he's confident will dovetail with an economic rebound.

Three years ago Mowrey Elevator, the largest privately owned elevator manufacturer in the Southeast, was making and installing some 400 elevators a year. This year, it expects to do around 100.

Plans include an R&D center for new product lines. Mowrey wants to boost employment from 125 to its previous 200. "Business is going to come back,'' he says.

What your doctor won’t disclose

Wouldn’t you want to know if your doctor was a paid spokesman for a drug company? Or held personal beliefs incompatible with the treatment you want? Right now, in the US at least, your doctor simply doesn’t have to tell you about that.
