Modernization is his middle name

Meet Bill Walthes. Bill has been a fixture in the Greater Philadelphia Elevator Modernization Market for years. 40 of them to be exact. In the course of his career, Bill has overseen countless modernization projects with his keen mind for charting all the logistical and technical demands each one requires.

At Allied, Bill has transformed our Mod division. Recruiting top talent and overseeing the delivery of a range of multi-million dollar modernization projects. Just as a little background, Bill previously transformed the mod departments at ThyssenKrupp, Otis, and Amtech, into regional powerhouses. Earning a rock star reputation with consultants and inspectors along the way.

While you can’t hire him. You can congratulate him on his retirement and meet his amazing replacement, Mike Culhane.
