PT. Louserindo Megah Permai, or better known by its trademark brand Louser Lift, is an elevator company based in Jakarta, Indonesia. It specializes in production of passenger elevators, bed/hospital elevators, freight elevators, panoramic elevators, home elevators and dumbwaiters.

History

Louser was founded on May 18, 1987 by three former elevator engineers from Citas Engineering, the sole distributor of Otis elevators in Indonesia at that time[1]. Initially they only focused on making freight elevators. In 1988, it joined Asosiasi Produsen dan Pemborong Lift dan Eskalator (APPLE) Indonesia (English: Lift and Escalator Manufacturer and Contractor Association). In 1991, Louser became the only sole distributor of Haisung elevator machines from South Korea in Indonesia, and at the same time the company started marketing passenger elevators.

Louser is currently based in Jakarta. It has branches located in Bandung, Yogyakarta, and Surabaya. It also has sole agents in Semarang (PT. Sinar Mentari Pagi Cerah) and Palembang (PT. Bumi Sriwijaya Lestari). A factory is located in Cipondoh, Tangerang, Banten.

Trivia

SJEC-Louser name JKT ID

SJEC-Louser name on a SJEC escalator (installed by Louser) in Jakarta, Indonesia.

  • At one time Louser was a distributor of SJEC escalators and moving walks, and these products were installed under the "SJEC-LOUSER" name[3]. Louser did not distribute SJEC elevators, as those products are already handled by another distributor PT. Prawita Karya. It is unknown if Louser still distributes SJEC escalators and moving walkways.
  • Louser is known to use Samil Eltec elevator control systems, LCD floor indicators and possibly other components for their newer installations and modernization. In addition, Louser is a distributor of Samil Eltec products.
