MP (MacPuarsa) Lifts is a Spanish elevator company based in Seville, Spain.


The history of MP Lifts can be traced back to 1970 when founder Valentín de Madariaga Oya founded Mechanismos y Accesorios S.A. (MAC) as a manufacturer of mechanical elevator parts. In November 1994, MAC bought Puertas Aragón S.A. (known as Puarsa), an elevator manufacturer. Three years later both companies merged and became Mac Phuarsa S.A.

  • In some parts of Spain, MP elevators are distributed by Embarba Lifts and LAGI.
  • MP elevators installed by third party agents or distributors usually bears the logo or name of the installer on the button panels, regardless of location. Some installations may also have both MP's and the installer's logo. For example, in the United Kingdom, MP elevators installed by Pickerings Lifts and Stannah Lifts have Pickerings's and Stannah's logo respectively.
  • Possibly in the 1990s, Mecanismos y Accesorios (the predecessor of MP Lifts) made push buttons for Cenia Ascensores (and also Thyssen) as their B12 series[4][5]. MP's Compact series buttons are based on those buttons.
  • Its domestic competitor is Orona.
