Old School Craftsmanship

In 1888, a master carpenter named Duffy Matot founded Matot, Inc. on the north side of Chicago. Duffy’s vision was to provide refrigeration equipment and functional dumbwaiters to the many taverns and shops throughout the area. As the years passed, Matot grew along with the city, meeting the demands of the burgeoning population.

Duffy’s growing company weathered the great Depression and performed Department of Defense work during the two world wars. After World War II, the company began to shift its manufacturing and sales emphasis to electric dumbwaiters and other types of vertical material handling equipment.

Matot counts Otis Elevator as one of its earliest elevator industry clients.  Today, Otis, along with Schindler, Kone and Thyssenkrupp Elevator continue to be loyal customers, while  independent elevator companies remain the backbone of the company’s valued distributors.
