Lift Mart Company History
In the early 1950’s, the late Ibrahim Sami Semaan came to Dubai on a work trip from Qatar. He used to work in an Electrical company and the project he was handling was to fix the lighting of the Villa for the Qatari Prince at the time.
After completion of his first project in Dubai, he set up his own electric company at the time and proceeded to install all the electrical wiring for Deira Clock tower, and later on to install all the electrical wiring for Dubai Airports Runways.
He saw an opportunity of introducing Elevators to the region and he took it. He created his brand of elevators naming it Ultra Lifts and installed the first elevator in the United Arab Emirates in 1958. It is currently located in a private villa on Jamal Abdul Nasser Street in Deira.

His attitude and generosity made an impactful statement in the country and was later commended by the Dubai Municipality at the time for his kind gesture.

He then set up his very own factory in Spain that produced elevators for all of the Middle Eastern and North African territories.
The company then decided to turn to the foreign market through an aggressive export policy. By then, it’s lifts were already well known in several countries including Sudan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Yemen, Morocco and Lebanon.
This year is when we flourished in the Iraqi Market and supplied Elevators and Escalators to Olympic Stadiums, Malls, Hotels, Residential Developments, and Commercial Towers.
By this year, expansion factories were also established in Egypt, Libya, and Dubai.
