I had an initial curiosity whilst working on a high-rise commercial construction site which brought about the idea of incorporating a cleaning service to the lift maintenance schedules for lift companies.

In early 2003, Ervin took the initiative to establish Blackhole. 
With the creative help of his wife, the family agreed on a business name. I was later approached for more input. Having a plastering business of my own my initial input was minimal, although I occasionally helped out with the cleaning. Ervin eventually could not go on physically and semi-retired. I saw potential and began my research into the vertical transport industry and went on to restructure the entire business and register it as an entity in 2009.

BCS was initially structured as a Lift Pit cleaning specialist which provided waste and liquid waste collection, pit degreasing, pit cleaning, pit deodourising services only.

February 2003, an idea was conceived. Marketing began and Schindler lifts became Blackhole’s first client.

March 2004, Brent Vrab took over as owner and has established BCS to be a strong participant in the maintenance schedules of Schindler Lifts Australia, OTIS Elevators, Liftronic and KONE.
BCS has exposed itself to other clients such as A.S. Elevation,  Multilift, Electralift, Elevator Removal Specialists and is utilised on demand. Brent Vrab embarked to introduce this service for various reasons, apart from its uniqueness.

By 2007 BCS had extended its services to Escalator cleaning with good feedback, therefore gaining a reputable name for the degreasing and cleaning of escalators and its treads.

As 2008 came along, Blackhole extended its services to waste oil drum collection, by removing any used oil containers from clients’ warehouse spaces.

2011 brought in a year of greater promise with a new investment into an important piece of equipment which is integral to its environmental approach of responsible waste disposal/recycling. A portable incinerator. Most of the waste created and collected by Blackhole cannot be, by EPA regulations, disposed of into landfill, therefore, must be incinerated.


BCS has great environmental potential. Potential for lessening the carbon imprint of lift companies, protecting the land and water table from lift pit seepage.
BCS is in its Fourteenth year of business with a strong market presence, stable relationships, and has a good client base.

BCS is established as a single proprietor business. BCS has three of the major five clients confirmed, accessed the entire market.
In the 14 years BCS has operated, it's had an impeccable service record with no waste spills and no negative reports. Feedback has been 100% positive regarding its environmentalism, efficiency, productivity, professionalism and most importantly, its pricing structure. The flexibility of BCS to work with its clients and keep them satisfied has earned BCS an outstanding reputation that is unrivaled to date.

BCS is currently now focusing on better customer relations, to understand the mechanics of corporate thinking and structures, whilst learning to harmonise its behaviour to meet with the demands of its clients for continuing growth.
