Lifts & Escalators
Kone continues to build on its long presence in the Gulf and add some landmark projects to its portfolio. The elevators and escalator major also maintains a focus on innovation through the development of advanced solutions that make life easier and safer for its users.
The Elevator Division of Al-Futtaim Engineering & Technologies, which offers solutions from a range of principals and undertakes lift modernisation projects, says there is increasing demand for vertical transportation equipment that enhances sustainability.
Kone’s new volume elevator range further raises the benchmark on eco-efficiency. Starting from this year, the company says the series will form a substantial part of its future offering.
Toshiba Elevators' latest deal worth over $37.1 million to supply 122 elevators for 22 towers at Reem Island's City of Lights project, falls in line with its expansion stratgy, which aims at increasing turnover in the next five years.
Having secured deals for the vertical movement of people in some of the tallest buildings in the world, Otis takes up the challenge of transporting people within the Burj Dubai, slated to shatter the records for tall buildings on completion in 2008.
