Hitachi Ltd. (TSE: 6501, “Hitachi”) and Hitachi Building Systems Co., Ltd. will launch a new machine room-less elevator model for Asia and the Middle East on September 30.

Design of the inside of a new machine room-less elevator for Asia and the Middle East

The new elevator model, which was developed in Japan, is equipped with Hitachi's latest technologies. In addition to its excellent design, it also offers uniform basic specifications to meet the different standards of each country and respond flexibly and quickly to the needs of customers. Hitachi aims to receive orders of approximately 5,000 units in the regions.

In recent years, there has been a growing demand for machine room-less elevators in the Asian and the Middle Eastern markets. Machine room-less elevators are designed to have no machine room where a traction machine, a control board, and other lifting components are normally installed. Instead, these components are housed inside the hoistway.

Until now, Hitachi's international elevator business has brought machine room-less elevators originally developed for other markets to Asian and Middle Eastern countries by customising them to meet the legal and technical requirements of each country. With the launch of this new elevator model, it will be able to provide customers with faster and more flexible services.
