thyssenkrupp Elevator has won the bid to provide the first metro in a district-free city, Luoyang – in Western China, with 234 elevators and escalators. It will be put into operation in 2021.

Given its good reputation for public infrastructure projects and its high market share, thyssenkrupp Elevator has been chosen to become the largest supplier of escalators for this project. The installation of all escalators is expected to be completed by August 2020. From then on, thyssenkrupp Elevator will keep providing Luoyang citizens with safe, comfortable and convenient mobility experiences.

“We have many competitive advantages here – ranging from our manufacturing facilities to our power to innovate and our strong service offers for a diversified customer base. The delivery and installation of the 234 elevators and escalators for the first metro line in Luoyang is another indicator for our ability to develop and provide solutions for future urban mobility,” said Peter Walker, CEO, thyssenkrupp Elevator.

With a strong focus on urbanization and improving access in cities, thyssenkrupp Elevator continues to invest in the Chinese market. In 2018, thyssenkrupp Elevator inaugurated its new China test tower and production facility in Zhongshan. The launch has demonstrated the company’s continued development in the region following the opening of its Multiple-Purpose Facility Building in Shanghai in 2016.
