Last September, thyssenkrupp was named the official vertical transportation provider of Hudson Yards, which is the largest private real estate development in U.S. history and the largest development in New York City since Rockefeller Center.
Meanwhile, thyssenkrupp’s groundbreaking ropeless and sideways-moving elevator, MULTI, achieved innovation and sustainability milestones, winning the 2018 Innovation Award at the Council for Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat’s first annual Tall + Urban Innovation Conference, as well as winning the Alliance to Save Energy’s Innovative Star of Energy Efficiency Award in the Built Environment category.
thyssenkrupp also launched evolution 200, a cost-effective low- to mid-rise elevator for buildings up to 350 feet tall, and increased its customer installation base for MAX, the industry’s first real-time predictive maintenance system, to more than 80,000 customers in the U.S. alone.
“It has been a tremendous year for thyssenkrupp Elevator, and our journey is only beginning,” shared Wedge. “We are passionately committed to revolutionizing an industry that’s been stuck in neutral for far too long, and we will continue to push the envelope to create the safest, most efficient building transportation systems in the world.”
