Clients from every segment have a different requirement. Epic customises in terms of interiors and exteriors, technology, safety and more.
How can elevators be used as an advertising medium to offset maintenance cost, what are your specific products in this range?
Elevator branding too is also an emerging concept in India. Today, we see skyscrapers emerging all around the urban spaces. Be it residential or commercial, these skyscrapers have huge traffic flow. The people visiting or living or working at these buildings spend a portion of their time in the elevator. This gives the advertisers a spot to communicate their messages better and that too to a specific target group. For the builder this is an opportunity to encash. The money earned through advertising in the elevator can help him compensate for the expenses he incurs on the maintenance.
We provide a range of elevators and for a range of verticals. So it depends on our clients if they want us to design an elevator with scope for branding. We are always happy to customise according to our clients’ needs.
