Otis expands Bengaluru factory; introduces new elevator

Otis Elevator Company (India) Ltd. today announced the opening of its expanded factory in Bengaluru that includes a new state-of-the-art elevator test tower.
 Established 15 years ago in the Jigani industrial area, Otis India’s production facility more than tripled the size of the factory footprint and doubled its manufacturing capacity with the recent enhancements. Co-located with the factory is Otis’ R&D centre in India that has also significantly expanded its engineering capacity in recent years. The factory’s new test tower, stands at a height of 51.2 metres and has the ability to test up to six elevators at a time.
“The expanded facility will enable Otis India to produce a wider range of smart, energy-efficient products, localised for the Indian residential and commercial segments,” it said.
The company has also announced the launch of a new Gen2 Infinity product line, developed for the mid-rise residential sector. The passenger elevator operates at a speed of 1.75-metre per second and features a compact machine room making it ideal for mid-rise residential buildings, up to 30 floors. The factory will exclusively manufacture the new product at the expanded Bengaluru facility.
Zubin Irani, president, UTC Building & Industrial Systems – India, said, “India is urbanising at rates never seen before. As the need for housing grows with urbanisation, the need for elevators will continue to grow just as rapidly. The expanded facility will help cater to our new project wins as well as expected elevator demand here in India. We’re delighted that with this expanded facility, Otis is equipped to ‘Make in India’ and well-positioned to meet the demand for sustainable building technologies in the country.”
Sebi Joseph, managing director, Otis India said, “Otis India is pleased to build upon our 100-year history in India by strengthening our manufacturing presence in Bengaluru. The Bengaluru factory expansion underscores Otis India’s focus on local innovation and continued investment in manufacturing and research activities.”
