Hitachi awarded its ‘largest order’ to install 300 lifts at Singapore apartments

Hitachi Elevator Asia has been awarded the contract for the supply and installation of 300 lifts by the Housing & Development Board of Singapore.

This is the largest single order for the Hitachi group’s lifts and escalators business in Singapore.

Hitachi Elevator Asia will see the supply, delivery and installation of the 300 lifts at HDB blocks.

Victor Sia, managing director, Hitachi Elevator Asia, says: “HDB flats are home to over 80 percent of Singapore’s resident population. We are proud to be part of this development and look forward to serving the people in the years to come.”

Hitachi Elevator Asia says winning this tender allows it to showcase the ability to adapt to different markets and their needs.

Since its establishment in 1972, Hitachi Elevator Asia has been providing a large number of lifts and escalators, including moving sidewalks, for major facilities such as Changi International Airport and Guoco Tower, the tallest building in Singapore.

In 2019, an advanced lift remote monitoring and maintenance service was introduced in Singapore, where real-time operational data about the lifts and implementation of preventive maintenance are provided.
