Untitled - 23.jpgOtis Elevator Company (India) Ltd has embarked on the expansion of its Bangalore elevator factory in Karnataka. On completion in early 2012, the expanded facility will be three times the size of the current factory and will include a test tower, an official statement said. The new, 27,500 square-meter manufacturing facility will incorporate leading Otis technologies from all over the world and is being built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold standards. Otis India is the domestic arm of US head quartered Otis Elevator Company, in turn a unit of United Technologies Corp.

"Otis India is pleased to further build upon our 100-year history in India while strengthening our manufacturing presence in Bangalore," said Laurent Bruyère, Managing Director, Otis India. "Our expanded facility will ensure that Otis India is well-positioned to support India's exponential growth with quality, locally produced elevators, while conserving the country's valuable resources."

An expanded factory will enable Otis India to more effectively serve an India elevator market that is expected to reach 70,000 units over the next three years. Otis India's Bangalore factory will also supply the company's growing portfolio of customers in India. Recently, Otis was selected to provide 63 elevators and escalators for Kohinoor Square, a state-of-the art office complex in Mumbai. Kohinoor Square will include one of India's tallest office buildings and is currently pursuing LEED Platinum certification from the Indian Green Building Council. Otis also supplied its energyefficient Gen2® elevators to Kohinoor Hospital in India, the first hospital in Asia to be awarded LEED Platinum certification.

"This ground-breaking marks the beginning of a new phase of Otis' leadership in India," noted Bruyère. "Since the first Otis elevator was installed in Calcutta in 1892, we have successfully partnered with customers throughout India. Today, we look forward to expanding our local manufacturing expertise while providing more than double the number of job opportunities to the people of Bangalore."
