Yes, you read that right. I assert we will need to miniaturize our products’ burden on buildings while having bigger experiences and faster delivery times which requires stronger materials. 

Remember Ironman’s super-cool digital screens inside his ocean-side lair? Well today, thyssenkrupp announced that our service technicians will use HoloLens technology in its elevator service operations worldwide.

There is no getting around it. If your building is two stories or hundreds of feet, you are going to need an elevator. You have to meet the American Disabilities Act codes but what you don’t need is a complicated elevator system to travel just a few feet.

The term “smart city” can be open to interpretation. Here are a few prerequisites established a few years ago.  A smart city uses technologies to be more intelligent and efficient when using resources.

thyssenkrupp is currently putting the finishing touches on the installation of 30 elevators and 2 escalators that will serve 52 floors at River Point, a new office tower located on a prime piece of property overlooking the Chicago River.


Through our Facebook page, we have the opportunity to interact with thousands of people each week. Some we interact with on a regular basis. Andrew Reams is one of those subscribers. He was one of the first people to reach out to us through Facebook, asking about where he could find buildings with ThyssenKrupp Elevator Signa4 fixtures in Roanoke, Virginia. He shared that he liked to film elevators under the name “dieselducy,” and that he had the top elevator channel on YouTube.

In April 2012, we started posting regularly on the social media sites.  We didn’t really know how many people would be interested in following an elevator company, or even how much interesting content we could come up with. But just 14 months later, we hit 50,000 followers on Facebook!  So we created an official “thank you” to the people who read our posts every day.

Our social media efforts involve a lot more than just finding and creating relevant content. With nearly 50,000 Facebook followers, we have a lot of people to interact with! Many of those followers enjoy writing to us and getting a response. That interaction with excited elevator fans is one of the most rewarding parts of my job.
