Starting with the previous Nippon Elevator Industry Co. Ltd. in 1954, Schindler Elevator K.K. (SEKK) was established in 1991. Since then, we have designed, installed, serviced and modernized transport systems, and provided high-quality services with a safety-first policy to keep people moving.
And, as of October 3, 2016, our service business has been transferred to Otis Elevator Service Company (OESC). And OESC is going to be the exclusive, authorized Original Equipment Manufacturer (“OEM”) maintenance service provider of Schindler equipment in Japan and will have access to original OEM spares and solutions for continued maintenance and upgrade for Schindler products in Japan.
Schindler Elevator will continue to operate in Japan as an entity to meet its legal and societal obligations with respect to ongoing litigation and investigations.
Founded in Switzerland in 1874, the Schindler Group is a leading global provider of elevators, escalators and related services. Schindler mobility solutions move more than one billion people every day all over the world. Behind the company's success are over 60,000 employees in more than 100 countries.
