Otis to Take UK Skylines to New Heights

Otis to Take UK Skylines to New Heights

With the dramatic change to London’s skyline currently underway, the city and the rest of the UK will be set with modern high-rise buildings. Otis, whose founder invented the modern elevator, is introducing new elevator products and services to meet that demand, including the connected Gen2® Life elevator and the expanded Otis SkyRise® product family for high-rise buildings. Otis, which operates in the UK as Otis Limited, is the world’s leading manufacturer and maintainer of people-moving products, including elevators, escalators and moving walkways, and is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

“It’s predicted that 60 percent of the world will be living in cities by 2030, and Otis is leading the way with new products and services that combine connectivity with the modern designs as well as the mechanical and functional excellence that has been critical to our success for more than 160 years,” said Hemant Jolly, managing director of Otis, UK and Ireland. “These investments show that Otis is a multinational company that sees tremendous opportunity in the UK, and we look forward to showing people here how our new products and services can bring passengers — and the buildings they live and work in — to the next level.”

Made to Move You is the new proposition and creative platform from Otis which aims to create a story thread between the connectivity and design aspects of the product and the human connections that take place behind an elevator's closed doors, unpicking rich story themes told in a beautifully shot, short film.  www.madetomoveyou.co.uk
