1. New Standard Elevator
Hitachi has released the new standard elevator, which embodies the “Human Friendly” development concept of Hitachi elevator and escalator products and services. With a simple new design developed under the direction of Naoto Fukasawa, a world-renowned product designer, this elevator incorporates various features to reduce the risk of infectious diseases for realizing a new elevator experience.
Since the elevator’s release, Hitachi has continued to add new and more attractive features, such as a “sensor-integrated touchless button” that allows users to call elevators and select the destination floor by placing their hands near the sensor without directly touching the button. Hitachi is also working to further expand its features and services to meet changing market needs, such as operation functions linked to robots and enhanced linkage with building facilities.
As competition intensifies, the ability to accurately capture these changes in market needs becomes even more important. Looking ahead, Hitachi will continue to analyze market trends and customer demands as needed and to provide the products and services that customers want in a timely manner to the market.
