Installation-specific requirements play a much greater role in effective maintenance and repairs for escalators and moving walks than for elevators. We offer individualized service concepts, fast and reliable replacement part delivery, cost transparency and budget security.

Should your needs exceed the scope of a regular maintenance plan, we’ll create a customized escalator service offering, whether for a shopping center’s system or an entire city’s public transport network.

Expert service for all makes

Our service technicians receive continuous training from industry experts at our escalator factory in Hamburg, Germany. Thanks to this comprehensive training programme, our technicians are among the best at servicing escalators of any make.

Tailor-made service solutions

Whether for shopping centres, exhibition halls, airports or railway stations, our made-to-measure service concepts ensure a consistently high standard of performance. You’re guaranteed the optimal solution for any type of building or system, and any number of escalators.

Besides elevators, escalators and moving walks, we offer services for many other products, such as passenger boarding bridges (jetways), lifting and loading platforms, stair lifts and hoists.
