The elevator market in India continues to expand as the national economy
grows. Annual demand for new installations in the fiscal year ending in
March 2019 is believed to have totaled about 52,000 units, second only
to China, and is expected to continue rising. Up to now, machine
room-less elevators manufactured in Japan and Thailand have been
supplied to India. In view of the local demand for architectural design
freedom and effective usage of floor space, however, IMEC decided to
introduce the NEXIEZ-LITE MRL in the NEXIEZ-LITE series, which is sold
exclusively in India. Mitsubishi Electric and IMEC now look forward to
providing customers with safe and reliable products and services in the
expanding Indian market.
