Xizi Otis president Alan Cheung said: “Shanghai sets the benchmark for rail transit projects in East China and nationwide.

“As the city develops into a global centre of finance, trade, shipping and investment in accordance with the Five-Year Plan, we will continue to provide safe, convenient and reliable transport for commuters and visitors.”

Earlier this month, Xizi Otis Elevator has won a contract to maintain all 110 Otis escalators installed at Beijing South Railway Station in China.

The contract was re-awarded due to its Back-Home Inspection programme, which provides complimentary inspection services for the company’s elevators and escalators in China.

Xizi Otis has so far delivered around 3,000 escalators for metro networks in more than ten major cities in China, including Beijing, Shanghai, Dalian, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Ningbo, Wuhan, Kunming, Chengdu and Shenzhen.
