2023.08.29 Fujitec Completes Modernization of Elevators in Singapore’s Leading High-Rise Office Building

Fujitec Singapore Corpn. Ltd. (Head Office: Bedok South Avenue, Singapore; Managing Director William Wong), a group subsidiary of FUJITEC CO., LTD. (Head Office: Shiga Prefecture, Japan; President and CEO Masayoshi Harada), completed modernization※ of 19 elevators in One Raffles Place (formerly OUB Center), Singapore. The new elevators equipped with the latest functions, offer increased speed and new systems to shorten riding time, offering greater comfort and more stability.

One Raffles Place, built in 1986, was the tallest building in Asia at that time. Fujitec Singapore supplied high-speed elevators of 420 meters per minute and other equipment with the original building construction. Since then, Fujitec Singapore has been providing maintenance, supporting safe and secure elevator operations. After 30 years of maintenance and support, Fujitec Singapore modernized the elevators from October 2019 to August 2023, maintaining safety and adding functionality.

※Elevator modernization is the process of improving elevator performance by transforming an old elevator into one equipped with the latest technology.
