The order, Otis’ largest to date in Kuwait, follows an order earlier this year for 42 Gen2(R) elevators in Kuwait City.
“Otis continues to strengthen its presence in Kuwait due to our experienced local management team as well as our comprehensive installation and service capabilities,” said Ari Bousbib, Otis president. “We look forward to this partnership with Al-Waseela Real Estate Company and to our participation in this important retail project.”
The Al-Ardiya project will support small industries and handcrafts. It includes a central area with individual studio workshops surrounded by a showroom and mall where handcrafts can be displayed and sold.
Otis’ Gen2 Comfort elevator brings the same unparalleled energy savings, reliability and quiet, environment-friendly operation of the Gen2 family of elevators to the low-rise residential and small-scale commercial building market segments. It can carry loads of 320 kilograms (four people) to 1,000 kilograms (13 people) at speeds of up to one meter per second.
