Otis has been awarded a contract to supply and install 111 elevators and escalators for the renovation of the Beijing South Railway Station.



The contract is part of an infrastructure project supporting the Beijing 2008 Olympic Summer Games.


In total, Otis has won 25 Beijing 2008 Olympics-related contracts. In this latest project, Otis will provide 75 escalators and 36 Gen2 machine-roomless elevators with flat-belt technology.
