Construction, Infrastructure and Buildings

Supporting the construction, infrastructure and buildings industry

Our cities are growing rapidly. According to forecasts, the number of people living in cities is set to increase by three billion in the next 30 years. This will pose challenges for transport and traffic – and above all for infrastructure and the design of buildings.

With our business areas Elevator Technology, Materials Services, Steel Europe, and Components Technology we at thyssenkrupp have our sights set firmly on the future. We are working hard to develop innovative products and solutions that will make everyday life easier.
Passenger transportation in urban areas is an increasingly important issue. We have already developed a wide range of solutions in this area, as our TWIN® elevator system shows. This is the only elevator system in the world in which two cabs travel independently of each other in the same shaft. The technology requires 25 percent less space to transport the same number of passengers. In the MULTI cable-free elevator system, several cabs travel in a single shaft – both vertically and horizontally. Our service and maintenance solution MAX makes passenger transportation even more reliable and reduces downtimes by up to 50 percent.

As a result of ongoing urbanization, elevators gain particular prominence. Today, they are the safest and most widely used means of transportation in the world.

At thyssenkrupp we develop our innovations for urban transformation together with our customers. With our long experience, sound knowledge of the industry, and our eye for detail, we create products and solutions that are already visibly shaping the growing cities of tomorrow.
