Atlanta (USA) / Essen (Germany) July 27th 2018 (PROTEXT/ots)

thyssenkrupp Elevator, one of the world’s largest elevator companies and a market leader in North America, is going to build a new, world-class headquarters near The Battery Atlanta in Cobb County, Georgia.

The thyssenkrupp Elevator Americas Complex will house more than 900 full-time employees and upon completion, will include three facilities anchored by a state-of-the-art, 128-meter-tall elevator test tower, the tallest of its kind in the U.S. and one of the tallest in the world. It will be situated near the Atlanta Braves baseball stadium.

With 18 shafts, the test tower will be used to trial new concepts and conduct product pilots that will transform the elevator industry.

According to thyssenkrupp Elevator CEO, Andreas Schierenbeck: “Our new test tower in Atlanta will be a testimony to thyssenkrupp’s commitment to investing in its global network of innovation centers, which all have forged ever-deepening ties with students and universities nearby,” he says. “Within our network of spectacular high-speed test towers in Germany and China, the new facility in Atlanta will be the third laboratory for futuristic technologies such as the world’s first rope-less elevator, MULTI, and the proven high capacity, two cabins per shaft elevator, TWIN.”

Completion is expected by early 2022.
