The change will enable ThyssenKrupp Access to sustain recent growth it has experienced in residential elevators. “Our residential elevator product line has grown over 250% the past three years,” commented Hance. In the upcoming months, ThyssenKrupp Access will launch a new residential elevator marketing campaign targeted at the custom and national home builder. “All data indicates the residential elevator will be the next ‘must have’ home appliance across America. ThyssenKrupp Access is positioning itself to handle the increased residential elevator demand and to continue to be the leader in this market,” said Hance.
