About us

Great brands have a great story. Ours is legendary!

In 1853, Elisha Otis travelled to the New York World's Fair to promote his new invention. Standing high above the crowd on a platform lift, he ordered the retaining rope cut. The crowd cried out. His safety brake held.

And in that moment, 165 years ago, one man changed the world's perspective on what's possible. Since the New York World's Fair, we've dedicated ourselves to one thing: moving the world.

Otis is the world’s largest elevator and escalator manufacturing, installation and service business. We serve customers in over 200 countries and territories around the world and maintain more than 2 million elevators and escalators globally. Our Gen2® elevator system, energy-saving ReGen™ drive technology and Link escalator solutions have set industry standards for innovation and performance.
