Digitalisation in the lift industry

During this time, he already held various management positions in sales and was decisively involved in developing and launching new products. According to Otis, he always paid special attention in this regard to the advancing state of digitalisation in the lift industry.

"Otis is putting itself on an even broader footing in the enormously important field of digitalisation with the expertise of Mr Gruß," explained Udo Hoffmann. "I’m delighted I’ll also be able to help shape the digitalisation of our business in the future," emphasised Andreas Gruß.
