We are urban landscape transformers.
Cities are currently growing by a million people each week and will account for most of the world’s population growth in the future. Global hyper-urbanization continues to drastically transform our way of living.
Often seen as products of pure convenience, elevators and escalators changed how buildings are constructed and created a revolution in city planning and urbanization. Elevators enabled engineers to start building skyscrapers in the early 1800s – in line with the industrial revolution – and this movement towards verticality has been gaining momentum ever since.
Building vertically is the only viable architectural response to hyper-urbanization – with the elevator as its main partner to vertically stretch the city and create new, quality living space.
A horizontal expansion of vertical living.
Mitsulift has a long history in elevators, escalators and moving systems at large. Founded in 1984, the company was born out of a Lebanese industrial family, starting as a reseller of products made by Japan’s Mitsubishi Electric Corporation. After the end of the civil war, in 1992, all efforts are geared towards literally rebuilding Beirut from the ground up, which results in Mitsulift becoming the market leader in Lebanon by 1996.
In 2000 the Mitsulift Group starts a joint venture with Mitsubishi Electric, and spreads its expertise to developing countries most affected by hectic urbanization. Mitsulift becomes the region’s leading company with operations in Syria, Greece, Cyprus, Jordan, Nigeria and Ghana, rolling out a development model that focuses on long-term local investment.
Reliable technology and know-how is key for emerging countries to provide infrastructures that will help cities absorb their growing population.
We enhance city living.
Conveying systems help people move effortlessly throughout the new cityscape. The capacity to build higher and concentrate more people in smaller areas enhances the social benefits of urban living – from uninterrupted motion and people dynamics to advances in employment, services and entertainment.
Not only smoothly moving up and down a building, but also crossing the city in one fluid flow. Strolling over moving walkways, passing a gently revolving door, we want to make urban life as easy as possible, while keeping our standards high.
The elevator as a reflection of life in modern cities. A space of both intimacy and anonymity, constantly in motion.
Just as Mitsulift’s moving systems are at the pumping heart of buildings and cities, teamwork is at the heart of Mitsulift. Partners and team members make up the Mitsulift family.
All our departments work together like gearwheels in a clock. From consulting (Pre Sales) to choice and follow-up (Sales) to quality and expertise (Installation) to the cherry on the cake: a long-term relationship (After Sales).
We follow each project from the initial stage to the finishing touch, making the ride as smooth as possible – from the most private villa to the tower in the sky.
Every elevator deserves its own building.
Mitsulift loves a smooth ride for its clients, tailoring to each and everyone’s personal style. We want our elevators to be an extension of your home or the finishing touch of an office building, moving up and down as the business flows. We are renowned for our contemporary design solutions, customizing to every possible wish. All of our elevators integrate smoothly in the design of the building, whether it’s a private villa, a shopping mall or a new urban complex.
Enjoying the best of both worlds, we mix innovative and state-of-the-art Japanese technology with world-renowned Lebanese hospitality. It’s where craftsmanship, precision and expertise meet attention to detail, know-how and dedication.
Top-notch technology meets sound safety.
All Mitsulift’s conveying systems are compact in size, free up space and go low on the noise. Indoors and outside, 24/7, rain or shine, they are top-range performers. Sound, safe and easy to use, with clear signage, buttons and lighting – the technology of Mitsubishi Electric is supreme. Take, for example, the use of highly sophisticated Permanent Magnet (PM) motors to replace induction motors, reducing the size of both the traction machine and energy consumption. Or Mitsubishi Electric’s application of breakthrough artificial intelligence technology to provide expert control systems for both elevators and escalators.
On top of that comes our special care and touch: think service, maintenance and, last but not least, safety. All our team members adhere to strict safety procedures and training to guarantee total security.
We create the elevator that people actually love to take.
Being significant is more important than being successful.
Our elevators’ minimum waiting times are good for clients and the environment. Mitsulift carefully selects the best products available: high-end, with advanced technology, built to last, timeless and upgradable, including the greenest, most energy friendly machines out there. This is Life Cycle Assessment at its best. A win-win situation: for us, the people and the planet.
Vertical growth combined with a small carbon footprint, during production, installation and daily office life.
