Lahore (Muhammad Yasir) A German company, thyssenkrupp has installed 32 elevators and 28 escalators in the country’s second largest shopping center, the Emporium Mall complex. The complex covers 250,000 square meters and expects around 44,000 visitors a day.
Every hour, the elevators and escalators have to transport over 3,500 people – reliably and trouble-free. Maintenance of the systems is carried out by the partner Global Business Bridge.
Pakistan has enormous growth potential, with new malls, office complexes, hotels and public infrastructure projects such as ports, and airports being built, the result is a demand for around 1,000 new elevators per year, which ensure modern mobility within the new buildings.
German Ambassador Martin Kobler and Mian Mohammad Mansha, one of the Pakistan’s most successful entrepreneurs, were present at the inaugural ceremony.
