Ensure your elevating products are tested, certified, and ready for global markets

Did You Know?

  • More than 2 billion people travel by lifts every day, as cities get denser and buildings get taller.
  • The “Smart Elevator” market is estimated to grow to more than $26 Billion USD by 2022, especially because of population growth, urbanization and pressure to reduce energy consumption.

As the world population shifts to cities and building renovations accelerate, demand for elevators, lifts, escalators and moving sidewalks continues to boom. Add to that the acceleration of innovation – from smart lift technologies to energy efficient flat belt and cable-less lifts – and competing in the market becomes even more critical to the success of your business.

CSA Group can help you take advantage of these opportunities and keep your product development processes on track by testing and certifying your elevating devices for compliance and safety in global markets.
