History

Nippon Elevator Industries Co. was established in 1954 in Tokyo, Japan. In 1973, an elevator test tower and manufacturing plant was established in Fukuroi, Shizouka. Schindler Group then acquires the 30% shares of Nippon Elevator in 1985 and two years later, the company was completely taken over by Schindler, where it is now known as Schindler Elevator K.K. in Japan. In 1993, the majority interest of Schindler elevator in Japan is increased to 75%. Schindler's operations in Japan were sold to Nippon Otis on April 5, 2016 because of low reputation from several Schindler elevator accidents in Japan.
