ULift is a brand of DTZ Singapore and UGL company, as well as a brand for XJ elevators installed in Housing and Development Board (HDB) flats across the country. Very little is known about this brand except that it was founded in 2007.


ULift supply XJ elevators mostly for HDB projects in Singapore, which are installed under the Lift Upgrading Programme, although they have also installed elevators for new blocks as well. The elevator doors are undecorated and appear narrower than those of other companies. Initially, the buttons were circular in shape (batch 1), which from batch 2 onwards became square in shape, similar with other companies. Like most elevator companies that were contracted by HDB, their elevators also use LED floor indicators provided by Dewhurst.
