Trivia

  • From the elevator enthusiasts and even mechanics in Hong Kong, China, they always called their "Hydra Plus" door components as "Selcom"[5] as the Wittur's most best-selling products, which is the identification of the genuine Wittur's door components.
  • As the Kone's door components system was taken over by Wittur Group in 2000 at Austria, the Kone AMD linear door operator (patented from Montgomery Kone) are now produced by Wittur Group. However, Kone components label is still presented on the door components.
