Junichi Kyushima, MD, Toshiba Johnson Elevators India
Toshiba Johnson Elevators (India) Pvt. Ltd. (TJEI), a joint venture of Toshiba Elevator and Building Systems Corporation and Johnson Lifts Pvt. Ltd., provides world class, energy efficient and safe vertical transportation systems. Toshiba, through its subsidiary TJEI, is introducing elevators that are more connected and more efficient, and which promise premier quality assurance and quality control.

India’s tremendous infrastructure growth is being propelled by undulating business hubs to marvelous residential complexes. As India’s skyline touches newer heights, faster, stronger and more reliable elevator systems are becoming a prerequisite to the real estate sector. Although India is the world’s 2nd largest elevator market, it is still in the nascent stages with average annual sales volume is just upwards of 50,000 units. This untapped potential renders India as the fastest growing elevator market in the world. By 2020-21, the Indian market is expected to grow 35-40 percent crossing 70,000 elevators per annum mark. But the growing market is also throwing up new challenges such as emphasis on energy-efficient products and gearless elevators. With tall buildings being the current trend, providing faster elevators is essential. The need for innovative and eco-efficient products is also increasing with the ‘Green Building’ concept gaining significant ground in India.

Comprehending the evolving preferences of Indian consumers, Toshiba through its subsidiary – Toshiba Johnson Elevators India (TJEI), is introducing elevators that are more connected and more efficient. Toshiba elevators promise premier quality assurance and quality control. TJEI conducts a rigorous ‘7-Step Quality Check’ for installation and adjustment at every project site, earning it a zero-accident record in India. This leads to the best balance between cost and quality. To ensure high quality during installation and maintenance, rigorous skill training is undertaken by the Japanese engineers for the Indian engineers.

TJEI has expanded its product portfolio to cover all spectrums of the market – from premium to upper-middle elevator market. The company is focusing on two segments – the premium and luxury segment where it is already an established brand; and the upper middle segment including offices, commercial spaces and residential condominiums, where TJEI will further consolidate its market position with products ‘Made-for-India.’

Toshiba’s Technology Advantage
Toshiba elevators come with a host of innovative technologies that focus on passenger safety, riding comfort, noise control, and energy conservation. In addition, the elevators are also designed to consume minimum building space and can be customized in terms of interiors to perfectly suit the tastes of the architects and clients.
  • Traction machine designed and manufactured by Toshiba promises quality assurance and quality control.
  • Compact PMSM for space saving; over 30% lower power consumption (compared to conventional geared electric motor).
  • Gearless traction without gear oil for low vibration, low noise and better environmental conservation.

  • Roller guide shoe for better comfort, higher efficiency, compactness and environmental conservation.
  • Energy regeneration through the regenerative device (offered as an optional feature) that feeds energy back to the power grid while the traction machine is under power generation to achieve high-efficiency energy utilization and suppress temperature rise in the machine room.
  • Noise control through newly developed gear engagement.
  • Lead-free design of base plate, RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliance and elimination of specific chemical substances (15 classifications).
