TOKYO--Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6503) announced today it will launch a machine-room-less (MRL) elevator, the NEXIEZ-GPX, targeted at low- to mid-rise residential and office buildings in the Latin American market, on October 17. Annual sales of 300 units are targeted in 2018. Prices will be available by quote.
While a boom in building construction in Latin America has raised the demand for elevators for low- to mid-rise residences and offices, building height restrictions, particularly in Mexico, have create a need for elevators that do not incorporate machine rooms.
