The years 2016 and 2017 were when elevators for ships took off in Zardoya Otis. With the engineering centre and the Vigo (Pontevedra) plant as a base, the Spanish OTIS subsidiary has become a worldwide benchmark for OTIS Elevator Co. in this growing sector



OTIS Marine, as the area is known within our corporation, worked with some of the most important shipyards in the world in 2017, located in Germany and Finland.

Furthermore, the José Barreras Shipyard in Vigo, one of the most prestigious shipyards worldwide, placed their confidence in us to install the elevators in a luxury cruise vessel that they are currently building. In this vessel, we are installing 7 very high-end elevators and it will be the first ship in the world to enjoy Gen2 technology.

The intensive activity carried on in this area at the Vigo plant led to a visit to our facilities by the President of the regional government of Galicia. In the course of his visit, Alberto Núñez Feijóo highlighted the “expansion that OTIS is undergoing”, a group that, as he mentioned, “has a payroll of 350 people in the ‘olive city’ [Vigo]”.

Our company was also present in the tender processes of the main shipyards in the world. We trust that the results of this effort will be reflected in the volume of our business this year and next.
