Escalators and moving walks

Installation-specific requirements play a much greater role in effective maintenance and repairs for escalators and moving walks than for lifts. We offer individualised service concepts, fast and reliable replacement part delivery, cost transparency and budget security.

Should your needs exceed the scope of a regular maintenance plan, we’ll create a customised escalator service offering, whether for a shopping centre’s system or an entire city’s public transport network.

Expert service for all makes

Our service technicians receive continuous training from industry experts at our escalator factory in Hamburg, Germany. Thanks to this comprehensive training programme, our technicians are among the best at servicing escalators of any make.

Tailor-made service solutions

Whether for shopping centres, exhibition halls, airports or railway stations, our made-to-measure service concepts ensure a consistently high standard of performance. You’re guaranteed the optimal solution for any type of building or system, and any number of escalators.

Other products

Besides lifts, escalators and moving walks, we offer services for many other products, such as passenger boarding bridges (jetways), lifting and loading platforms, stair lifts and hoists.

Innovations in service

Our goal is to dramatically increase efficiency, raise lift uptimes and speed up service interventions to ensure mobility equipment is always running as it should. By harnessing the power of the Internet of Things with solutions like MAX and HoloLens, thyssenkrupp is stepping further into the digital era and transforming the way the lift industry offers maintenance services.



Wouldn’t it be great to have fewer lift breakdowns, quicker service visits, and know in advance about any significant expenditure on your lifts? thyssenkrupp’s MAX, the industry’s first real-time, cloud-based predictive maintenance solution, is making this a reality. With MAX as their digital-age partner, our service engineers will soon be able to preemptively address equipment issues, empowering them to serve you better.

Blending 3D holographic content with the physical world, Microsoft’s mixed-reality HoloLens devices will soon enable our engineers to take service interventions to the next level. With HoloLens, they can visualize and identify problems with lifts ahead of a job, and have remote, hands-free access to expert advice when on site, resulting in significant savings in time and stress.
