Bergisch Gladbach/Friedburg, 13 April 2022. Schmersal Böhnke + Partner and Austrian start-up View Elevator have agreed to cooperate on global sales of their products to the lift industry. The two companies have also announced their intention to work together on the further development of lift systems, with a particular focus on digitalisation. Schmersal Böhnke + Partner and View Elevator will jointly showcase their products and innovations at interlift 2022: Stand 1053, Hall 1.
Schmersal Böhnke + Partner of Bergisch Gladbach develops, designs and manufactures components, control systems and remote diagnostics systems for the lift industry.
The Austrian start-up View Elevator specialises in the development of digital systems for lift management and safe, barrier-free use of lifts.
‘View Elevator’s product range is an ideal addition to the range from Schmersal Böhnke + Partner. We believe that the cooperation agreement will see an innovation boost in the development of digital systems for lift technology,’ explains Dr Andreas Hunscher, Head of Lift Business at the Schmersal Group. ‘Digitalisation of lift technology offers extraordinary market potential, as it enables operators to improve the efficiency of their lifts, which in some cases are decades old and need multiple retrofits.’
‘We develop smart, manufacturer-independent technologies than can be used on all lift systems universally. These technologies help to improve safety for lift users, reduce effort and expense for operators and optimise the lifecycle costs of systems,’ explains Johannes Schober, CEO and founder of View Elevator. ‘The partnership with Böhnke + Partner, part of the global Schmersal Group, gives us the opportunity to drive the internationalization of our business model.’
At interlift, Schmersal Böhnke + Partner will be showcasing new concepts for lifts that do not need a machine house as well as a newly developed software API, which in conjunction with the bp408 control module, allows Jeeves service robots to use lifts independently.
View Elevator will be showcasing products including VIEW Liftbook, the independent digital lift book, as well as VIEW II, a multimedia safety system for lifts, and VIEW Sense, the first safety monitoring system for lifts to be supported by AI.
