Like any global company, Doppler is looking at opportunities for future business. Traditionally, Doppler has performed well in Europe, making many solid partnerships with various European manufacturers. Now, in 2018, they are considering increasing activity with their clients in the MENA region. As one of the fastest growing global areas, the MENA region has an increased need for lifts, escalators and parking solutions, which Doppler are prepared to provide. The company will manage this goal by identifying emerging opportunities and acting upon them, reaching out to prospective clients to create new partnerships: a key part of their development strategy.
In addition to the MENA region, Doppler has made plans and partnerships with their markets in Asia. The company has recently announced a strategic partnership with CCK Group for the design and manufacture of elevators and escalators, which will serve the market of China primarily. After successful conferences at the Great Hall of People in Beijing, 2016, CCK Group and Doppler S.A. signed the MOU for the establishment of a Joint Venture based on the expertise and brand name of Doppler S.A.
The joint venture has been created by Sichuan Express Elevators and Escalators, a former Joint venture of CCK group and OTIS, which was established in 2004 to increase the production and installation of elevators/escalators in Chinese markets.
Upon the expiration of the agreement with Otis, CCK group considered entering into a new agreement with Doppler S.A instead of renewing the former arrangement. This is because the Doppler brand added valuable know-how to the business deal. Importantly, Doppler S.A. acquired shares and participation in the new company. The name of Joint Venture is Sichuan Doppler elevators Co., Ltd.
Since then, Sichuan Doppler Elevator Co., Ltd. has become one of the largest subsidiaries of China Chuan Kai Industrial Group Co., Ltd. (CCK Group). The production of Doppler complete lift packages is still the primary target for the existing Sichuan Doppler Elevators and escalators premises.
Overall, Doppler SA is the mother company of these subsets. It provides technical support to Sichuan DOPPLER Elevator Co. on a daily basis, not just for the improvement of existing products but also for the design and manufacture of new upcoming models. These are tailored to the Chinese market needs, particularly concerned with fitting lifts in high rise buildings. Currently, every integrated and customized lift solution is designed and produced in the headquarters in Greece.
With a wide range of products, and a wide range of global partners to invest in them, Doppler lifts continue to do what they do best: go up.
