Everyone always asks the Research Department for statistics. Some people in the industry have told us that they have problems finding elevator statistics. So, back in January, we started a year-long project to research and develop a statistical report. This has proved to be more difficult than we had imagined. People don’t always want to part with their numbers! We have plugged away at this using all sorts of cajoling, pleading, and sometimes even bribery to get our numbers.
We are still working on this behemoth project, but it (slowly) seems to be coming together. Hopefully, by the beginning of next year we will be able to have this project completed, and then we can have all the statistics for those that are interested.
