This is no ordinary truck – it's a 17 meters long training room on wheels. Every year, the two-floor vehicle travels to all parts of China to provide trainings for our front-line staff for elevator maintenance. Since 2012, it has visited over 100 Chinese cities. While the upper floor of the truck remains folded on the move, it extends towards both sides during trainings. Then, it opens up to provide enough space for the training sessions, reaching a height of nearly 7 meters within seconds. 
In this image, you can see the truck passing by the Dalai Lama's former residence, the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet. In the city, you not only discover the rich history of buddhism but also a variety of our elevators and escalators.

Some students study lecture notes. Others build racing cars. At our first thyssenkrupp Presta Racing Day in Röthis, Austria, we gave 40 talents of the "Formula Student" the opportunity to test their self-made racing cars on a real track. However, in times of low power, the young drivers of @tugracing were surely happy about the option to consult our experienced experts while recharging – just like their race car named "Giulia".

As cities grow, so does air travel. With air traffic at an all-time high, passenger numbers are
expected to increase by 50%, reaching an estimated 7.2 billion by 2035. The need for
enhanced mobility and smarter airport infrastructure has never been greater. Our vast experience in integrating such equipment in any configuration required helps airport operators and airlines get it right on the ground so that aircraft can get in the air, fast. In order to ensure that everything runs smoothly every day, our service team makes some sparks fly sometimes.

Historical decisions should be sealed at historical locations. That's why Brussels was the perfect stage for our press conference on the planned steel joint venture with Tata Steel – a clear European number 2 that paves the way forward for steel. To illustrate the new bond, we chose an image for the one mission our joint venture is all about: making high quality steel together.

You might know us best for our elevators and escalators. But mobility doesn’t stop in public places! We also design, manufacture and install quality stairlifts and other home mobility solutions for over 60 years. This benefits our customers, especially our fellow elderly who wish to remain independent in their own homes. Our overall aim? To ensure the smoothest and most comfortable ride possible. To do so, we use a number of smart welding robots to handle the parts individually so that our customers can choose from a variety of options and let their stairlifts be manufactured aligned with their very own needs.

In Shanghai’s suburban district Songjiang, ancient history and modern culture come together in the most beautiful way. While the leaning Huzhu Pagoda is a relic of the city’s Buddhist past, Songjiang’s “New City” stands for Shanghai’s technology-driven present and future. Right here, our Multiple-Purpose Facility showcases our most advanced mobility solutions. One of them: the TWIN elevator. An innovation that saves our passengers precious time by operating two cars independently in the same shaft. And, let's be honest: looking up the shaft in our Songjiang facility simply gives us architectural goosebumps.

There’s a good chance you’ve already heard of urea. But besides its use in care products – treating dry skin or bleaching teeth – the ultra-flexible organic compound is also a big-time fertilizer, thanks to its high nitrogen content. In agriculture, high-grade solid granules are the preferred choice because it is ideal for mechanical application. Our best-in-class fluid bed granulation process ensures that we offer our clients just the most excellent quality – with no water waste, minimum dust emissions and in all granulate sizes.

A vehicle without springs and stabilizers? Unthinkable for our colleagues at the thyssenkrupp plant in Olpe, Germany. They know: the optimal combination of springs and stabilizers is essential to provide comfort and safety for all types of vehicles – whether it is a sedan or sports car. That’s why we aim to ensure a well-balanced synthesis of chassis components to produce first-class solutions for our automotive partners and to keep every driver as snug as a bug in the rug – even on the roughest road.

With ALUCOBOND, we offer our clients an architectural jack-of-all-trades. Our composite facade material is both robust and flexible. Its combination of formability, flatness, stability and weather resistance lets it lie around building fabrics like a second skin. That's why it inspires creativity like few other materials can. A striking example: the paläon Research and Experience Center "Schöninger Speere" in Lower Saxony, Germany. The innovative design approach creates a large-format mirror surface that reflects the surrounding landscape. In effect, it lets the center almost merge with its natural surroundings.

Whether designed for cranes, articulated buses or wind energy turbines: our slewing bearings are always customer-specific but never small and lightweight. Considering weights of up to several tons it's well understandable that our colleagues can hardly lift them by hand. To keep the world turning, they hence rely on strong but sensual support. Because sometimes, a bearing just has to be grabbed on the collar.

Our automotive experts follow a simple formula: reducing complexity so that our customers can concentrate on their cars and don't have to waste a thought on the production process of the parts. Of course, this claim also applies for the axle assembly. In this area, we know no one better than our colleagues at our Leipzig plant. They not only attach utmost performance to economically attractive solutions, reliability and flexibility but also share a deep passion for efficiently and ergonomically designed workflows – combined with a smart in-process monitoring. And because absolute precision is king, they get some helping robot hands in doing so. Why they do all that? Because they live by a second formula, too: fulfilling the highest quality requirements.
