A Chinese company rides the innovation wave.
The elevator market, world over, is fast outgrowing the singular-component supply stage. The future is all about integrated elevator- control solutions. One of the bigger players in this new frontier is China’s INVT.
INVT was one of the earliest companies to provide integrated elevator-control solutions. Today, it is one of the top three elevator-control- system manufacturers in China. INVT products are available in Poland, Italy, Portugal, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, the Netherlands, Turkey, Iran, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, India, South Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar and Bangladesh.
INVT offers two kinds of elevator solutions: the elevator inverter CHV180 to support geared and gearless machines, and the EC100 and EC160 elevator integrated controllers for geared and gearless machines. The company specializes in manufacturing V3F drives, integrated elevator-drive systems, programmable logic controllers, servos, touchscreens, industrial- control equipment, new energy technologies, rail traction, servo and motion-control systems, and energy-management and building-intelligence systems, to name a few.

With a strong focus on R&D, the company has been instrumental in developing advanced, high-quality drives and has achieved tremendous growth.

It has partnered with KONE Turkey, KLEEMANN in Greece and HISA in Vietnam.
