DOPPLER S.A. is pleased to announce the strategic partnership with CCK Group for the design and manufacture of elevators/escalators serving primarily the market of China. In 2016, after successful conferences at the Great Hall of People in Beijing, 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 base for the creation of the Joint Venture was Sichuan Express Elevators and Escalators, a former Joint venture of CCK group and OTIS, which was established in 2004, aiming at the production and installation of elevators/escalators in the Chinese market. In the existing facilities can be produced almost 8.000 elevators per year while the maximum sales volume was achieved in 2013, when 7.000 elevators were produced.

Upon the expiration of the agreement with Otis, CCK group considered not to renew it but to enter into a new agreement with Doppler S.A., which offered , among others, the Doppler brand and  its valuable know-how. Moreover, 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. constitutes one of the largest subsidiaries of China Chuan Kai Industrial Group Co., Ltd. (CCK Group). Main target remains the production of DOPPLER complete lift packages in the existing Sichuan Doppler Elevators and escalators premises initially; however new facilities and innovative plant will be on board in a short period of time.

The Mother Company, DOPPLER S.A,, provides on daily base, technical support to Sichuan DOPPLER Elevator Co., not only for the improvement of existing products but also for the design and manufacture of new upcoming models, based on the Chinese market needs. At the moment, every integrated/customized lift solution is mainly studied and produced in DOPPLER S.A. Greece.
