Our present-day success is driven by our commitment to traditional core values such as customer service, quality, and safety, combined with our key strengths of creativity and innovation to produce intelligent solutions in response to customer needs. Our values describe how Schindler, as a company, and our employees behave, and are the principles upon which we base our business relationships:

Safety

More than 69,000 Schindler employees work around the clock to serve 1.5 billion people using our lifts and escalators every day. Safety for each one of our customers and employees is foremost.

Create value for the customer

As a service company, we rely on strong customer orientation as the basis for design and delivery of all products and services, as well as the continuous optimization of our internal processes.

Commitment to people development

Our commitment to be perceived as a valuable partner for our customers can only be achieved through talented, engaged and skilled employees. We develop our people to understand our customers’ needs and tailor the most efficient solutions from our innovative products and services portfolio. We empower our people at all levels of the organization to develop leadership and decision-making skills in order to shape the company’s successful future.

Quality

We aim to reflect genuine Swiss quality not only in product design but also in delivery, maintenance, and modernization. Our century old legacy and track record in delivering value is a consequence of our ability to deliver reliable solutions.

Long-term strategic focus

Our long-term strategy is focused on generating sustained value for all the company’s stakeholders. The aim is to grow faster than the global lift and escalator market and to build on a strong culture of innovation to improve our operating results. To support the realization of these objectives, Schindler is implementing operational measures to increase customer satisfaction and operational efficiency, as well as strategic initiatives to promote innovation and enhance quality.


Tradition of innovation

Innovation and technology

We have been a pioneer in vertical transportation since our company’s founding in 1874. Drawing on this strong culture and legacy of innovation, we continue to drive new systems and technologies aimed at anticipating the world’s needs for future mobility and improving the quality of life in cities.

Over the years, we have successfully launched numerous innovations in the market, including destination control systems and the first-ever patent for elevators without a machine room. Other landmark examples include development of exclusive elevator suspension traction media and ‘InTruss’ modernization, which enables existing escalators to be upgraded with significantly reduced building impact.

With the advent of artificial intelligence, we have also established ourselves as a leading company in the development of the Internet of Elevators and Escalators (IoEE). ‘Schindler Ahead’ provides a unique, cloud-based digital toolbox connecting machine, users, technicians, and around-the-clock call centers in a closed-loop ecosystem. By investing in Digital Twin technology, Schindler is laying the groundwork to capture the full potential of artificial intelligence across the entire value chain. The start-up BuildingMinds develops solutions to optimize the management of entire building portfolios.

As one of the industrial sector’s leading digital companies, Schindler will continue to invest in the smart networking of products and digital processes.
