The contracts with ECE of Hamburg, Germany, the premier developer of downtown shopping malls in Europe, call for Otis to complete the installations in Austria, Poland, Hungary and Czech Republic by 2008.
"We are proud that ECE has once again shown confidence in Otis technology by choosing us for this entire series of projects," said Otis President Ari Bousbib. "Our selection confirms that Otis products meet the needs of customers in some of Europe's most dynamic markets."
In addition to the installation contracts, ECE has signed a 10-year maintenance agreement with Otis, covering all units in all locations.
