HIKONE, Japan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fujitec Singapore Corpn. Ltd. (Head Office: Bedok South Avenue, Singapore; Managing Director William Wong), a group subsidiary of FUJITEC CO., LTD. (Head Office: Shiga Prefecture, Japan; President and CEO Takao Okada), has recently received a major bulk order for about 300 residential elevators from the Housing & Development Board of Singapore (hereinafter referred to as “HDB”).

The HDB 33rd Term Housing project is for new homes across the public housing estates island wide and to be completed in the next four to five years. The order covers about 300 elevators, including high-speed models, to be installed in high-rise residential buildings with 30 floors or more.

To date, Fujitec Singapore has delivered a cumulative total of about 20,000 units to the HDB, consisting of new installations and replacement projects, since the first order for 2,000 elevators in 1972.
