Established in Osaka in 1948, Fujitec has a global presence with operations in 24 countries/regions. The brand runs its operations from headquarters in the Americas, Japan, South Asia, East Asia and Europe, and has earned a worldwide reputation for quality.

Fujitec Singapore Corpn. Ltd., established in 1972, specialises in producing, installing, and maintaining transportation systems such as lifts, escalators, and travelators. The company has outfitted over 25,000 lifts in numerous tall buildings across Singapore—their installations can be found in a wide variety of locations such as HDB projects, hospitals, schools, offices, shopping centres, private homes and industrial zones.

What are the different Fujitec lift models available in Singapore?

There are two key models in Fujitec's lineup - the REXIA and ZEXIA lifts. These two models are popular choices here in Singapore, with the former being a passenger lift with a machine room, while the latter being a machine-room-less lift.

Fujitec independently manufactures all control-related components, including everything from control circuits to inverters. This ensures high reliability in the overall operation of the lift. 

The ZEXIA and REXIA lift models use gearless traction machines known for their low power consumption. Additionally, an electric power regenerative unit, located between the lift controller and the power supply, contributes to overall energy savings by cutting down on electrical energy consumption.

What are the key technologies used in Fujitec lifts?

Fujitec lifts utilise several notable, advanced technologies to provide efficient and dependable service.

One of the highlights would be Fujitec's machine-room-less technology. Traditional lifts require a separate room for the machine that powers the lift. However, machine-room-less lifts integrate this machinery directly into the shaft, offering not only a space-saving solution, but also greater energy efficiency. 

Fujitec has also ventured into Destination Dispatch Systems, a significant innovation that optimizes lift efficiency—by grouping passengers based on their destination floor and reducing wait times.

How can I extend the lifespan of my Fujitec lift?

Think of regular maintenance for your Fujitec lift as a routine medical check-up. Done correctly and promptly, lift maintenance can act as a shield against the financial impact resulting from system downtime and the subsequent repair or replacement expenses. 

If you're a lift owner, we encourage you to learn more about 2024's Maintenance Control Plan (MCP) by BCA Singapore. It recommends a life cycle strategy for lift maintenance which goes beyond just usual upkeep—consideration must also be given to proactive and anticipatory maintenance as well.

This approach seeks to improve your lift's dependability and lifespan, while decreasing the risk of unexpected malfunctions and expensive repair work.

How often should a Fujitec lift be serviced?

In Singapore, all lift owners are obliged to engage a registered lift service contractor for the maintenance of their lifts. Failure to do so could lead to penalties that reach up to $5,000. 

You can find registered lift contractors such as Hin Chong in the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) directory of registered contractors & licensed builders.

Regarding the frequency of lift maintenance, it is recommended that: 

  • Residential lifts, vertical platform lifts, and stairlifts follow Fujitec's suggested service frequency if available. Alternatively, they should be serviced every quarter (opt for the more frequent option)

  • All other types of lifts should follow Fujitec's suggested service frequency if available, or be serviced monthly (once again, opt for the more frequent option)


If you're a Fujitec lift owner in Singapore, it's crucial to ensure your lift's safety via regular lift maintenance.
