Over the years, Mitsubishi, one of the largest Japanese elevator manufacturers globally, has made significant strides in the lift manufacturing industry through continuous innovation and expansion into new markets. 

Recognised for its high-quality products, Mitsubishi has boasted a notable presence in the Singapore lift market since the 1960s. From commercial buildings to residential homes, Mitsubishi lifts serve multiple sectors in Singapore, earning a reputation for efficiency and reliability. 

What types of Mitsubishi lifts are available in Singapore?

Mitsubishi offers a diverse range of elevators to cater to the varying needs of its clientele. 

The NexWay series is a high speed elevator that is a popular choice for medium to high rise commercial buildings.

The ELENESSA and NEXIEZ series showcase the brand's innovation, providing space-saving yet high-capacity solutions. Utilising a machine-room-less system, these lifts are meant for medium rise commercial buildings. 

Mitsubishi also offers home elevators that incorporate the same machine-room-less system—a line that was designed specifically to enhance the ease and comfort of vertical mobility within private residences. 

What are some of the innovative technologies used in Mitsubishi lifts?

With the reputation of being one of the most popular lift manufacturers worldwide, Mitsubishi pushes the boundaries of technology to provide advanced solutions to its customers. 

The brand's Destination Oriented Allocation System (DOAS) analyzes real-time traffic data and assigns passengers to specific elevators to minimize waiting times and optimize travel efficiency within a building.

MelEye, a lift monitoring system, keeps a constant check on the functioning of lifts in a building. The system responds to fluctuations in passenger traffic in real-time, helping Building Managers to respond accordingly.

These are just a few examples of Mitsubishi's innovative lift technology. The brand continually raises the bar, striving to update and improve their lift designs.

How can I extend the lifespan of my Mitsubishi lift?

Getting the longest lifespan possible out of your Mitsubishi lift involves a combination of regular lift maintenance, swift handling of any issues that arise, and potentially modernising the lift equipment when necessary. 

If you own a lift, it's important that you familiarise yourself with the 2024 Maintenance Control Plan (MCP) by BCA Singapore. This plan doesn't merely suggest routine lift maintenance—rather, it advocates for a life cycle-oriented strategy that embraces both preventative and predictive maintenance. 

Adopting this plan will enhance the reliability and longevity of your lift, whilst minimising the chance of sudden breakdowns and associated high-cost repairs.

How often should I service my Mitsubishi lift?

In Singapore, it's a requirement for all lift owners to hire a registered lift service contractor for lift maintenance. Skipping this could cost up to $5,000 in fines. 

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

The frequency of lift maintenance is dependent on the type of lift:

  • For residential lifts, vertical platform lifts, and stairlifts: Service them every quarter or as often as Mitsubishi suggests (whichever is more frequent).

  • All other types of lifts: Service them monthly or as often as Mitsubishi suggests (whichever is more frequent).


As an owner of a Mitsubishi lift in Singapore, it is crucial to maintain the safety of your lift.
