Effects of the Corona Virus on Modernization and Construction Equipment

Toronto, ON – We are noticing a trend with respect to the lead times for elevator and escalator modernization and construction equipment. Since many of the major components originate from China, we have concerns related to reliability and consistency of production lines and possible long lead times from the manufacturers of motors, escalators, screens and other major parts.

We anticipate minor delays (few weeks) in some cases to major delays as time elapses in production in China and South Korea. While it is a wait and see approach, we expect that if you order or have ordered equipment from China, there may be significant delays which will impact planning and people resources in North American markets.
