HITACHI LTD and Hitachi Building Systems Company Wednesday announced the official launch of the Asia Training Centre in Chon Buri province for engineers involved in the elevator and escalator business. 

The training centre, which is Hitachi’s first outside Japan, started soft operations last month, and is positioned to focus on installation and maintenance skills and safety controls for Hitachi’s elevators and escalators in the region. 

It will foster mid-level engineers in Asian countries and ensure higher quality and safety than ever, which Hitachi claims is its top priority. The plan is to increase the level of installation and maintenance operations of elevators and escalators in the Asian region and accelerate the development of engineers at the same time.

Tadashi Minemura, general manager of Hitachi’s Asia Training Centre, said it was planning to train 180 field engineers including installation, maintenance and quality-assurance staff by September. Costs and training budgets were not disclosed.
