ThyssenKrupp Elevator Americas unveiled plans for a new $200-million headquarters near The Battery Atlanta in Cobb County, GA. A 420-foot testing tower will anchor the three-facility project, that will be built in collaboration with Braves Development Company.
The complex, which will house more than 900 full-time employees, features an elevator qualification and test tower, expected to be completed by early 2022, that will be the tallest of its kind in the U.S. and one of the tallest in the world.
Thyssenkrupp Elevator’s Andreas Schierenbeck says, “Our new test tower in Atlanta will be a testimony to thyssenkrupp’s commitment to investing in its global network of innovation centers, which all have forged ever-deepening ties with students and universities nearby.”
With 18 shafts, the Innovation Complex test tower can be used to trial new concepts and product pilots. The test tower will also conduct robust tests to ensure compliance with stringent safety requirements on standard elevators.
