Maximum mobility for the fans of the Texas Rangers: TK Elevator supplies 24 elevators and 13 escalators at Globe Life Field

  • TK Elevator equips prestigious Globe Life Field stadium with state-of-the-art vertical transportation systems.
  • All 37 units are connected to MAX, TK Elevator’s cloud- and IoT-based digital platform enabling enhanced service and predictive maintenance that help ensure maximum system uptime.
  • TK Elevator has most modern transportation systems at some of the top stadiums and arenas in North America.

Düsseldorf, April 26, 2021 – Fans at Globe Life Field, home of the baseball team Texas Rangers, enjoy maximum mobility with 24 elevators and 13 escalators from TK Elevator, when they are watching their favorite team playing. The 37 precision-engineered vertical transportation units, which were turned over to the Texas Rangers in March 2020, are also equipped with MAX, the elevator industry’s first cloud- and IoT-based digital platform enabling enhanced service and predictive maintenance.

Globe Life Field is the Texas Rangers’ new $1.2 billion ballpark and was site of the 2020 World Series. The World Series was the second major sports championship in 2020 to be played in a stadium supported by TK Elevator as Hard Rock Stadium in Miami also features elevators and escalators from TK Elevator.

For many years, TK Elevator has been closely connected to some of the top sports venues in North America. In nearby Fort Worth, Texas, TK Elevator supplied 8 elevators and 8 escalators for the Dickies Arena, a 14,000-seat arena located within the Will Rogers Memorial Center.

TK Elevator has an extensive footprint within some of the United States’ most iconic buildings including the One World Trade Center in New York City, home to the fastest elevators in the Western hemisphere, and Pearson International Airport in Toronto. Moreover, TK Elevator has been contracted by Hudson Yards to design and install up to 40 TWIN elevator systems for its 50 Hudson Yards building; 27 elevators for the 55 Hudson Yards building; and 12 elevator and escalator units for The Shed. Hudson Yards is the largest private real estate development in U.S. history and the largest development in New York City since Rockefeller Center.

There are approximately 20,000 TK Elevator employees across North America. More than 900 employees will be located at the new North American headquarter The Battery Atlanta. There, the elevator test tower will be used to test new concepts and product pilots, including high-speed elevators TWIN and MULTI, the revolutionary rope-less and sideways-moving elevator system. In addition, the test tower will also conduct robust tests to ensure compliance with stringent safety requirements on standard elevators.
