NT Approved by Hitachi

EHC Japan is pleased to report that its revolutionary thermoplastic urethane handrail (NT) was approved for use by Hitachi late last year.

“Hitachi spent more than 6 months carefully scrutinizing the product and have come back to us with phenomenally favorable results.” says EHC Japan’s General Manager Patrick Bothwell.

“Hitachi’s linear-drive handrail test methodology is the most stringent in our industry – product validation at this level has us all very excited!” continues Bothwell.

NT significantly outlasted conventional rubber handrail on the Hitachi test.

Hitachi’s first orders for the product were placed the first week of January and were promptly delivered from EHC’s state-of-the-art splicing facility in Yokohama.
