Hong Kong lifts get new contractors

24 Apr 13 New contractors have been appointed to look after all 234 lifts maintained by Hong Kong’s Shineford Engineering, which begins a six-month ban next week.

The Electrical & Mechanical Services Department  has said that those responsible for all the lifts previously maintained by Shinefold Engineering have now appointed other registered contractors to take over the maintenance. The department has monitored the change of registered contractors for the affected buildings, and set up a hotline and deployed staff to the buildings to meet the people in charge.

The department will suspend Shineford's registration as a registered lift contractor for six months from 1 May. The ban follows an incident on 2 March involving the breakage of suspension ropes. Shineford was found to have failed to ensure that lift works were carried out properly.
