Freedom of Choice



If you are an elevator professional, you know this feeling: you have an elevator modernization project at hand, you get  into  the shaft and measure everything, you check the status of existing components and make a list of what should be updated. Then you come back to the office and start thinking about the best tools available to avoid extra on-site works that are always a hassle.
And the fact is, there is an incredible diversity of elevator installations out there, and in many cases the new door that was installed in a breeze in the last project just can’t fit in the new project at hand, or it is not available in the peculiar finish of the building, or maybe the building owners really would like to have panoramic doors instead.
It seems that you can’t have it all with just one door. This is why Wittur Group provides you with multiple choices as far as modernization is concerned. Together they provide you with every feature you might like to use, and then some.

A Matter of Taste



Some elements of building design, such as the elevator, are usually considered from a strictly utilitarian point of view. The elevator must first and foremost provide safe and reliable transportation for the people living and working there. This is why many building designs, although impressive, are not innovative as far as building transportation is concerned. The elevator is treated as a commodity that needs to be provided and not as a design element in and of itself.
Today, the elevator is not always just about moving people; sometimes, it can be a distinctive, iconic feature of the building itself. Aside from its functional ability, it can serve as a focal point of any building, providing a combination of elegant finishes and visibility. It can offer unexplored possibilities to turn architects’ and designers’ ideas into reality.

WITTUR ARGENTINA SA: New President



Fernando, how did you enter the vertical transport sector?
As a student of civil engineering at National-Regional Technological University of Buenos Aires, an employee of Soimet contacted  my mother and asked if I would be interested in entering  that company in 1996. I was also a musician, I taught piano and guitar as a music teacher. However, already in the fourth year of my career, I had no experience in construction practice, so I joined a construction company and I managed unique civil works as director of works: a complex of duplex in Las Toninas, summer resort the Province of Buenos Aires. In 1997, construction began to decline and I re-consider the lift connection with the construction. I had a meeting with Adrian Gonzalez, the MD at that time. That was how I joined Soimet in June 1997 where, with Hernán Amoretti, we were Adrian's right hand in the engineering department.
