Schindler Elevator Corp. has been awarded a multi-million-dollar service contract with Caesar's Entertainment Corp. to maintain over 1,200 elevators, escalators and moving walks in 31 hotels and casinos located mainly in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, N.J., as well as various other cities across the United States. The five-year contract includes full maintenance.
"We evaluated a number of local and regional service providers as well as all of the national elevator and escalator companies," said Andrew Kesler, director of strategic sourcing for Caesars. "Of all the service providers we evaluated, Schindler best understood our needs and responded with a proposal to handle our service and preventive maintenance as part of a national account program that exactly meets our needs."
"Schindler has a long-standing relationship with Caesar's, which originated at Harrah's in Atlantic City, and has grown tremendously over the years," said Phil Harty, director, Key Account Management at Schindler. "We are delighted to have been awarded this prestigious contract and continue our partnership."
