We think it's a benefit to have a collective voice on certain issues, such as safety, compliance, and introducing new technologies. NEII also helps us work with our colleagues across the industry.
The mission of NEII is very important to the overall industry, especially involving safety, code development, and innovation. It gives us a voice among the leaders of the elevator industry to come together, discuss issues, learn, and further the overall mission of the NEII companies.
Companies are members of NEII for a multitude of reasons, but primarily it revolves around the benefits to our organization and the benefits to the industry itself. With NEII's competent staff they can easily fulfill the needs of our business and other related businesses. They provide proficient and efficient solutions.
Thyssenkrupp believes that working toward common goals like safety and compliance helps us align and coordinate these issues with a common outcome. Industry reporting gives us valuable insight into industry trends. Also, the code finder and other resources that NEII provides, like the various committees, help drive industry cohesiveness.
NEII gives voice to the industry, pushing innovation and safety. The expertise of the NEII staff is broad and deep in the elevator industry. Through all of our work on the various committees, NEII is becoming more and more effective at promoting safety and innovation throughout the industry.
It's all about education. The world of building transportation is rapidly changing, and during that time you need an organization like NEII to help you educate the general public about those changes.
The benefit of having a full-time NEII staff is that they are able to stay focused on action plans and initiatives for the industry. What makes me proud of our affiliation with NEII is watching the improvement in safety measures. As the industry grows, it's really rewarding to see that NEII's work is having a positive impact.
