Schindler has a global presence with key sites in North and South America, Europe, and Asia, and employs a global team of 70’000. Schindler's products are found all over the world (in fact, I just used one this morning to get up to my office), and benefit from strong brand recognition due to high quality, a good service network, and continued innovation. The value created by Schindler doesn’t end at the production, assembly and installation of elevators, escalators and moving walks; it also includes maintenance, repair and modernization of those products. They have been able to connect more than 30% of installations to the cloud for increased uptime and efficiency thanks to remote monitoring.

The company enjoys a high Obermatt growth rank of 68 due to its 41.9% jump in net income, high return on equity of 20.4% and an increase in cash flow by +84.7%. Schindler enjoyed increased operational efficiency, the recovery of supply chains, and positive impacts of its pricing strategies. This is why Obermatt Ranks show it as an overall better performer than nearly 75% of the competitors in the same industry. The Market Pulse Rank of 93 and strong Sentiment Rank of 84 show that we’re not alone in our positive opinion of Schindler.

However, there is a lot of competition in the field, and young businesses want to revolutionize the market potentially putting the position of Schindler as a world leader at risk. In addition, a low Obermatt Value Rank of 18 shows that the high growth comes at a price.
