The project includes two contract packages by two different contractors. Contract Package 1 named CP01 will be constructed by Taisei-DMCI Joint Venture and awarded Hitachi Elevator Philippines, 13 elevators and 26 escalators for four stations of Valenzuela in Manila, Meycauayan, Marilao, and Bocaue in the Province of Bulacan.

Philippine's elevator and escalator market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2019 to 2025(1). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, building projects around the globe has been halted and the demands have dipped from around 3,700 units of elevators and escalators per year to around 2,300 units in the Philippines. As the world navigates towards the next normal, it is anticipated that elevator and escalator industry will expand significantly on account of increasing urbanization and rapid expansion of construction sector in the coming years.

Hitachi will continue to broadly use cutting-edge digital technology, including the Internet of Things ("IoT"), to develop products and services, and globally provide safe, secure and comfortable elevators and escalators as well as services that help resolve customers' issues in urban spaces to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society.
