As Multi approaches its final phase before market launch, the company intends to focus even more on research and development activities and the ongoing industrialization process in the future.

For this reason Prof. Michael Cesarz, former CEO Multi at thyssenkrupp Elevator, has decided to leave thyssenkrupp Elevator at July 1, 2020 to pursue another professional challenge outside our Group.
