EHC Products To Be Featured On “How It’s Made”

The Discovery Channel has announced this season’s line up for their series “How It’s Made”. The program focuses on world-leading techniques used in the manufacturing and production of common everyday items, and escalator handrails manufactured by EHC, will be featured on this remarkable and fascinating program.

EHC has a well-known reputation within the Lift Industry for producing high quality products and setting standards within the sector. As a result, EHC was selected to showcase the various escalator handrail production methods. EHC was thrilled to be asked to be a part of this popular television show and opened its doors to allow first ever filming of their production methods.

Productions Maj. visited EHC in the spring of 2005 to film the production. The final footage shows conventional rubber manufacturing, and in contrast EHC’s state of the art thermoplastic urethane extrusion process – a patented process invented by EHC’s head office in Canada. This handrail allows for custom vibrant colours, exotic colors such as see-through and glow-in-the dark and antimicrobial protection to be added to the handrail during the manufacturing process.

How It’s Made has been very successful in expanding its reach globally and the series now airs in many other countries including Australia, China, Hong Kong, Korea, Taiwan, UK and the USA. The English episode in Canada will be the first to air on the Discovery Channel Tuesday, February 7th at 8:30 p.m . The program will also be aired globally in other languages – these dates will be announced shortly.
