Urbanization is a powerful force driving demand for our products and solutions.
We are helping to build smarter, more sustainable cities with solutions that improve the quality of urban life. Otis elevators and escalators move people faster and more efficiently through the airports, metros and high-rise buildings of modern cities. Carrier heating, ventilating and air-conditioning systems make indoor life more comfortable and productive, and our fire and security systems keep people safe and secure. Carrier's cold-chain management solutions preserve the global food supply from field to point of sale, keeping it safe for consumption.
As the world urbanizes, increased air travel follows. To meet this demand, UTC is helping to build planes that are quieter, more fuel efficient and less costly to maintain. Our PurePower engine dramatically reduces fuel consumption, emissions and noise. Our aerospace systems are found on virtually every aircraft in the air today, and Sikorsky is pushing the limits of autonomous flight with technologies that reduce pilot workload and improve safety during complicated maneuvers.
To ensure our technology leadership continues, we are investing in additive manufacturing and other advanced processes that will allow us to continue to provide our customers with the most reliable, efficient and affordable solutions.
