Chevalier Group (Chinese: 其士集團) is a company based in Hong Kong, China. It has a division which distributes and installs Toshiba elevators in Hong Kong, China and Singapore since 1970 as well as IFE elevators in Singapore since in the late 2000s and Hong Kong only in late 2000s.


Chevalier established their Lift and Escalator Division in 1970 and it was the company's first division, which started distributing and installing Toshiba elevators and escalators. In 1972, Chevalier expanded their business in Singapore as the sole distributor of Toshiba elevators, and later in China in 1981. In the 1980s or 1990s, the division started distributing and installing Dong Yang and HELCO (Hyundai) elevators and escalators in Hong Kong and Singapore. It stopped distributing Dong Yang elevators in 2003 as the company was acquired by ThyssenKrupp. During the 1990's, Chevalier was also appointed as the sole distributor of Italian-brand Semag elevators in Singapore and Hong Kong (now changed to Lift Munich). Possibly in 2009, it started distributing and installing IFE elevators in Singapore. At the same year, Chevalier and Toshiba Elevator and Building Systems Corporation has changed from distributor to joint-venture relations.


Chevalier's Lift & Escalators division has maintain a long-term partnership with Toshiba Elevator and Building Systems Corporation. It operates the installation, testing, repair and maintenance of Toshiba elevators and escalators in Hong Kong, Macau, China and Singapore. Chevalier supplies, distributes and installs Toshiba elevators in Singapore since 1972. It also specializes on installation of IFE-branded elevators in Singapore (mainly for the Housing and Development Board (HDB) projects under the Lift Upgrading Programme) and Hong Kong.

It was also the sole distributor of Semag elevators from Italy in both Singapore and Hong Kong during the 1990's, of which a few installations still exists today and are mostly maintained by Chevalier.
