Xizi Otis (Chinese: 西子奥的斯, sometimes abbreviated as simply XO) is an elevator company based in Hangzhou, China, a joint venture between Xizi Elevator Group and Otis Elevator Company. The company was established in 1997. It is one of Otis's largest joint ventures in China..


The origin of this company started out as Xizi Elevator Group, which was founded in 1981 in Hangzhou, China. Xizi exported its elevators outside China for the first time in 1993. On March 12, 1997, Otis formed a joint venture with Xizi called "Xizi Otis".

In 2004, Xizi Otis, along with Otis Elevator Company formed XO-LIFT (Chinese: 西奥电梯[1]) as part of a joint venture between the two companies.
