About


KONE provides technological solutions that add value to the life cycle of buildings and towers, both new and existing. Along with the development, manufacture, and supply of elevators, escalators and automatic doors, with advanced service solutions. KONE enables smart and natural growth for both its customers and the city, by designing, planning and balancing people's movement. KONE is proud to be at the forefront of Israeli industry, and to provide technological, quality, modern, and reliable solutions. Our goal is to improve the movement of urban life between and within buildings, using the information and data collected during our 100 years of experience that has contributed to the development of smart cities. Some 24 million elevators work daily around the world and some 1.2 million of which are manufactured and maintained by KONE

In 2018, KONE had approximately 57,000 employees serving more than 450,000 customers in more than 60 countries. The Company’s headquarters is located in Helsinki, Finland. KONE has eight R&D centers and seven manufacturing plants, along with a worldwide distribution network in 140 countries.

KONE is a Finnish public company, founded in 1910. The Company has been active in Israel for many years through Isralift, the Israeli elevator company, which was founded in 1961 and served as KONE’s Israel’s sole licensed provider. In 2013, KONE has acquired Isralift, which became an integral part of KONE global family. In 2018, the brand name was officially relaunched and became KONE Israel. Together, we have generated added value of local knowledge, professional excellence, innovation, and safety.

Vision and strategy

Our vision is to deliver the best People Flow® experience. This means we understand that different types of buildings serve different purposes, which has an impact on the flow of people and on the surrounding environment. It also means we provide Ease, Effectiveness and Experiences to our users and customers, over the full life cycle of buildings.

How do we solve this? Through flexible solutions and services that provide added value in the best way possible for clients and users. KONE manufactures elevators with technologies that identify the requested floor, the expected loads, and that are capable of predicting and responding to future malfunctions.

Technological leadership

KONE owns more than 3,000 patents, and in 2018 Forbes magazine listed KONE as one of the world’s 100 most innovative companies, for the seventh time in a row. In addition, KONE invests in the development of innovative and green solutions, for which it has been awarded the highest rating in the energy sector – the “A” rating.

Research and development

Tytyri is Finland’s leading R&D center. At the site, KONE can carry out tests under extreme conditions, which are much harsher than in regular buildings. The depth of the shafts means KONE can test elevator speeds of up to 70 km/hour, or around 19 meters per second at conventional acceleration rates. The “Asian Twin” of this center is located in Kushan, China.

UltraRope® KONE, provides unrivalled elevator eco-efficiency, reliability and durability. It eliminates the disadvantages of existing steel ropes – high energy consumption, rope stretch, large moving masses, and downtime caused by building sway.

KONE invented the world’s first elevator without a machine room – MonoSpace® KONE for flexible elevator solution for residential or commercial buildings. KONE Double-deck elevators with two connected cells allow transportation of about 40 passengers from two separate floors at the same time, and significantly increases passenger’s capacity. This solution will soon come to Israel.

Complementary solutions for elevators

KONE manufactures complementary solutions based on “Internet of Things” systems and artificial intelligence, which add value to buildings, bring them to the forefront of technology and enabling customized fast and secure movement.

During 2019, the KONE Residenatial Flow solution will be launched for residential buildings. This technology provides the building’s residents with the ability to interface directly to the main entrance and the building’s elevator through an application to which tenants connect, give and receive information. The system enables automated operations as direct and smooth access from the building entrance to the house floor, without the need for waiting, remote control, monitoring and managing guest entry and more.

In addition, the Connected Services 24/7 system based on this technology will be launched in 2019. The system enables monitoring, analysis and online viewing of data from elevator sensors, thus improving equipment performance, operating time, reliability and safety. The system can predict faults in advance and undertake preventive maintenance that will save many resources.
