About KONE Israel

KONE provides technological solutions that add value to the lifecycle of buildings and towers, both new and existing. Alongside the development, manufacture and supply of elevators, escalators and automatic doors with advanced solutions. KONE supports the smart and natural growth of its clients and cities through design, structure and a balanced flow of its population. The company is proud to be at the cutting edge of Israel’s industry and provide technological, high-quality, modern and reliable solutions.

KONE is a Finnish public company that was established in 1910. The company has been operating in Israel for many years through the Israeli elevators company Isralift, which was established in 1961 and served as KONE’s official and exclusive local distributor. In 2013, this cooperation ripened into an acquisition of Isralift, which became an integral part of the Global KONE, and in 2018 the brand’s name was officially adopted and the company’s name was changed to KONE Israel.
The integration between the companies enables KONE to combine its local knowledge and experience with the capabilities of a global corporation that specializes in technology, innovation, and safety.
The company’s headquarters are located in Helsinki, Finland, and it has eight R&D centers and seven manufacturing facilities, in addition to a network of distributers in 140 countries. The company employs about 57,000 employees, who serve more than 450,000 customers in more than 60 countries across the globe. Out of an estimated total of 24 million elevators in the world, KONE manufactured and maintains around 1.2 million. The company aims to improve the intra-building and inter-building urban traffic through information and data it gathered in its 100 years of experience, and contribute to the development of smart cities.

Effective Solutions for Maximizing Passenger Flow

Across the world, cities become denser and towers rise up, while areas remain the same, so that “Human Traffic Jams” are formed and high-rise construction becomes essential. KONE provides solutions for multi-passenger traffic alongside with reducing the loads in the elevators and escalators industry, and offers solutions for effective and maximal passenger flow, with professionalism and creativity. KONE manufactures elevators with destination and load prediction capabilities, and even the ability to predict and respond to future malfunctions.

Technological Leadership, Green Solutions

KONE owns more than 3,000 patents. In 2018, Forbes Magazine included KONE in its “The World’s 100 Most Innovative Companies” list for the seventh consecutive year. In addition, KONE invests in developing innovative and green solutions, which entitled the company to the highest energy ranking – A.

Complementary Elevator Solutions

KONE manufactures complementary solutions based on IoT and AI technologies that provide added value to buildings, bring them to the forefront of technology and enable customized, fast and secure traffic. In 2019, the KONE Residential Flow solution for residential buildings wull be be launched. This technology provides the residents with a digital interface to the main entrance and the elevator through an app to which they can connect, deliver and receive information. The system enables automatic actions such as a smooth and direct movement from the entrance to the apartment’s floor without waiting or taking any action, remote control, viewing, guest entry management and more.

In addition, in 2019, KONE will launch 24/7 Con­nected Services solution, which is based on cloud and AI technologies. This system would enable to monitor, analyze and display online data from the elevators’ sensors, thus improving equipment performance, response times, reliability and safety. The system enables malfunction prediction and preventive maintenance that would save a lot of resources in the future.

Research and Development

Tytyri is the main R&D center in Finland, which is located in the depths of a mine and enables experimenting with elevators for the world’s tallest buildings. This lab is unique in its ability to maintain elevators that move in it for distances of more than 300 meters. Various tests can be performed in Tytyri in real-world conditions. The “Asian Twin” of this facility is located in Kunshan, China. One of KONE’s technologies is KONE UltraRope® which provides ecological efficiency, unmatched reliability and durability and improved elevator performance. This technology cancels the disadvantages of existing steel wire ropes – high energy consumption, stretchiness of the cable, high moving mass and downtimes due to sways. KONE invented the world’s first machine-room-less elevator, KONE MonoSpace® for low to medium buildings. The company’s Double-Deck elevator has two decks, stacked one over the other, and it enables the transport of up to 40 passengers from two floors simultaneously, and greatly increases the passenger capacity. This solution would soon arrive to Israel.
