KONE – Dedicated to people flow

One of the world’s leading companies in the elevator and escalator sector, KONE works in partnership with discerning and sophisticated customers who value the highest levels of quality, safety and technical expertise. Indeed, developing, manufacturing and installing products, as well as modernising and maintaining them, this innovative company has created solutions that deliver unrivalled customer experience, whilst continually introducing new products, services and business models that fuel corporate growth.

Innovative solutions are often the simplest, but you do have to come up with the ideas in the first place. This is as true today as it was when the wheel was first invented. At KONE, the R&D team is constantly working on new concepts and ideas, targeting a new launch of its MonoSpace brand, for instance. This does not mean a completely new product, but rather an updated, improved version of its universally popular portfolio that offers new functionality and new opportunities, such as allowing an elevator to fit more easily into a building’s shaft.

MonoSpace: The Next Generation, launched in March 2009, is an excellent case-in-point; in fact, it is the company’s most exciting offering for some time, providing a level of energy efficiency that has set a new benchmark for the industry.
