KONE in Great Britain

At KONE, our mission is to improve the flow of urban life. As a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, KONE provides elevators, escalators and automatic building doors, as well as solutions for maintenance and modernization to add value to buildings throughout their life cycle.

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.


You can experience these innovations in architectural landmarks such as The Shard, 122 Leadenhall Street, 20 Fenchurch Street, Cannon Place, 30 St Mary Axe and Broadgate and 201 Bishopsgate buildings, BAA Terminal 5, Emirates Stadium, Brunel University, The Co-operative Group HQ, Citigroup, Jubilee Line and St. Georges Wharf.

KONE serves more than 400,000 customers across the globe. The majority of these are maintenance customers. Key customer groups include builders, building owners, facility managers and developers. Architects, authorities and consultants are also key parties in the decision-making process regarding lifts and escalators.
