KONE Corporation, press release, January 11, 2016
KONE Corporation, one of the global leaders in the elevator and escalator industry, has won an order to deliver 111 elevators to the Nanjing Kingfine Center, an office and residential development set in the burgeoning neighborhood along Baiji Lake in Nanjing, China. Among the elevator units, KONE will provide 28 KONE MiniSpace(TM) and 23 KONE MonoSpace® elevators. In addition, KONE will supply 60 KONE TravelMaster(TM) escalators for the project which is set to be completed in early 2017.
The Nanjing Kingfine Center will consist of one 168-meter office building, four residential towers and one commercial podium. Set to be located near the Baijia Lake area, the project will be constructed at the interchange of Nanjing's upcoming metro lines 1 and 3, which already includes two malls and has been fast developing into one of China's most buzzing and picturesque areas.
"KONE's good reputation as a reliable partner played a critical role in the selection process for this order," says William B. Johnson, Executive Vice President for KONE Greater China. "We are very happy to be involved in this great project and look forward to starting the supply of our solutions for the different towers and buildings inside the Nanjing Kingfine complex."
