KONE is one of the global leaders in the lift and escalator industry. KONE’s objective is to offer the best People Flow® experience by developing and delivering solutions that enable people to move smoothly, safely, comfortably and without waiting in buildings in an increasingly urbanising environment. KONE provides industry-leading lifts, escalators, automatic building doors and integrated solutions to enhance the People Flow in and between buildings. KONE’s services cover the entire lifetime of a building, from the design phase to maintenance, repairs and modernisation solutions. In 2021, KONE had annual net sales of EUR 10.5 billion, and at the end of the year over 60,000 employees. KONE class B shares are listed on the Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd. in Finland.

KONE Plc is a member of Lift and Escalator Industry Association (LEIA) and Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA).
KONE was the first lift and escalator company to achieve A class energy efficiency certification through the international ISO 24745 standard. We have pioneered lift energy efficiency technology including regenerative drive, standby solutions, and the revolutionary KONE UltraRope®. KONE UltraRope® can cut the energy consumption of a 500-meter lift ride by up to 15%. We have pioneered sustainable escalator technology such as the TransVario drive that can reduce escalator energy consumption by up to 16% and significantly minimise oil consumption, improving sustainability and reducing total cost of ownership.
Our vision is to create 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.
KONE’s efforts to meet its strategic targets are supported by development programmes that are designed to help us turn our strategy into reality.
We are committed to making KONE a great place to work, where we aim to inspire, engage and develop our employees to deliver great results. Our gender pay gap report provides details on how we are addressing that gap along with our pay gap figures.
