KONE Israel is the leading elevator company in Israel. Our story begins in 1961 with the founding of “Isralift”, which over the years has been invoved in the manufacture and installation elevators, as well as providing service for a variety of projects throughout the State of Israel. In 2013, the co-operation between KONE and Isralift culminated in a decision by KONE's management to acquire Isralift. The company has served as the Israeli branch of KONE since 2013 and at the beginning of 2018, the Israeli branch officially adopted the KONE brand to become KONE Israel.
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.
To bring the strategy to life, we have introduced four Ways to Win with our customers.
