KONE Israel is the leading elevator company in Israel
Our story begins in 1961 with the founding of Isralift Ltd., which for many years focused on manufacturing and installing elevators and providing service to a wide range of projects throughout Israel. During that time, the company was also Israel’s sole licensed provider of products made by the global corporation KONE.
In 2013, the cooperation and synergy between the companies resulted in KONE’s decision to buy Isralift outright. Since then, Isralift has been the Israeli branch of KONE and a member of the global KONE family.
At the beginning of 2018, KONE’s Israeli branch made the official decision to adopt the KONE brand and become KONE Israel. The natural connection between Israel’s Isralift and Finland’s KONE, which began about a decade ago, joins the experience, community roots, and family atmosphere of the industrial workers in Israel with the proven track record and reputation of this international company specializing in technology, innovation, safety, and the promise of a better tomorrow. Together, we have generated added value of knowledge, professional excellence, reliability, and a fierce desire to meet the new challenges brought about by progress.
