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. Through more effective People Flow®, we make people's journeys safe, convenient and reliable, in taller, smarter buildings. In 2020, KONE had annual sales of EUR 9.9 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.



Íselekt ehf var stofnað 1994, þá strax hófst samstarf við KONE í Finnlandi. Sambandið þróaðist og árið 2004 keypti KONE meirihluta í Íselekt og nafninu var breytt í KONE ehf.

Frá upphafi hefur verið stöðugur vöxtur hjá fyrirtækinu og í dag eru KONE lyftur og rennistigar á stöðum eins og Flugstöðinni, Smáralind, Turninum og Kringlunni. Allir stærstu byggingaverktakar landssins eru meðal viðskiptavina KONE ehf.

KONE ehf hefur á að skipa reyndu starfsfólki í ráðgjöf, sölu, uppsetningum og þjónustu á lyftum og rennistigum.

Framkvæmdastjóri er Ólafur S. Einarsson.



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.

In 2021, KONE entered the next phase of strategy - "Sustainable success with customers”. During the four-year strategy period, we will focus on increasing the value we create for customers with new intelligent solutions and will embed sustainability even deeper across all of its operations.

At KONE, we want to contribute to better urban living.
