The major partners of Kone

After the competitors, let's discover Kone's allies with two examples of recent strategic partnerships:


In 2019, the Kone group has notably joined forces with the American giant IBM in order to transform its operations and its technological capacities throughout the world. Kone's new 24/7 connected services use IoT platforms to deliver intelligent services to lifts and escalators.


Also in 2019, another interesting merger took place with an offer for Kone to take over the lift division of ThyssenKrupp AG. As this division was suffering from a lack of profitability, Kone offered €17 billion for its takeover. However, due to the Covid-19 crisis that followed in early 2020, this transaction has been postponed and no further action has been taken for the time being, which should be followed with interest.
