KONE, a global leader in the lifts and escalator industry, has acquired Express Elevators Ltd (Express), a British company that specialises in the maintenance, repair, modernization and installation of elevators.
Express is based in Yorkshire and located in close proximity to KONE's regional offices in Keighley. The company currently has over 2000 elevators in service and employs approximately one hundred people.
