DEVELOPING SUSTAINABLE SMART CITIES
Our ambitious environmental targets focus on further improving the eco-efficiency of our solutions, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from our own operations.
At KONE, our mission is to improve the flow of urban life. 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, which add value to the life cycle of any building.
Through more effective People Flow®, we make people’s journeys safe, convenient and reliable, in taller, smarter buildings. Together with our partners and customers around the world, we help cities to become better places to live in. In 2016, KONE had annual net sales of EUR 8.8 billion, and at the end of the year over 52,000 employees. KONE class B shares are listed on the Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd. in Finland.
KONE Uganda Limited officially started operations in August 2014 after a successful acquisition of Marryat and Scott (Kenya) and Marryat East Africa (Uganda). Marryat East Africa was at the time the sole distributor of KONE products in East Africa since the late 1980s.
KONE has since grown to become one of the fastest growing elevator and escalator companies in East Africa. KONE Uganda currently serves over 100 clients.
We provide industry-leading elevators, escalators, and innovative solutions for maintenance and modernization. KONE Uganda manages its operations from Kampala catering for clients in Uganda, Rwanda and South Sudan.
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.
