Kone Plc is a global leader in elevator and escalator industry. Based out of Finland, Kone provides elevators, escalators and automatic building doors, as well as solutions for maintenance and modernisation to add value to buildings throughout their life cycle. Kone had annual sales of EUR 10.5 billion, and 60,000 employees.
Kone enlisted JCS transport to help them achieve FORS Bronze Accreditation so they could continue to operate through the UK’s cities in a safe and efficient manner. Kone has a fleet of over 40 vehicles running remotely from their operating centre in Barking, Essex.
Kone employs a fleet of Light Commercial Vehicles to transport engineers and their tools to carry out maintenance and repairs on lifts, escalators, and automatic building doors. They needed to secure FORS Bronze to fulfil contractual obligations with customers within the London area, and to meet road transport compliance standards.
