KONE Acquires San Francisco Company

KONE has announced that it has acquired Empire Elevator Co., Inc., founded in San Francisco in 1978. KONE said Empire's operations and employees will be folded into KONE over the next several months. According to KONE, Empire President Bruce Moore is to play a key role in the newly combined company. "The Empire and KONE operations will fit well together, and we are thrilled to be adding great new customers in the very important San Francisco market," said Larry Wash, KONE's executive vice president for the Americas.

While KONE will acquire all the commercial business, the few residential customers Empire had will be forced to look for another company to install, service & repair their residential units. Inclinator Co. of Ca. and TL Shield & Associates continues to support our customers as well as those now looking for a company to handle their residential and commercial needs.
