KONE – one of the top players in the elevator and escalator industry – opened its newest U.S. facility. Named KONE AllenPlace, it is located at 450 Century Parkway in Allen, TX.
The grand opening took place on Monday, June 20 with an official ribbon cutting ceremony.
The 173,952 square-foot facility houses KONE Americas’ supply operations, major project engineering, research and development department, and other product and installation support functions. The facility also features a 128-foot tall test tower with six elevator shafts to evaluate prototypes and new components before they go into production.
The facility is expected to bring as many as 80 jobs to Allen. Texas-based KONE employees will relocate from the former office location at One Allen Center.
Jussi Oijala, SVP at KONE, will serve as the site leader, driving KONE’s vision for the facility.
