Montgomery Elevator Company



Succeeded by

Montgomery KONE

Acquired by




Montgomery Elevator Company was a United States based elevator company, based in Moline, Illnois.


Montgomery Elevator Company was founded in 1892. The company entered the elevator industry in 1910 and established its first branch office in Kansas City in 1914. It was the fourth largest elevator company in the U.S. at that time. Montgomery installed its first high-speed gearless elevators in the Kansas City Power and Light Building, which at that time was the tallest building in the west of Missisippi River until 1976. The elevators in the building were first modernized in 1961 and again refurbished in 1992.

In 1994, the Finland-based elevator company Kone acquired Montgomery, hence, the company became Montgomery KONE until 1999, when it simply became Kone.
