Great seeing everyone at ECNY! Hope to see you again next year!
What better way to say “I love you” to your valentine than by giving them a box of vandal resistant elevator buttons? Um… wait, no, that’s probably a bad idea. But your elevators will love them!
In this updated video we re-introduce our new game-changing combination safety brush and lighting system. Its a quick and relatively inexpensive way to improve both the safety and aesthetics of most escalators and autowalks.
Our parts photographer, Brian, brought this to our attention. He thought it would be really handy for anyone working on MAC door equipment, and suggested we focus some attention on it.
We told him, “Brian! That’s a great idea. This kit is very much underutilized.” And so here it is: MAC Parts Kit, Part Number US521099
If you’re working on MAC equipment, you’ll no doubt find this parts kit indispensable!
We want to thank everyone who voted for us! We are honored to announce we won 1st Place in Elevator World’s Ellies Awards in the category of “Best Supplier – Other.”
We are always surprised and happy to hear when young people have a passion for elevators, and here is a wonderful example that our customer DC Elevator shared on their website:

We recently took some new pictures, so it follows that it was time to update our sales team’s intro video…
Four elevator or escalator parts. (Yes, four this time!) Four riddles. The challenge: Can you name that part?
(As always, if you can’t view the above video from your work computer, you’ll probably have more luck on your smartphone.)
I am so excited to share my experience with Junior Achievement of the Quad Cities. This is my third time participating in the program and each time I have this opportunity, my appreciation for the Junior Achievement program grows. Junior Achievement is a nonprofit organization that is committed to helping students gain the knowledge and skill to make sound financial decisions. This program is available for grades K-12 and helps aid our youth with work readiness and opens their mind to new potential for jobs that they could do within our community. I was fortunate enough to represent KONE Spares and spend 6 weeks in Mrs. Still’s first-grade classroom at Ridgewood Elementary in East Moline.
Our focus this year with my class was “Our Families”. We discussed similarities and differences within the families, categorized wants and needs, and described the roles that their family members played. We took time to discuss what being an entrepreneur was and how this impacted our community. The class also identified goods and services from our favorite local businesses and how those businesses fulfill our wants and needs. My most favorite part of this session was helping them create their very own birthday cake business. This allowed the kids to partner with each other, think as entrepreneurs, and apply the skills they had learned during our session to satisfy a need in their community. They really embraced it and were excited to share their business names, selling price of their goods, and what their specialty was going to be for their business.
Although the students were sad to see me go, I told them that I was excited to come back next school year and continue to help them learn. I encourage anyone else that would be interested in volunteering for Junior Achievement to reach out to myself or to visit their website at www.ja.org.
