Kone has acquired Reliant Elevator Co., the largest independent elevator service company in Oregon, the company announced Tuesday.
The elevator and escalator manufacturer said the acquisition strengthens its position as one of the leading elevator and escalator companies in the Portland metro area and throughout Oregon.
Reliant Elevator Co. focuses on elevator maintenance, repairs and modernization. It has 1,400 elevators in its maintenance base and currently employs 18 people.
