KONE acquires RSU5 in St. Petersburg

KONE has acquired the remaining 90 percent of the St. Petersburg based elevator service company called RSU5.
Since 2006, KONE has had a holding of 10 percent in this formerly City held company, which was privatized in 1999. KONE now has a full ownership of the company.

The acquisition further strengthens KONE's position in St. Petersburg by giving KONE access to the municipal housing market, which is the largest maintenance segment in St. Petersburg. This housing segment offers significant potential for modernization and replacement.

"Since its privatization from the City of St. Petersburg, RSU5 has continuously increased sales of modernization and replacement, which remains an immediate growth opportunity for KONE," states Klaus Cawén, KONE Executive Vice President.
