KONE, a global leader in the elevator and escalatory industry, was awarded the title of best long-term partner by shipping group STX France in a ceremony held onboard Royal Caribbean International's Harmony of the Seas, the latest Oasis-class luxury cruise ship built by the company, and the biggest cruise liner in the world.

STX France General Manager Laurent Castaing praised KONE as a reliable partner that delivers high-quality elevators and escalators, communicates clearly, excels in project management, and has reliable installation and good cooperation on site.

"During the building of the Harmony of the Seas vessel, we never faced any issues related to the delivery or installation of KONE's equipment. We see this as a proof of their professionalism and we're extremely pleased to work with KONE," Castaing said.

KONE has been working with STX France since the mid-1990s and KONE's Marine Business has its own dedicated team at the STX shipyard in St. Nazaire, France. The Harmony of the Seas, like its sister ships the Oasis of the Seas and the Allure of the Seas, features eco-efficient KONE elevators and escalators that enable the smooth flow of both guests and crew onboard the vessel.
