Kleemann is a Greek multinational elevator company founded in 1983. Based on the know-how and license of KLEEMANN HUBTECHNIK GmbH, nowadays it operates both in the manufacturing and the trading of elevators, mostly for third-party elevator installation and maintenance companies (similar practice to Spanish Orona). The head office is based in Kilkis, Northern Greece, with offices and subsidiaries in 10 territories serving more than 90 countries worldwide.
Its marketing slogan is Your 1st Choice in Lifts.
Its main target markets are its domestic (Greece) and various developing countries, in which investors and building owners didn't have enough money to buy elevators from major manufacturers, instead prefering products of such companies as Kleemann. It operates in major and developped markets as well, for example opening its self-owned sales and distribution subsidiary in UK in 2012. Also, company's direction appeared in various major media outlets, such as BBC and CNBC, especially to promote its international expansion.
Kleemann was established in 1983 as Kleemann Hellas SA after a contract for transfer of know-how from the German-based Kleemann Hubtechnik GmbH. In 2001, Kleemann had a joint venture with Fermator S.A. as means of Fermator's production expansion to Greece. In 2002, the company began manufacturing new elevator cabs and their own machine roomless elevators.
