Motala Hissar's previous logo.

The company was established in 1972 and initially made freight elevators before it switched to making platform lifts in the 1980s.

In 2014, Motala Hissar, in association with Kone launched the Kone ProSpace, a self supporting elevator with a pit of only 10 cm and can be installed in narrow staircases in both existing and newly built buildings. The model is a successor of Motala Hissar's MC6000 model.

In January 2020, the UK based The Platform Lift Company formed a partnership with Motala Hissar. The Platform Lift Company has been the sole distributor of Motala Hissar platform lifts in the United Kingdom.[1].

  • Motala 6000LS: Cabin lift, can also be used for existing buildings without an elevator.
  • Kone ProSpace: Self supporting machine room less elevator that can be installed in a narrow staircase, usually for existing buildings which initially didn't have an elevator. The model was launched in 2014 in association with Kone (hence it is also marketed by Kone) and it is a successor of Motala Hissar's MC6000 model due to its similar design.
