TriviaEdit

  • Orenstein & Koppel had a partnership with the UK-based Keighley Lifts to made few elevators in the United Kingdom. Their elevators were branded as "Keighley O&K". One of their installations was located in Tesco in High Wycombe, but they have been modernized by Stannah Lifts.
  • According to "hkelev.com", some of their escalators handrails are wider than other companies[10].
  • In Australia, O&K escalators were distributed by Elevators Pty. Ltd. (EPL KONE) and some of their late 1980s escalators were often branded as "O&K EPL-KONE".
