History

Orona was founded in 1964 in San Sebastián as Orona, S. Coop, which was originally a manufacturer of boiler making equipment. They started making elevators in 1967 under license from Sabiem[1], an Italian elevator company. During this time, they made elevators with design and fixtures from Sabiem and were branded as "Orona Sabiem"[2]. In the same year Orona merged with MASTRA. In 1975, they started making their own elevators under the Orona brand after their license with Sabiem expired. By 1985, Orona was the largest elevator company in Spain. In 1989, Orona started making escalators[3].

In February 2016, Orona acquired EST Ascenseurs of France and Heis 1 Group of Norway. Heis 1 Group has been a distributor of Orona in Norway for 14 years and had locations in six Norwegian cities.

Trivia

  • Orona elevators installed by third party agents or distributors are often branded by the distributor that installed them instead by Orona, regardless of location. For example, Orona elevators installed by Liftwise in the United Kingdom are branded as "Liftwise" instead.
