Schindler’s lift

The worst name of a lift manufacturing company is owned by the good people of ANSA Elevators Ltd. It may well mean something in English, but ansa means something in Finnish too. That meaning is trap.

However, a close second has to be the company that installed the lift at The Core shopping centre in Leeds.

I mean come on, Schindler’s lift?

Finland has a lift manufacturing company, and it is a big one. They are called Kone and you have probably been up or down one of their escalators. Their name means machine in Finnish. Perhaps it is their quality products that make them successful, but it could also be because they have avoided references to being trapped, or racial persecution, in the name of their company.
