Hävemeyer & Sander Aufzugwerk und Maschinenfabrik (sometimes typed as Hävemeier & Sander and often known as H+S Aufzug) was a German elevator manufacturer from Hannover, Germany.

History

The company was founded in 1873 as "Maschinenfabrik Knölke, Hävemeyer & Sander" by entrepreneur Friedrich Hävemeyer along with two mechanics Louis Knölke and August Sander. At that time the company made steam engines, brick making machines, transmissions and also elevators. In 1923, Louis Knölke and August Sander died and Friedrich's son, Alfred Hävemeyer, took over the company. After many years of making elevators, the company was acquired by Kone in 1973, at time it celebrated its 100th anniversary. It became KONE Hävermeier & Sander until 1992 when the Hävemeyer & Sander name was dropped.
