Not to be confused with Rheinstahl, a company which acquired R. Stahl's elevator business in 1970.
Stahl Aufzug (or simply known as STAHL) was the elevator division of R. Stahl AG which, in the past, produced elevators as well as electric hoists. The division had defunct in 1970, and today Stahl makes explosion protection-related products.
Stahl was founded on August 1, 1876 by Rafael Stahl (1845-1899) in Stuttgart. The company initially produced circular knitting machines and other products for textile industry. In the early 1893, the company expanded its business to include electric elevators and cranes, and in 1897 it produced their first electric elevators. They made a paternoster in 1908 and their first paternoster was installed in the Graf-Eberharf Building in Stuttgart. In 1956, they manufactured Europe's fastest elevators for the Messeturm (trade fair tower) in Hannover.
In 1965, R. Stahl merged A. Zaiser, a Stuttgart elevator company that was founded in 1879 by Louis Adolf Zaiser. In 1967, they supplied elevators for the Ostankino Tower in Moscow, Russia. At 540 meters high, it was the tallest tower in the world when it was completed. R. Stahl later took over Aufzugsbau Stahl-Zaiser (Stuttgart) and Eggers-Kehrhahn (Hamburg) in 1969.
