Starlift, also known as Starlift Voorburg, was a Dutch elevator manufacturer from Voorburg, Netherlands. The company was founded in 1927 and acquired by Kone in 1989. During the first years since the acquisition, the company was known as KONE Starlift from 1992 until 1999 when it was renamed into Kone. Starlift also had production sites in Drachten and Thorn.
Starlift was founded in 1927 in Voorburg.
In 1989, Kone sold the shares of Starlift as a mean of entering the Dutch elevator market. In 1992, the Kone office in Gorinchem was merged with Starlift's production facility and continued to operate under the name KONE Starlift. Subsequently, a number of regional offices were established throughout the country. In 1996, Kone Starlift moved to a new factory building in Leidschendam. In 1999, the company was renamed into KONE BV.
