R. Stahl is a German company which manufactured explosion protection-related products and also elevators as well as electric hoists in the past.

History

R. Stahl was founded on August 1, 1876 by Rafael Stahl (1845-1899) in Stuttgart. In the early 1893, the company 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.

Their elevator manufacturing division was separated from the company and was sold to Rheinstahl in 1970. Finally in 1976, R. Stahl Aufzüge GmbH was renamed to Thyssen Aufzüge GmbH.
