Stannah Celebrate 150 years in Business

In 2017, the company will celebrate 150 years since Joseph Stannah started the business in Bankside, London, making cranes and hoists to move goods around the bustling docks of the industrial revolution. Nowadays, they are the UK’s leading independent supplier of lift products supplying goods as diverse as loading systems, service lifts, platform lifts, homelifts and, of course, stairlifts.

Still a family business, it is the fifth generation that now steer the company and are proud torchbearers of the values of quality and service that Joseph articulated all those years ago.

With over 90,000 products on their service portfolio they know that their customers, both commercial and domestic, rely on them not just to provide first class products to start with, but also to ensure the timely maintenance and smooth operation of those products over the years that follow.

Their values

We are reassuringly practical.

Whether we’re talking lifts or stairlifts, our engineering heritage means we meticulously craft and develop our products to make them the very best in the market.

We work carefully too, by considering our customers’ circumstances, recommending the right products and installing everything with a minimum of fuss.

And of course, we’re members of all the trade bodies (including BHTA) and meet all codes of conduct and go above and beyond product safety requirements.

We are resolutely independent.

We’ve always had our own way of doing things. We don’t chase profits at all costs and we don’t skimp on what’s important to our customers. Instead, we do what we believe is right. We put our customers at the heart of our business. We listen to what they need. And we do whatever we can to go about our business honestly and responsibly.

We are life-enhancing.

We make life easier for people – for access, moving around and greater independence. We understand their issues and will lobby on their behalf and for things we believe in such as healthy lifestyles. We’re in the business of making life – and work – more fulfilling.

Their promise

Our four commitments are the foundation of a promise to you – a promise to be ‘always true to our word’. We make four key commitments to all our customers to make sure that every stairlift we install lives up to our engineering heritage.

We are ‘always true to our word’ and committed to:

  • Great value for money
  • Superior service
  • Best quality products
  • A company you can rely on
