- Week 2
Stannah is a world-leader in lifting products supplying stairlifts, passenger lifts, escalators and moving walkways, vertical platform lifts, goods and service lifts. It is one of Britain’s leading engineering companies and remains an independent, family owned and run firm. The company’s experience of the lift industry is unsurpassed, originating in cargo lifts in the 1860s. In 1975, Stannah designed the first affordable, quick-to-install and easy-to-use stairlift and has since sold over 600,000 stairlifts worldwide.
Stannah is run today by fourth generation joint chairmen Alan and Brian Stannah, who launched the revolutionary Microlift and Maxilift in the 1960s and the Stannah stairlift in the 1970s. Today they are supported by the fifth generation of the family – Jon, Patrick, Alastair, Nick and Helen – who are proud torchbearers for Stannah’s long-held family spirit and traditions.
Stannah now operates in more than 40 countries and has 12 subsidiaries overseas in countries including Holland, Italy and America.
