About Stannah

For almost 150 years Stannah has remained a resolutely independent British business. By remaining true to our family values and taking care to look after our people and our customers we have been quietly successful, expanding to have operating companies across the UK and all over the world.

At the heart of this work is a strong but simple promise that defines our position within our industry, to be ‘always true to our word’. This reflects the way we go about business – with care, fairness and practicality – so that we can provide life and work enhancing products and services to our customers.

Although Stannah is world-renowned for stairlifts, we are a single organisation with many specialities: passenger and platform lifts, goods and service lifts, stairlifts, escalators, moving walkways, bespoke and custom-made lifts and related lift services.

Our nationwide network of 11 service branches delivers local lift services, for all types of lift products from all manufacturers, right across the UK. We also manage large lift portfolios for some of the UK’s best known brands, including over a thousand lifts for Network Rail.

Our lift services include removals, refurbishment & modernisation and new bespoke products installed to clients' specifications.

Why choose Stannah

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