About Stannah

Why Choose Stannah

Stannah is a British family company. We have been making products to move people and goods since 1867. We are proud of our engineering heritage, of the fact that we are still a family run business five generations on and of the strong values and ethics that guide us.

Our name is on every product we sell so it is especially important to us that all of our customers are happy with the service we provide. We therefore make four key commitments to our customers:

  • To delivering the best quality products
  • To give you, our customers, superior service
  • To provide good value for money
  • To be the company you can rely on

These commitments are the foundation of our promise to you – our promise to be ‘always true to our word’.

We supply, install and maintain passenger lifts, platform lifts (vertical and inclined), service lifts (dumbwaiters), goods lifts, escalators and moving walkways. In addition to our standard product range we provide our customers with bespoke solutions for challenging projects.

Manufacture
Many of our lift products are manufactured by us in the UK and have been for almost 150 years. This means we can meet tight delivery deadlines and supply parts whenever needed.

Our services include the removal and replacement of old lift and escalator equipment or the refurbishment of existing equipment to improve performance and meet the latest lift regulations and standards.
