Stannah celebrate 150th anniversary at ScotlandWorks

Stannah in Scotland, located in Glasgow, looks after Scotland’s portion of the company’s UK-wide service portfolio of 91,000 lift products from all manufacturers. In recent years Stannah has completed major lift installations for Glasgow Central Station, Edinburgh Waverley and Edinburgh Haymarket Stations and look after hundreds of commercial and domestic lifts across Scotland.

Stannah is an independent, British, family-owned engineering company celebrating its 150th anniversary. In this special year they are exhibiting at ScotlandWorks in the SECC Glasgow, on the 3rd and 4th of May 2017, and looking forward to meeting Scotland's facilities professionals.

Established in 1867 by Joseph Stannah, the company first made its name making hoists and cranes for the London dockyards. During WW2, the Stannah factory was destroyed. This completely halted all operations and with no workforce, drawings or components available to him, Leslie Stannah rebuilt the business from scratch, using just his reputable family name. In the 60s Brian and Alan Stannah began to build the household name it is today, introducing passenger lifts, service lifts and, in 1975, the well-known Stannah stairlift.

Having weathered social change, multiple recessions and two world wars, Stannah’s portfolio now includes stairlifts, homelifts, platform and passenger lifts, service and goods lifts, escalators, moving walkways, loading systems and maintenance for all lift products across all manufacturers.
