About Us

Since Joseph Stannah first opened the doors for business in London back in 1867 Stannah has remained a British, family-owned business. Over 140 years later, our business is managed by Patrick and Jon Stannah, Joseph’s great grandchildren.

In 1975 Stannah added the stairlifts to the range and in 2011 produced the 500,000th, commemorated with a visit from HRH The Prince of Wales – a very proud day for all of us at Stannah.

We are members of the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA), and rigorously adhere to their trading standards approved code of conduct to act in an honest, responsible and ethical way.

In 2008, Stannah Stairlifts was the first company in the Mobility Business category to make it into the top 500 UK Superbrand list – ranking 488.  Since then our ranking has increased to 459 in 2009/10 and again to 436 in 2011.

A company that is deemed to be a Superbrand is done so because it has established the finest reputation in its field. It offers customers recognisable and significant advantages over its competitors, and is judged against three core factors: Quality, Reliability and Distinction.

It is no wonder we were so honoured to receive this accreditation.
