Calling all Engineers!
‘Acquire the habit of doing everything well’ – one of Joseph Stannah’s Rules of Life, just as important in our business today as it was when our founder wrote it back in the 1800s. Joseph was an exceptional engineer who turned his hand to everything from hoists and cranes to stuffing boxes for locomotives and lifts for cars. That passion for engineering, for finding solutions, has pervaded the company ever since delivering innovations such as our midilifts and stairlifts.
