1930 - 1960
Through the 30s & 40s, we worked on the country's most renowned projects: The Olympic Village in Melbourne. Continuous handrails at the Melbourne Airport, which still exist today. To the Ceremonial Staircase at Parliament House in Canberra.
In the Mid-Century we boomed, with new staff from all over Europe - whose sons and grandsons, daughters and nieces and nephews make up a large part of our wonderful family to this day. We became synonymous with landmark mid-century projects all over Victoria, by celebrated architects like Robyn Boyd, Roy Grounds and many more.
More than anything, an S&A Stair is defined by generations of dedication and refinement. We have a passion for continuous improvement and repeating processes for incremental gain, every single day. We have a passion for our craft and most importantly the people who work at S&A.
You'll see this dedication every day at our workshops around the country.
Over the Years
We were born in the industrial streets of South Yarra, Melbourne in 1920. By two excellent tradesmen - Alex Acquroff & Ted Slattery.
We survived The Great Depression without even a car, carting stairs to site by wheelbarrow. Slowly, we carved out a reputation for our quality in Melbourne's inner eastern suburbs: Malvern, Toorak, South Yarra, Brighton, Glen Waverley and more.
