The History of Our Staircase Company
In 2009, two industry-leading staircase manufacturers joined forces to create one of North America’s largest stair and handrail companies. Each bringing decades of experience and skill in design and construction, Artistic Stairs and Southern Staircase formed not only one of the largest stair companies, but the most talented and capable. With divisions from coast to coast in the United States, we are uniquely positioned to deliver the highest quality residential and commercial staircases across the continent.
Since its inception over 35+ years ago, Artistic Stairs has earned an excellent reputation for high quality craftsmanship and skill. In 1979, Bill Langen founded the staircase company and manufacturer in Calgary, Alberta. The company expanded northward to Edmonton, then in the early 1980s, entered the United States market through operations in Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona.
Artistic Stairs’ continued dedication to quality has not gone unnoticed. The staircase manufacturer has received numerous accolades including both Consumers Choice and Builders Choice Awards.
In 1983 Dick Hanson and Billy Martin founded Southern Staircase in Atlanta, Georgia. The stair builder grew organically throughout the southeastern United States and has established a strong national presence with additional locations throughout the Carolina’s and in Washington, DC.
Over the past 30+ years, Southern Staircase has also built an outstanding reputation as a top quality, service-driven staircase manufacturer. Recognized for innovation in design, Southern Staircase is proud to serve as a trusted partner to many commercial and residential builders.
