About Col 1
1938 Standage & Company Limited is formed by three founders: William H Standage (the largest shareholder), Alan G Chambers and Percy Mitchell “to carry on the trades or businesses of builders.”
1954 Alan Brain buys shares in Standage & Co. which is now carrying out groundworks on behalf of London County Council.
1980 Alan Brain’s son, Mike, becomes Managing Director and transforms the business from local builder to recognised contractor in London’s public sector refurbishment market.
2008 Chris Brain, Mike’s son, takes over as Managing Director and develops the business into the private sector whilst maintaining good and recurring relationships with the public sector on which the foundations of the business were formed.
