Formation & Establishment

Dane was formed in 1968 by George Hall and John Hannam, specialising in the design, fabrication and installation of both aluminium glazing systems and mild steel staircases and balustrading. Aluminium glazing systems only started to become commercially available in the U.K. during the nineteen sixties, making Dane one of the first fabrication businesses of our type in the country. The development of these systems has evolved very substantially over the past fifty years to meet the demands of modern architecture and building standards, Dane have proactively embraced this evolutionary process, growing our business capacity and knowledge base to successfully deliver numerous prestigious high value projects.

From humble beginnings, Dane have developed into one of the foremost Facade and Architectural Metalwork Contractors in the U.K. Current annual turnover stands at £30m with contract values ranging between £2m to £12m for Facades and £250k to £3m for Metalwork. The business remains privately owned by the founding family and true to it’s core values of quality and integrity.
