The faces behind STAS
Rien Stas, a self-employed handyman, was asked to hang works of art early in the nineties. His research into existing picture hanging systems soon led to the conclusion that he could make a better design… In 1995, Rien founded STAS picture hanging systems together with his brother André.
Rien concentrated on development and André was responsible for general management of the company. The range expanded rapidly and it was obvious that the company’s innovations in the area of picture hanging systems satisfied an unanswered need in the market as they were a resounding success from the very start! STAS innovates based on the following philosophy: a suitable solution for every application. Most of the company’s clever hanging systems are patented and STAS has won many awards with its designs. And we are not just successful in the Netherlands; we have made a name for ourselves all over the world and export to more than 50 countries! Today, with the help of its customers, STAS has grown into a substantial company. One thing is certain: we will continue to innovate in the years to come!

CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility)
STAS originated from good ideas, ambition and an enthusiastic entrepreneurial spirit. But STAS also originated from a drive to improve things. Such a drive can not be combined with business management that ignores social responsibility. Because a better world still starts with yourself.
From the very beginning of its existence, STAS considers corporate social responsibility to be of paramount importance. STAS expresses this in two ways. At product level, we invest in environmentally friendly solutions that reduce the company's ecological footprint. STAS uses two types of recycled aluminum for its products and is registered for LED certification.
In addition, people with a distance to the labor market at STAS get the opportunity to use their individual talents, contribute and to feel part of society.
