A Little History

We were founded in 1977 by John Alfred Penistone who by chance became the owner of a seating company and took a leap from his electrical and mechanical engineering background to manufacturing chairs. We are now second generation owned and run and although we outgrew our original premises a long time ago, we are still based in Rotherham. Whilst we manufacture a little differently now, we still commit to the same core values, investing in our workforce, producing everything in house, sourcing materials locally and placing importance on quality and customer satisfaction.

Made in the UK

We are the only UK seating manufacturer to not only source up to 70% of our raw materials locally, but also manufacture everything at our head office in Rotherham, South Yorkshire. Keeping everything under one roof gives us complete control, from initial concept and design to installation and project handover. You can be safe in the knowledge that your product is in experienced hands.

Attention to Detail

Within all our ranges there is the flexibility to customise your seating to make it the perfect fit and completely unique. With over 40 years’ experience and thousands of successful projects to draw from we have a depth of knowledge that is the envy of our industry, just take a look at our case studies.

Ongoing Support

Whilst our seating is designed to require minimal maintenance, our service team are always on hand for parts, servicing or to answer questions. We offer phone and email troubleshooting, servicing contracts and emergency call out support, ensuring you get the assistance you need.

Design and Manufacture

To maintain the highest quality and accuracy, we continually invest in the latest technology and have a host of CNC machines and robotic welders at our disposal, we can design and manufacture standard or customized high quality seating solutions that meets your exacting requirements.
