Injecting Unseen Quality into Every Part
Over 75% of all plastic parts comprising our entire chair line are constructed in-house by 9to5 Seating’s plastic injection molding department. This affords total control of the process and quality of raw materials instilled in every part thereby eliminating the need to verify vendor quality. Our exclusive use of virgin material for our 5 star nylon bases help to maintain their structural integrity. Conversely, a base made of inferior regrind material will appear outwardly to be the same. The difference is realized only after long term application by the end user. A base made of virgin material will consistently bear more weight, while bases made from regrind material may not perform properly as promised, thereby possibly causing serious injury.
Stamping Our Name on Every Chair
A metal stamping department, featuring progressive dies with automatic feeding equipment, produces many of the seat controls and other metal components on our chairs. These state of the art progressive machines work in rapid succession, thus increasing production and decreasing cost.
Designing for Tomorrow's Office Environment
A full CAD/CAM engineering and design department facilitates complete in-house, new product development via the latest technology in computer modeling and tool design. R & D and design are accomplished by our team of skilled engineers who cumulatively claim more than 50 years of industry experience.
A modernized machine shop, highlighted by computer-controlled CNC mills, lathes, EDM machines and other equipment provide 9to5 Seating with the advantage of in-house tool and dye design and fabrication, thus introducing new products to the marketplace in a shortened time frame.
Shaping the Right Chair for the Right Fit
An all-inclusive plywood manufacturing department equipped with high frequency generators, hydraulic presses and computer-controlled CNC routers afford precision-engineered plywood parts as well as customized bending and shaping of wood veneers and offer further proof of our quality from within pledge. Our computer-controlled CNC routing system assures perfectly symmetrical parts and precise hole positioning time after time, cut after cut, and reflects more proof of the 9to5 Seating quality statement.
