About us

ABOUT SHAPE POSTURE SEATING

Quite simply Shape provides workstation assessments and supplies a range of posture seating and other equipment designed to overcome problems such as back pain.

GET MORE THAN YOU EXPECT

Whether you ask us to just provide you with a chair or carry out a full workplace assessment, we will always attempt to give you a level of advice and service that is quite unique in our industry.

Our primary aim is to understand your requirements, interpret them correctly and to leave you with the feeling that you have made the right choice by using Shape Posture Seating. Our clients tell us we are succeeding.

OUR PERSONAL SERVICE

Shape Posture Seating is a family owned and run business. We all love our work, a factor that comes across to everyone we speak to during a working day. We believe that by staying comparatively small as a company we are able to relate to our customers and build relationships that we feel would be impossible in a large, impersonal organisation.

MORE THAN JUST A CHAIR

Shape Posture Seating won’t simply sell you a chair. We will look at how you will be using that chair and how this will relate to your working environment. We will instruct you on how to get the maximum benefit and, if you want us to, we will set the chair up on site and advise you on whether your equipment is in the right position to help minimise any adverse effects on your body.

ACCESS TO WORK SCHEME

Shape posture Seating have been supplying specialist equipment through the Access to Work Scheme for over 20 years, and continue to provide an exceptional level of service, which is why we are used time and time again. We work closely with assessors to ensure that they are happy with the chairs they recommend, and often provide advice on new and existing products - our specialist knowledge has been invaluable on many occasions.

40 YEARS IN BUSINESS

Shape was founded in 1967 and one of the original founders, Brian Edwards, still retains an active interest in the development of the company. This ensures that those perennial essentials of customer service, reliable deliveries, kept promises and personal attention are combined with expertise provided by all members of Shape Posture Seating.

20 YEARS AGO

Some 20 years ago we were one of the first companies in the UK to become interested in developing the idea of posture seating when, coming from a background of general office furniture, we introduced the quite revolutionary idea of ‘kneeling chairs’ from Stokke in Norway, to the north of England. The success of this new concept encouraged us to concentrate our skills and knowledge in the workings of ‘ergonomics’ (the relationship between people and their workplace) and in 1997 we changed our trading name to Shape Posture Seating to reflect this new focus.
