Pledge Office Chairs Ltd was established in 1970 by it's current Managing Director David Carter.

Employing just 10 personnel in a very small production area pledge set about production of swivel adjustable office chairs.

In just two years the Pledge workforce had increased to 50 and the the factory had more than doubled in size. Five years later Pledge moved to a 2200 sqm factory and invested in machinery for robotic welding, automated saw cutting and powder coat finishing. This enabled Pledge to construct every component required for its office chair products. No reliance on imported parts or subcontractors has been key to minimising lead times, maintining excellent value  and virtually eliminating product defects.

By 1987 Pledge had acquired 2 further sites over an area of 5600 sqm and now employed 120 personnel.

The current 14000 sqm site was acquired in 1991. Pledge chairs now employs 192 personnel and a has turnover in excess of £13 million.

This large space and on going investment in people and machinery has allowed Pledge to become one of the most succesful office chair manufcacturers in the UK.

Possibly the most self sufficient seating manufacturing plant in the UK:

- Fully Equipped Woodworking Section

- Integrated Computer System

- Self Contained Engineering Section

- Automated Fabric Cutting Machine

- Prototype & Design Team

The woodworking section is fully equipped to produce seating frames, wood staining and finishing. A fully integrated computer system with material sourcing, planning and product tracking, backed by active stock totalling £1.5 million. 

A self contained engineering section providing automatic tube cutting, power presses, CNC tube manipulation, robotic welding, on line pre-treatment and tool making facilities with paint powder coating plant. 

Upholstery is an essential part of any seating manufacture; Pledge OfficeChairs uses a precision automated fabric laying machine for accuracy, with quality hand sewn finishing and the option of fabric embossing.
