Karo was established in 1986 as a manufacturer of specialist ergonomic seating. Over the years we have developed a broad range of corporate business furniture. With our consistent policy of offering a quality product at a competitive price in the shortest
possible time, we have captured a significant share of the corporate office chair market in South Africa.
In 1997, we broadened our product range and entered the casino chair market. Our ranges of casino seating are now exported to gaming venues around the world.

We have clients spread across five continents. This global customer base has a positive impact on our product development as we are able to gather feedback from clients around the world. To increase our global sales and distribution of casino chairs, in 2004 we established an office and distribution center in Sydney, Australia.

Karo was founded by two engineers, and to this day we retain our emphasis on product design and innovation. Our engineering focus helps us to develop new products and components to suit your business furniture needs.
We liaise and visit our local and international partners to ensure that we include their latest components and trends in our designs. We keep abreast of new research and advances in ergonomics, and include these concepts in our product designs.

We are a manufacturer and sell directly to our customers, thereby ensuring you receive the most competitive prices.

At Karo, all our products are designed and manufactured through a joint approach between our design engineers, suppliers and, most importantly, our customers. Having gathered this information, we include current research in ergonomics, industrial physiology and market trends to ensure we have all the relevant information. Only now do we refine our design concepts and fabricate prototypes.
To ensure that we maintain our quality standards, all these processes are completed in accordance with our internationally certified ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System.
Our extended warranty and integrated approach towards manufacturing high quality products, gives you total peace of mind.

To keep us at the forefront of the market, we use cutting-edge CAD design software. With modern developments in moulded foamfabric cutting and ergonomics, we constantly design new products and components that benefit our customers. Over the years we have created many innovative products and components that have set new benchmarks in our market.

We have a highly sophisticated ERP production planning and control system. This software, together with our focus on Lean business processes, ensures that components arrive on-time to meet your due-date requirements.

Sustainability is important to us and we include it in our Strategic Planning. At Karo, we take our social responsibility seriously and strive to reduce our impact on the environment. We actively develop processes and systems to reduce, recycle and reuse packaging, components and products.
