At Karo office chair manufacturers in Johannesburg, all our products are designed and manufactured through a participative approach between our expert design engineers, our suppliers, and, most importantly our customers. Once the relevant information has been gathered from all the parties, design concepts and fabricated prototypes are refined in accordance with our ISO 9001:2015 procedures, current research in ergonomics, industrial physiology and market trends

Our commitment to ISO 9001 together with our state-of-the-art ERP system and relentless employee training and development ensures that quality is synonymous with the Karo philosophy of continuous improvement. This integrated approach towards quality allows us to confidently offer customers an extended warranty on all our office operator and casino chairs.

As a result of the above approach, Karo has earned a reputation as a leading office chair supplier in South Africa, and is known for producing modern, stylish and anatomically correct products of unsurpassed quality.

We take our social responsibility seriously, striving to produce office and casino chairs in South Africa with minimal environmental impact. We actively assess our office chair manufacturing processes across the life cycle of our products, i.e. from raw material and production, to distribution, usage, recycling and ultimately the disposal of any un-used components. We understand the need to reduce, recycle and reuse packaging, components and products to create a harmonious blend between eco-efficiency, quality and modern aesthetic designs.

Fundamental to our environmental commitment and South Africa’s future sustainability are the processes and steps that we have taken, such as:

  • Integrating environmental awareness into strategic planning and developing systems to manage our environmental impact
  • Meeting all relevant environmental laws and regulations
  • Reducing waste and improving the efficiency of our resources
  • Providing a role-model for our employees and encouraging active participation in environmental awareness.


By embracing our environmental responsibilities and encouraging the active participation of all our employees, Karo aims to demonstrate our commitment to a sustainable environment to ultimately benefit our customers, employees, shareholders and the communities in which we operate.

We are committed to the advancement of the manufacturing industry in South Africa and will endeavour to not only source components and raw materials from local suppliers, but also fabricate components in-house where financially viable. We only source international components and materials when local sources do not exist, are of inferior quality, or when economic terms dictate.

We have a substantial capital investment in infrastructure, machinery, automation and IT. With a technologically advanced manufacturing plant located on 6500 sqm on the outskirts of Johannesburg, in South Africa’s main economic hub, Karo is ideally situated to have access to all major transport routes and other infrastructure within the highly developed Gauteng industrial region.

Established in May 1986, Karo Manufacturing (Pty) Ltd began to build office task chairs specifically for the South African health and computer-user markets. As the company grew, our design engineers developed a broad range of high-quality office chairs specifically for corporate markets. Through our consistent commitment of high-quality, excellent customer service and competitive pricing, we became one of the leading manufacturers of corporate office chairs in South Africa. Located on a 6500 m2 site on the outskirts of Johannesburg, our state-of-the-art manufacturing plant is ideally situated to service the entire Southern African region.


In mid-1997, Karo entered the casino gaming chair market when we secured the order for South Africa’s first casino located in northern Johannesburg. Since then, we have designed and manufactured a broad range of casino gaming chairs marketed and successfully sold under the GAMER brand-name in Europe, Asia, Russia, Southern Africa, South America, New Zealand and Australia.

In a move to capture a greater share of the global market, we expanded our base and in the latter half of 2004 opened a permanent office in Sydney. In accordance with our global expansion strategy, we have aligned ourselves with various international companies to supply gaming chairs to clubs, hotels and casinos around the globe.
