Sustainability

Summit Chairs has ISO14001 environmental management certification and is a full member of FIRA’s Furniture Industry Sustainability Programme (FISP). Specifically designed for the furniture industry, FISP requires us to meet far more stringent and wide ranging levels of accountability, over and above those set out in ISO14001. It is also important for us to ensure maximum levels of product recyclability – and, where possible, to use recycled materials in our production processes.

Made in the UK

Summit Chairs has been manufacturing commercial seating since 1977. Over the years we have built an enviable reputation for quality, workmanship and service. Everything, from the frame construction and upholstery through to assembly, is carried out by our own highly skilled UK-based work force. This enables us to continually monitor and improve processes, bringing to the market innovative new ranges that deliver on all counts: aesthetics, ergonomics, quality, function and price. As an environmentally-conscious organisation, we are also committed to maintaining zero conflict between our business and environmental principles. In fact we firmly believe that improvements in one field can help drive the other.
