Trône Seating from Zaltbommel has grown strongly. Four years after its start and the introduction of the first Trône chairs in 2018, hundreds of forklift drivers are already sitting on a really good forklift chair. At the LogiMAT trade fair in Stuttgart, they explain how that came about.
The LogiMAT Stuttgart trade fair took place from May 31 to June 2 and attracted thousands of visitors from North-West Europe and beyond. Trône Seating was also very busy at the booth. “We have a unique seat in terms of adjustment options and that appeals to both large and small companies,” said Sarah van Seumeren of Trône Seating during LogiMAT. “Everything is electrically adjustable, we have a memory module if you share the same seat with several drivers, and recently also a CE-approved three-point belt for the High-Back version.”
Since the family business started up in 2018, things have gone fast. By now, hundreds of drivers are already driving around on a really good forklift seat that is precisely adjustable to the person. “Not only horizontally in relation to the steering wheel and with a tiltable backrest, but also by the seat depth and the inclination of the seat,” explains Sarah. “The combination of the retractable seat and the tilt adjustment means that as a driver you don’t sit down, but you are ‘put’ in the seat. Your hips, upper legs and lower back, everything is optimally supported.”
Following the introduction in 2018 of the Trône Low-Back chair with extendable backrest, the High-Back version is now also available which offers even more support. This chair is ideally suited for the three-point belt that was recently added to the range. The new belt keeps the driver even better in place in the event of an emergency and is easier to use than the standard two-point belt. “The system has two automatic belt rollers so you can close and open the belt very easily,” demonstrates Sarah. “The buckle can be adjusted to any height and with that everything works very smoothly and pleasantly.”
