ROVO in use at Arburg
In the hectic working day, there is little time to deal with things like adjusting the office furniture. The employees of the Arburg company therefore appreciate seating furniture that is easy to operate and blends in well with the existing office furnishings.
The Arburg company is one of the world's leading manufacturers of plastic injection moulding machines and the corresponding additional equipment. As a globally active company, Arburg is represented by its own organisations in 24 countries at 32 locations and by trading partners in more than 50 countries. With highly modern production facilities and a vertical range of manufacture of around 60 percent, all products are manufactured exclusively at the parent company in Lossburg in Baden-Württemberg. In addition to the quality of the products, customer proximity and service are of central importance to Arburg's corporate success. In the new customer centre at the headquarters in Lossburg the employees take care of providing customer-oriented services whenever they are needed. In order for the service staff to meet the high demands in terms of service readiness, it is important that they work in an environment where they feel comfortable and motivated. When furnishing the new customer centre with office swivel chairs as well as visitor and conference chairs, those responsible at Arburg therefore attached great importance to ensuring that the new office seating complied with the latest ergonomic guidelines. Furthermore, the adjustment of the chair to the individual needs of the user should be uncomplicated and easy to understand. Thirdly, the new seating furniture should be coordinated in design. After an extensive sampling phase, Arburg's organisation department decided to invest in chair models from Rovo Chair.
Around 250 office swivel chairs with and without armrests and headrests as well as stackable visitor and conference chairs were supplied for the new customer centre. The high demands of the user in terms of functionality could be met by the office swivel chairs of the Rovo XN series: they have a seat height adjustment with depth suspension, a seat tilt and seat depth adjustment, a height and depth adjustable lumbar support as well as height and width adjustable armrests. Equipping the chairs with a synchronous mechanism with a large opening angle, seat depth adjustment, seat tilt adjustment and finely adjustable body weight setting makes it possible to make very specific adjustments for each employee. The seating comfort and the high-quality cover materials of wool and leather are also well received by the staff.
In terms of design, the models also blend harmoniously into the transparent architecture of the building, not least because of the backrest frame with textile mesh covering. The polished aluminium or chrome frames go well with the chrome-plated desk frames and the open chair design harmonises well with the slim design of the office furniture. After the successful furnishing of the customer service centre in Lossburg, further chair models from Rovo Chair are to be used in the future in Arburg's various international branches.
