The Sebel story began in 1951 with the production of Mobo toys and a new furniture range based around the innovative Stak-a-Bye chair. In the late 1960s the decision was made to drop the toy side of the business and concentrate entirely on the furniture range which had taken the market by storm.
Sebel went on to introduce many innovations, from being the first to replace wooden chairs at schools with Polypropylene, to classic ergonomic designs which many decades later are still as popular as ever. Since then, and still behind each Sebel product today, is a genuine manufacturing culture which is focused on making products that have the latest ergonomics (Form), work at a practical level (Function) and are built to last (Quality). When you buy Sebel, you are investing in your customers, students or staff, ensuring they will benefit through features that have been designed and refined over many decades.
In 2011, Sebel became part of KI www.ki.com the leading furniture supplier in the USA for education, healthcare, corporate and government markets. KI has sales offices and licensed manufacturing facilities throughout the world, including now Australia, the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, India, China and other Asian countries. Unlike many competitors who have come and gone throughout our 60 year history, Sebel is still going from strength to strength.
