2002 | Schukra Manufacturing | Canada 6 min read
Schukra Manufacturing of Canada has been nominated for its improved back support for chairs. The enhancement has been made possible by changing to ultra high strength steel, combined with a radical redesign.
Previous designs have involved joining together a large number of parts, which have now been replaced by a single part. This has removed the need for joining and has resulted in a significant weight reduction and a twentyfold increase in productivity. Safety and function enhancements have also been made.
