About Us

Karo Manufacturing Pty Ltd was established in May 1986 when the company began to manufacture chairs and back-care products specifically for the South African health and computer-user markets. As the company grew, Karo's design engineers developed a broad range of high quality ergonomic office chairs specifically for the corporate market. Through its consistent policy of high quality, customer service and competitive pricing, Karo has become one of the leading manufacturers of ergonomic office chairs and back-care products in South Africa. In 1993, Karo began an export drive that culminated in our range of WELLBACK posture and task chairs being successfully sold in the UK.

Environmental Sustainability

Karo is committed to environmental sustainability by the adoption of a 3-phased process of Reduce, Re-use and Recycle, and we endeavour to incorporate these principles in the design and manufacture of all our products.

Quality is synonymous with the Karo philosophy of continuous improvement. To this end Karo makes use of a multifaceted approach that includes a formal quality management system, a state-of-the-art computerised production planning and control system, and finally the emphasis that Karo places on the continuous training of its employees. This integrated approach towards quality, allows Karo to confidently offer its customers an extended warranty on all its products (conditions apply - contact us for more information).


Our mission is to create an environmentally aware enterprise that benefits all stakeholders including our clients, staff, suppliers, community and shareholders.
