Tom Simpson founded Summit Chairs in 1977 designing high quality chairs for the education, healthcare and office environment.  Operating for over 28 years from a factory in beautiful Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire, the team manufactured high function, high tech, high style chairs for the commercial market.

Tom’s son, David, joined the business at 18 years old, and today is the current CEO and our very own Chair Architect.  In 2012 we moved our chair family to a new 45,000 sq ft premises in Trowbridge, Wiltshire where today, every single chair is designed and lovingly handcrafted for you.

Over the years we have evolved our desk chairs to focus on wellbeing & providing the best support for your back through ergonomic design and promoting comfortable working. 

Our chairs can be found nationwide in schools, the NHS, industry & varied workplace settings, with over 1 million sold, we have no doubt you will have relaxed on a few over the years!

We know what we are talking about, Chairology is our buzz word.
