Insurance giant takes delivery of 760 new chairs

Woman sitting in RH Logic 400 ChairStaff at the UK offices of XL Insurance are now sitting pretty thanks to the company’s decision to provide them all with new ergonomic chairs.

The company, located in the City of London, has bought more than 760 RH Logic 400 chairs to replace its previous standard seating.

The huge order followed an extensive trial during which we provided individuals at the Gracechurch Street offices with several different chairs and gave them training in how to get maximum benefit from them.

The RH Logic 400 that was finally chosen had been one of the main chairs that Posturite had supplied to the company on an ad-hoc basis over the previous 18 months along with various ergonomic accessories.

Delivery of the new chairs took place over two weekends. The existing chairs were removed on the Friday evening and at 7.30 the next morning seven of our staff began the task of carrying the chairs from the lorry to individual workstations – a process that took more than five hours on each day.

Posturite staff were then on site again on the Monday morning to provide set-up advice and ensure that all the staff were happy with their new chairs.

London & South East Sales Manager Jamie Hall and Matt O’Sullivan, Key Account Manager for the City and East London, led the operation to get all the chairs delivered and installed.

Matt said: “Everything went very smoothly we knew professionalism and attention to detail would be important to give XL trust and confidence in our ability to deliver what we had promised. As a result we received excellent feedback from XL throughout the process.”

Jamie Hall added: “We were naturally delighted when XL told us that they would like to work with us to carry out their chair replacement programme. It underlines our own belief that great product and great service are a winning combination.”

Melanie Rutland, Office Service Supervisor of XL Services UK Ltd, said: “We’re really happy with how well the chair replacement project was carried out. Working with Posturite has been a pleasure due to their professionalism and enthusiasm throughout each stage of the project. Our colleagues have been pleased with their new chairs and we think it’s a very positive investment.”
