The National Commercial Sci-Tech Innovation-oriented Enterprise Award aims to encourage private enterprises to innovate independently, and promote the transformation of development mode and industrial acceleration. Meanwhile, private companies that perform well in technical innovation and technological promotion will be commended and rewarded.
Since its first establishment in 1992, GTChair has been developing for 30 years. And during that time, GTChair achieved its upgrade from a traditional office chair to a modern ergonomic chair. Now, GTChair becomes a technological-oriented corporation that creates novel and intelligent ergonomic chairs.
In 2007, Tan Ganrong, the chairman of GTChair, decided to develop ergonomic chairs after a long term of investigation domestically and abroad. He repeatedly altered the design in terms of shape, structure, function and force analysis, then changed the installation model over and over again. After 26 months, he successfully create the first ergonomic chair of GTChair on his own, and later updated and upgraded it constantly, therefore giving sedentary people a fresh experience of sitting.
In 2015, GTChair began to develop an intellectualized production line of ergonomic chairs. After 2 years of research and trial, discussed by the design team and professionals of the auto production line, the first international “NC assembly-inspection integrated ergonomic chair production line” was successfully developed and operated, which was based on the skills and philosophies of auto production. This achievement realized the intellectualization and technological acceleration of chair production and ensured the quality of products while shortening the production cycle, thus offering ergonomic chair production an intellectual plan.
