In 1989 the mother/daughter team of Jaye Congleton and Rebecca Congleton Boenigk recognized an opportunity to manufacture and distribute Dr. Jerome Congleton’s concept for the Neutral Posture chair. Congleton’s ground-breaking research on a seating system that would support the neutral body posture, discovered by NASA, was the cumulative result of both a distinguished U.S. Air Force career (213 Combat Missions) and a subsequent career in Industrial Engineering and Safety. With his daughter, Rebecca, serving as his research assistant, Congleton developed the seating system of pressure-reducing contours and custom-fitting adjustments that would serve as the basis for the Neutral Posture seating design concept.
Years later, working from their garage, Rebecca and Jaye were able to raise enough working capital to start Neutral Posture, Inc. Surviving by hard work and word-of-mouth advertising; they instituted a generous policy of providing demonstration models to any customer – a philosophy that still exists today. Neutral Posture is now an international company with numerous award-winning patented products and the personnel to match. With facilities in both Texas and Ontario, Canada, Neutral Posture has become a highly imitated and respected leader in adjustable office and industrial seating products of all kinds. As the only certified Women’s Business Enterprise in seating, Neutral Posture has rewritten the rules of quality, customer service and value with the most exceptional product offering in the furniture industry. From ergonomic niche products to state-of-the-art mid-market products, Neutral Posture is the new corporate seating standard for ergonomic-conscious employers and organizations throughout North America.
From the state-of-the-art Neutral Posture® series to the line of workplace accessories, Neutral Posture’s products are based on the concept of the neutral body posture. This natural, stress free position is the body’s preferred posture, similar to the free floating posture experienced when totally relaxed in a swimming pool, or the posture typically associated with astronauts floating in space. Neutral Posture products were developed to help users emulate the body’s preferred position while they work, because it is in this posture that the body achieves equidistant spacing of the vertebrae and an ideal balance in the muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Proudly made in the U.S.A., Neutral Posture is committed to supporting and forming relationships with diverse businesses. Known for innovation and forward thinking, Neutral Posture has emerged as a top diversity supplier of seating for the U.S. Government and Fortune 500 companies worldwide. As a Woman Owned Office Furniture Manufacturer, Neutral Posture has a packaged office contract that includes many great manufacturing partners. Neutral Posture is also willing to team with other manufacturers to help support strong GSA Dealers and meet the needs of their customers.
