Over the Years, Ergonomic Comfort Design, Inc. has established its name in the office furniture market by providing one of the most comfortable, high quality and functional ergonomic chairs in the industry. We also pride ourselves in our efforts of producing safer products that follow the guidelines of a cleaner and healthier in-door air quality for a better office environment.
ECD strives to use materials that are processed in an environmentally responsible manner or consist of high level of recycled material. Our vendors are committed to eliminating negative chemicals and vapors, some of which lead to health problems and low productivity. As part of our safety process, we require from our main suppliers a written certification confirming that their components are free form harmful chemicals.
Momentum Textiles offers their Terratex Fabric of recycled polyester, which is available in all or our seating products. Omission of finishes makes it possible to recycle Terratex Fabrics upon completion of their useful life span.
ECD uses manufacturing processes that are friendly and non-threatening to our environment. Materials used in the production process contain no Ozone Depleting Substances (ODSs) (chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) or hydrocloroflourcarbons (HCFCs)). Our systems are in full compliance with EPA requirements concerning Clean Air and Clean Water. We recycle scrap metal, paper and corrugated waste. We work diligently with our local power company to determine effective ways to conserve energy in our operations.
Our Chairs are shipped using reusable packaging materials such as blankets and other such materials as recyclable cardboard boxes.
ECD designs and manufactures products with long life cycles to reduce total disposals. ECD products carry a lifetime warranty (with a few exceptions) and are designed to last for well over 10 years, meaning our products limit the dispose and re-purchase cycle that causes many environmental problems.
ECD eliminated the printed owner’s manual in January of 2006. End users have the ability to log on to www.ecdonline.net and learn how to operate their new chair by watching an animated tutorial. ECD is currently working on eliminating the printed catalog by having an “online” Catalog with brochures and pricing.
ECD welcomes visitors to tour our factory and see for themselves our commitment for a cleaner environment.
