Comfort and Customer Service Clinch it for InFlex at NC State
March 19, 2013
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Founded in 1887, North Carolina State University boasts a sprawling campus that houses more than 34,00 students. When the college was looking to outfit dorms with stylish new seating, durability was a key consideration. So was doing business with someone the university could trust. They turned to a dealer whose track record spoke for itself.
Luther Associates’ Mike Luther and Interior Systems’ Eddie Rankin have worked together for 22 years. In that time, they have tackled projects all over North Carolina. And they’ve built a relationship of trust with North Carolina State.
WHAT MADE THE DIFFERENCE?
The college was looking for a chair that could offer comfort while withstanding heavy use. They needed great quality and a great price. Mike and Eddie found their solution with InFlex.
Designed for comfort and durability, the back boasts 13 degrees of flex for comfort that is uncommon in most plastic side chairs. The construction and materials that go into the InFlex mean that the chair can handle heavy use. And in a high-traffic, high use setting like a college campus, ability to withstand abuse is critical. The college put InFlex through what Mike and Eddie called “the supreme sit test” – chairs were set up in residence halls where staff members from across campus could try them. The verdict was unanimous. Everyone loved InFlex.
The price and warranty sealed the deal. Mike and Eddie knew that the quality of the products meant that they would be a good value. And they knew that SitOnIt Seating would stand behind its product. The school came through with an order for more than 2,200 chairs.
The NC State project could lead to big things for InFlex and SitOnIt Seating in higher education. As members of housing departments at other colleges see the InFlex, demand for the chair is likely to grow. And with outstanding customer service to back up outstanding products, SitOnIt Seating expects to have a promising future in higher education.
