Founded in 1991, Workrite Ergonomics is an industry leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of height-adjustable workcenters and ergonomic office accessories, including adjustable keyboard platform systems and flat panel monitor support systems.
History: Over the past 15 years, Workrite Ergonomics has developed a reputation for excellence around its highly evolved ergonomic office solutions and has attained a respected leadership position in the contract furnishings industry. This position applies not only to its sought-after products but to the company's reputation as an expert source for ergonomic trends and data.
In 2005, Workrite Ergonomics announced the results of an important study of the workplace, which focused on worker comfort and productivity in terms of specific, equipment-related preferences and requirements. The "How Long Can You Stand to Sit" study revealed that 92 percent of respondents prefer a desk or workstation that allows them to make minor adjustments in height. Further, 82 percent prefer a surface for typing or keyboarding that allows them to work at a slight angle - believing that such customized touches would eliminate the majority of their work-related pain. This study underlines Workrite Ergonomics' commitment to providing products that directly benefit the health of employees and therefore, the productivity of companies.
Workrite Ergonomics' proximity to Silicon Valley's unparalleled high-tech business environment has provided the company with an ideal setting in which to develop ergonomic products to satisfy the most progressive and demanding companies nationwide. Every product is developed with direct input from the ergonomic community and customers.
