Concept Seating


Overbuilt to be over-safe, we combine ergonomics, comfort and durability to change the way people sit... 24/7.

Concept Seating serves industries that need chairs for dispatch and call centers, heavy duty usage, big and tall seating, monitoring stations, and other occupations requiring long sedentary periods.

Concept Seating remains committed to providing sophisticated seating with unparalleled durability while addressing the need that sparked the original idea: create seating that increases employee morale and productivity while decreasing time away from the job.

Thank you to our loyal customers

As of January 15th, 2019, the Retail Division of Laacke & Joys Company is permanently closed, including:

  • Laacke & Joys Outdoors Store (W Bluemound Road)
  • Hall Saddlery (Sussex)

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for many years of patronage at all our previous locations of Hall Saddlery and Laacke & Joys Outdoors stores.

Although we're sad about closing the proverbial book on our Retail Division, we're also very excited about the future of our two Manufacturing Divisions, both of which are growing and thriving each year!
