With healthy growth into the future

Mey SYSTEMS GmbH has been an owner-managed FAMILY COMPANY for over five decades, which has specialised in the development and production of seating furniture for the industrial and workshop sector. Originating from the traditional craftsmanship of contract welding, today meychair is one of the leading manufacturers of swivel work chairs, sit stands and stools.

It is therefore a matter of course for us that most of our series have been certified by TÜV Rheinland with the GS mark and that we always follow the current DIN standard 68877 for industrial and work chairs and DIN standard 4556 for footrests.

From the idea through development to the finished model, we attach particular importance to safety and quality.

Decades of experience and outstanding expertise make the meychair brand an innovative and reliable partner.

Hardly any other manufacturer has such a wide range of SEATING FURNITURE products for industrial and workshop areas. SEATING SOLUTIONS, coordinated down to the last detail and TAILORED to the requirements of workplaces, prove the great expertis of meychair. In addition, custom-made products are also part of the portfolio, as is the construction of special solutions. Decades of experience provide a basis of expertise for the development of, for example, XXL seating solutions. The Comfort sit stands from the meychair brand, which can take loads of up to 200 kg, are market leaders.

The CUSTOMER is always in the foreground with us. In order to guarantee the best possible SERVICE, the company has always attached great importance to qualified and long-term employees. They are on hand to advise customers, find the RIGHT SEATING SOLUTION for every request and enable CUSTOM PRODUCTS according to individual specifications. SERVICE is always capitalised at meychair!

In addition, a global network of over 1,000 RETAILERS and sales partners ensures that customers around the world can enjoy the meychair brand. Despite being a GLOBAL PLAYER, Mey CHAIR SYSTEMS GmbH is deeply rooted in its HOME in Upper Franconia. The area, the regional economy and the local associations are particularly important to the family-run company in its THIRD GENERATION.

Company philosophy

Versatile, stable, strong in seating

Perfect seating solutions

Sitting relaxed, sitting upright, sitting actively. As with a garment that “fits” and thus has the ideal shape, ergonomic seating is all about the matching chair with the perfect fit.
Different requirements require different solutions.

Human being and health are the focus

The mey team’s creativity in developing its chair systems and swivel chair components is reflected in an extensive range of products. No matter whether striking in design or rather subtle, every new model is preceded by a clear vision in which the whole person and his or her health are always focussed on.

Flexible manufacturing

Flexibility runs like a thread through the entire production process at meychair. In close cooperation with the customer, this central thread becomes an elastic band: from the production start to delivery, interaction is possible at any time.

Company history

Successful family business for 50 years

Joachim Mey laid the foundation for today’s company in 1965 as a contract welder. With great commitment and a lot of joy, Mr Joachim Mey stood in the workshop almost every day into old age and never missed the opportunity to actively participate in development and construction. The most innovative solutions and plans were developed together with him. His gaze was always directed towards the future – standing still or even retirement was out of the question for him. He could always be sure of the support of his wife and colleague Helga Mey. After all, it was thanks to her talent for welding that the company was able to quickly achieve success in the beginning.
