Antares believes in lasting relationships with partners, clients, employees, architects and designers. We believe as well in sustainable products. Currently, the Antares group is one of the largest manufacturers of office chairs in Central and Eastern Europe. In the beginning, it operated as a distributor of office chairs, but due to the favorable market situation, in 1993 the company also developed its production segment.
BIGGEST OFFICE CHAIR MANUFACTURER FROM EAST AND CENTRAL EUROPE
Everything started to go upward from this point on: between 1995 and 2001, in addition to exporting to Western European markets, the parent company established subsidiaries in Romania, Slovakia, Hungary and Bulgaria. Within a few years, the Antares subsidiaries managed to gain a significant share of the Central and Eastern European markets.
The group currently has more than 300 employees, five production plants and sales teams in seven European countries. Antares chairs are exported to thirty other European and non-European countries. Annual production exceeds 1.2 million chairs, with a total turnover of over 35 million euros. Out of these numbers, Antares Romania represents approximately 1/3 of the group, with almost 100 employees and a turnover of 10 million euros/year.
Production sites: (factories): Czech Republic (2), Hungary, Romania (2), Serbia, Bulgaria.
Sister companies in: Czech Republic (1992), Hungary (1995), Slovakia (1995), Romania (1998), Bulgaria (2001), Serbia (2008).
THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ANTARES AND THE CHAIRS
Antares is a chair specialist. Of course, we know exactly how a chair should look, and even more: we know how it should make you feel. And there is no philosophy here: a chair should make you feel at ease. To be able to stay relaxed while you work, to be able to sit comfortably if you are in a waiting room, to support you if you have to spend a lot of time sitting, in short – not to distract you from what you have to do.
Antares knows that the chair is doing well it’s job when it can go unnoticed. When you can listen to the concert without having to bend over backwards, when you can move freely while multitasking, when the hours pass without realizing it while reading a book, or when you can spend some time without annoying as you wait your turn.
WHY DO WE TAKE CHAIRS SO SERIOUSLY?
Because they have an undeniable impact on people’s mood and behavior. In fact, more and more studies reveal that the seat and work environment play a key role in attracting, motivating and retaining staff. A chair contributes to employee satisfaction at work and provides a sense of well-being.
In conclusion, it is about how aesthetics influence the work or home environment. By adapting the chairs to your needs, we can transform a cold, sterile, corporate environment into something warm and welcoming. We create a sense of privacy in a public space.
