Steelcase today launches a year-long celebration of its 100th anniversary, and its reinvention as a globally integrated enterprise, focused on the future of work. Known as the long-time leader of the office furniture industry, the company has thrived for a century not only because of its products and manufacturing strength, but because of its core commitment to people at work and its human-centered approach to innovation and design.
“From the start, our company has been about more than furniture,” said James Hackett, CEO of Steelcase Inc. “We have always focused on people and what people can do. Companies don’t survive for a century – ideas do. So as we turn 100 years old we want to take this opportunity to look out into the future and see all the things that make us optimistic. We see a future full of limitless possibilities.”
