Company founder Albert Stoll I already emphasised sustainability. Back then he built his factory opposite Koblenz railway station in Switzerland and to this day many raw materials still arrive by train. Since the 1980s already the Swiss seating furniture specialist Stoll Giroflex AG has focused consistently on using and recycling low-emission materials, so that in 1992 it succeeded in bringing to market the first nearly one hundred per cent recyclable chair series, the giroflex 32/33.
With giroflex 656 the globally operating company has now once again managed to design a complete range of chairs that meets both the expectations of today's customers and the requirements of environmental protection. This series, consisting of office swivel, conference and visitor’s chair, fully conforms with the "Cradle to Cradle" principle.
In 2012, also the G353 reiceived a Cradle to Cradle Silver certification. As for the G656 the certificate is only valid for several product variations and not for the entire product series. For the G656 the certificate is valid for the Giroflex G656 Swivel, G656 Visitor and G656 Conference Chair. The certification of the G353 includes the Giroflex G353 with the black plastic 5-arm base (not aluminum), and only if sold with the Flora style upholstery fabric OR the shrink/mesh Runner-mesh G490 Backrest 3D spacer fabric.
Pollutant-free materials were used, which at the end of their product life cycle return to the biological and technical materials cycle and become what they once were again. In addition, this series is so designed that the product life can be extended further because all parts can be replaced several times.
The unique vertical integration at the Koblenz production site permits direct control and constant improvement of the products. Under the quality label "Swiss Made" Stoll Giroflex AG understands the sustainable alignment of all production processes in Switzerland, making a valuable contribution to the ecology and to quality.
Stoll Giroflex AG has been ISO 9001 certified since 1993 and ISO 14001 certified since 2003. In October 2010 it received the "Cradle to Cradle" certificate "Silver" for its outstanding giroflex 656 chair series.
