TEK GROUP consists of three businesses – TEK Seating, TEK Military Seating and SitSmart - which have an unrivalled reputation for quality and service.
TEK Military Seating brings together the groups vast portfolio of tried and tested seat components with in-house seat design and manufacture offering defence customers the highest levels of safety and protection. The creation of the ProTEK® brand of military seating has introduced new innovations, modularity and new technologies to the market place, with ProTEK® now recognised as a global market leader valued for its quality, robustness and cost effectiveness.
The range includes Driver, Commander, Gunners, Turret, Loaders, Air Sentry and Crew seating designed for both legacy and new build fleets. Core products include the ProTEK® DC (Driver/Commander) and Crew seats which feature our specially designed and manufactured seat frames, to which modules can be fitted such harness seat belts, head guards, stowage units and blast protection. Seat safety levels have been independently tested and conform to either M1 or M2 standards. Blast Protection seats conform to Stanag 4569 AEP55 standards and, again, have been independently tested.
Innovation remains one of our constant aspirations, which includes weight reduction without loss of function, integration of new functions, such as our stretcher system which can also conform to Stanag 4569 AEP55 standards. Our newly developed ProTEK® SV foam inserts, an industry first, has revolutionised blast protection on vehicles of over 10 tonnes, by introducing a seat which offers high levels of protection without the need for the seat to stroke, and at a much lower cost. We also offer a vibration reduction version which can reduce whole body vibration exposure by up to 60% in tracked vehicles.
The move to a new purpose-built production facility in Rearsby, near Leicester, at the end of 2015 has enabled us to greatly increase production volumes and put in place a dedicated design and development centre to support our growth and maintain our ambition to constantly innovate and improve our products, making us the supplier of choice for our customers.
Consistent quality is the aspiration of many businesses, the introduction of ISO 9001 some three years ago has been augmented by our complementary in-house production quality system, designed to target zero defects - today our quality is seen as the bench mark within our industry.
TEK Seating was formed overt 40 years ago, mainly as an independent distributor for major vehicle seating companies for the OEM and aftermarket within Europe. It supports the work vehicle sector which includes: Truck, Bus & Coach, Agricultural, Construction, Marine and Industrial sectors, whilst its core product remains suspension driver seating.
SitSmart, our office chair, furniture and ergonomic accessories business, offers quality ergonomic chairs for the work place and home office. It supplies such places as 24/7 control rooms, signal boxes, surveillance areas, schools, colleges, the NHS and the MOD. We are also proud to supply ergonomic chair solutions to military personnel who have lost limbs in the service of their country.
The TEK Group is privately owned by Paul Fleming, our CEO, who has grown the business significantly since taking it over from his father 28 years ago. Today several members of the family support the business in key positions, along with many members of the team who have been instrumental in its growth and success.
Some of our core values include offering a professional service, quality, innovation and a passion for our businesses - by being good at what we do we continue to grow, increasing our market share.
