NEW ALBANY, Ohio, April 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Commercial Vehicle Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: CVGI) today announced it will unveil a new Compact Seat at CEMAT 2011 to be held May 2 – 6 in Hannover, Germany.
The Compact Seat represents modern technology at its best. Engineered to give maximum comfort with a sleek appeal, its unique styling will improve operator comfort and enhance vehicle aesthetics, especially on newly launched equipment. Designed to be easily fitted to a wide range of equipment, the Compact Seat's side rails are standardized to those fixing centers most commonly used by the major forklift Original Equipment Manufacturers for easy, low-cost installations, making it an excellent choice for enhancing existing vehicle ranges.
The Compact Seat has an integrated design with the option of an air or mechanical suspension system and is strong and durable, as it accommodates drivers up to 140kg (309 lbs.) for the mechanical seat and 150kg (331 lbs.) for the air seat. It also minimizes vibrations that affect drivers of industrial and construction machines. The Compact Seat has been tested and certified to meet the ISO 7096 seat performance standards for construction vehicles in categories EM6, EM7, EM8, EM9, and IT1 and IT2 for Forklifts.
The Compact Seat will be marketed and produced under CVG's KAB Seating product brand, which is recognized worldwide for its design and construction of highly-engineered suspension and other seating systems for construction and industrial vehicles.
W. Gordon Boyd, President of Seating Systems for Commercial Vehicle Group stated, "CVG's new Compact Seat is an example of our research and development capabilities and our ability to understand user needs and bring new, high-value products to market. This seat is designed to provide operators with maximum value in terms of comfort, reliability, safety and aesthetics. The introduction of the Compact Seat is further evidence of the Company's commitment to our existing strategy to expand our product offerings and geographic reach on a global basis."
