ergoCentric Seating Systems, an ergonomic seating manufacturer, has been selected by the Province of Ontario as its sole vendor of record (VOR) for office and specialty seating. Before being awarded the contract, the company had to pass a pre-qualification process to ensure it met or exceeded the requirements of the Province. ergoCentric has now been pre-qualified to supply task seating to all Ontario government ministries and agencies for the next three years.
“It is very gratifying to have our mass customization, build-to-order ergonomic seating system — a process that is unique in the office seating manufacturing industry — chosen by the Ontario government for all their seating needs,” said Terry Cassaday, company owner, in a press release. “We view the awarding of this contract as the Ontario government’s recognition that strategic procurement processes should not only deliver value to taxpayers, but also encourage innovation through the purchase of best-in-class products from local SMEs.”
ergoCentric was awarded the contract with the province due to its ability to provide exceptional value for money; innovative technologies to meet and exceed the province’s accessibility and ergonomic requirements; and innovative solutions to exceed the province’s requirements for customized products and product customizations.
Currently, the company not only provides ergonomic seating solutions for the public sector, but also for healthcare (through its subsidiary healtHcentric), the financial sector, telecommunications and higher education.
