Money back on old Ahrend products - part of Company’s sustainability policy

Wednesday 20 May 2009

Office furniture manufacturer Ahrend is offering its customers the opportunity of trading in their old Ahrend 220 office chairs for its modern successor, the Ahrend 230. The customer will receive a substantial discount on the new chairs on top of money back for the old ones. The traded-in chairs will be refurbished and recycled to give it a new lease of life.

This campaign forms part of Ahrend’s sustainability policy, which is aimed among other things at prolonging the life of Ahrend products.

The Ahrend 220, known from the ‘letterbox’ in its backrest, is claimed to be the best selling office chair in Europe. More than a million have been sold since its launch in 1994. Henk Verkerke’s design was revolutionary at the time because this was the first chair to be produced on ecodesign principles. This means, for example, that the environmental load and recyclability of the materials used are taken into account from the initial design stage, and that efforts are made to keep energy consumption during the production process as low as possible. The ecodesigner also ensured that the product was easy to dismantle, and that it is upholstered with materials that do not place an unnecessary burden on the environment.
