Karo was founded in South Africa in May 1986 as a manufacturer of specialist ergonomic seating. Since then, Karo has developed many innovative chairs, including quality gaming stools.
“We believe that everyone has the right to sit on a comfortable chair, and it is our purpose to provide this”.
Quality gaming stools by Karo
Our rapid growth in the gaming stool industry began when our management team saw an opportunity in this market. In the 1990’s casinos were legalised in South Africa which resulted in a huge demand for quality gaming stools. In 1997 Karo secured the chair order for the first large casino in South Africa.
We continually strive to develop a more comfortable and durable seat. Nowhere is this more important than in the 24/7 gaming environment. Because of this approach, we have become a leading manufacturer of casino chairs.
Global customer base
Due to our philosophy, experience, 7-year warranty and commitment to ISO 9001:2015, we have sold our products around the world.
We offer many options and finishes thereby allowing our customers to modify our products to suit their specific gaming environment.
