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”.
Our rapid growth in the gaming stool industry began when we saw an opportunity in this market. In the late 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. Our ISO 9001:2015 certification emphasizes our continual focus on improving quality.
Using cutting-edge technology, 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.
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.

At Karo, all our products are designed and manufactured through a joint approach between our design engineers, suppliers and – most importantly – our customers. All prototypes are refined in accordance with market trends.
Karo was founded by two engineers in 1986, and to this day we still retain our focus on designing smarter products. For example, our exclusive taper-lock design allows our stools to be easily converted from one height to another at a fraction of the cost of a new stool. Using cutting-edge design software together with developments in moulded foam, fabric cutting and ergonomics, we continue to develop products that keep us at the forefront of the market.
Karo is a specialist manufacturer of quality gaming stools. We have become a well-respected name in casino seating. We are proudly associated with some of the biggest clubs and casinos around the world.
Our products can be found in venues located in Europe, Asia, Russia, Africa, South America, New Zealand and Australia.
Expansion Into Australasia
To capture a greater share of the global casino seating market, in mid-2004 we opened a permanent office in Sydney, Australia. Because we have a local office, we have become a leading supplier of quality gaming stools in the Asia-Pacific region.
