Karo Manufacturing was established in South Africa in May 1986 when the company began to design and produce office chairs and speciality ergonomic seating. Over the years Karo has developed a myriad of innovative seats, from kneeling chairs, to ergonomic office chairs, to 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
Like many similarly innovative companies, Karo’s rapid growth in the gaming stool industry began when the management team saw an opportunity in this market. In the late 1990’s, the South African law on casinos and gambling changed which allowed for the development of new casinos and a corresponding demand for pokie stools. Shortly thereafter, Karo began designing high quality gaming stools which enabled them to secure the chair order for the first large casino in South Africa.
Our philosophy of continually striving to provide a more comfortable and durable seat, has resulted in Karo becoming a leading manufacturer of casino chairs.
It is this philosophy, together with our experience, our commitment to ISO 9001:2015, and our 7-year warranty, which has resulted in Karo products being sold to clubs, pubs, hotels and casinos around the globe.
With a variety of options and finishes, our broad range of products are easily customised to suit any gaming environment.
