Like other great American companies, Neutral Posture started out of a garage. It was there that the mother daughter team of Jaye Congleton and Rebecca Boenigk first began manufacturing Dr. Jerome Congleton’s concept for the Neutral Posture® Chair.
From these humble beginnings Neutral Posture has grown into the largest international woman owned small business (WOSB) company providing a complete line of worker centric office furniture and accessories made in the U.S.A. Which features numerous award-winning products.
