In 1890, master basket maker Lorenz Mayer laid the foundation for today's company with a basket goods factory. His son and subsequent generations of the Mayer family successfully continued the trade and crafts. In addition to classic basket goods, prams were also part of the range for a time, before the company specialised entirely in the production of seating furniture from the end of the 1960s.

Today, Mayer Sitzmöbel can look back on more than 130 years of company history. Around 70 long-serving and very experienced employees work at the factory based in Mannsgereuth (Northern Bavaria). Most of them work in cutting, sewing, upholstery, assembly and shipping. Customer service and administration are also located in Mannsgereuth.

In the summer of 2017, Sophie and Philipp von Ilberg bought the family business from the Mayer family. Together with a committed and highly qualified team of managers, they continue to run the company with passion, strategically realign it and expand it to be future-proof.

"Our goal is to further expand Mayer Sitzmöbel as a company here at this site, to be a reliable supplier and business partner, committed to quality and sustainability and to be an attractive employer for our employees."

Nowadays Mayer Sitzmöbel is an internationally recognized specialist for ergonomic seating in the office, living and contract sectors.
