Baker Manufacturing receives National Recognition

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO, IL (KALB News Channel 5) -  JRB Studio, Baker Manufacturing’s commercial furniture brand, today announced it has received a Best of NeoCon Silver Award for its proprietary storage product, Straddle Ped, at NeoCon 2014.  NeoCon is North America’s largest interior design and commercial furniture showcase.  This is the third consecutive year the company has been recognized nationally for its ergonomic furniture and related products, which are manufactured locally at its facilities in Pineville, Louisiana.

Straddle Ped, is a distinctive low-profile, multi-purpose storage unit designed to accommodate the lowest ranges of height-adjustable worksurfaces while maximizing the use of below-worksurface space.  It features a felt-padded top compartment for easily charging digital devices, a convenient felt-lined pencil drawer, grommets for managing power access and an integrated locking system.  Straddle Ped, along with its sister product Mini Ped, are part of a new line of innovative storage solutions that provide compact, yet highly functional storage. 

In addition to Straddle Ped and Mini Ped, the company is unveiling two new lines of height-adjustable tables that are designed to enhance collaboration in the work environment – MediaShare and Alteeza.  MediaShare is a unique sit-to-stand, height-adjustable solution for creating collaborative and media-focused worksettings.  The product’s fully independent, synchronized legs, offer one-touch, dual-controller height adjustability.  Alteeza is a versatile and height-adjustable café-style table ideal for a variety of applications.  The single-column pneumatic design provides for instant adjustability in a range of 27” to 48” inches.

“Having Straddle Ped selected for Best of NeoCon recognition validates the innovation of the ergonomic solutions we continue to bring to market and is a wonderful acknowledgement for the work of the design, engineering and manufacturing teams in Pineville,” stated Charles E. Martin, CEO of Baker Manufacturing Company, Inc.
