100+ YEARS OF STEELCASE
Founded in 1912 as the Metal Office Furniture Company in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Steelcase is over 100 years old.
Our innovation legacy began in 1914 when we received our first patent for the manufacturing process developed to make a strong, durable, low-cost fireproof wastebasket – a major innovation at that time.
Looking back, it’s clear our company has always been about looking forward. Our past, present and future are all about turning insights into innovations that unlock the promise of people at work and make the world a better place.
Steelcase was founded in 1912 by a few people with a strong commitment to integrity and doing the right thing. Their principles became the foundation of our company, passed on from decade to decade.
Our employees are our greatest asset and living these values is at the core of all that we do, just as it was in the past.
At Steelcase we:
- Act with integrity
- Tell the truth
- Keep commitments
- Treat people with dignity and respect
- Promote positive relationships
