MineExpo 2016 Green Ultra

Earlier this week, Gelco Products participated in MINExpo, as show so BIG, it only happens every four years.

Operator fatigue and comfort is a big concern in the mining industry, not only because miners work long hours, but SAFETY is a foremost priority. The GSeat ULTRA is an ideal solution for reducing vibration, fatigue and maintaining proper posture, while sitting in the seat of the the largest equipment in the world.

MINExpo is great show and the GSeat ULTRA is a well received solution for keeping Miners safe and productive.

 Phoenix, AZ – July 25, 2016 – Objectified

Henry Ford said you can buy a Model T, in any color, as long as it is black.  That is quite a mandate, but it was backed up by a lead in design.Ford Model T, Car seat cushion  Not just product design, but manufacturing design.  Ford is credited with creating previously unrealized economies of scale, by designing the production of his Model T, with assembly lines.  This simple maneuver, enabled Ford to create a car that was available for mass consumption, as long as consumers liked black.

Simple innovations expressed in equally simple designs, continue to improve lives and product engagement.  It is amazing to look around at how our lives are affected by product design intended to create engagement with users.  Then, equally amazing, is to look out over a production plant, at how these products go from drawing board to your hands. 

If you have a minute and cannot find something to binge on Netflix or Hulu, I suggest checking out OBJECTIFIED, by Gary Hustwit.  It is an engaging documentary that looks at product design and those credited with being leaders in it.

Phoenix, AZ – April 15, 2016 Gelco Products Corporate Office and Showroom

Gelco Products

The business environment of today is as dynamic of a period as I have ever known.  With the advent of the Electronic Marketplace, or E-Commerce, marketers are delivering lower prices to customers, but their message has to be dynamic and engaging, because the competition is a always lurking and able to go from concept to market with efficiencies never before realized.

Before Renovation

Gelco Products is a leader in design and material innovations in the seat cushion industry.  We  created the most innovative cushion ever conceived and now most often copied, with the GSeat, but just being clever is not good enough.  Customer engagement and lifetime value, are elements that we continually refine as we craft the GSeat into a global brand.

The new space also features a showroom that provides display space for the depiction of the GSeat in a variety of environments, where our attention to ergonomic designand quality materials shows why the GSeat is the leading product in making the user more comfortable, anywhere they sit.  Since our Showroom is open to the public, it also serves a resource for getting immediate feedback from our customers, as they can engage with us directly about where they find the most benefit from using their GSeat.

The resources of our new space were also designed to provide a signature venue for the creation of video and media content for our Social Media and general marketing campaigns.  Originality in design is a key contributor to the success of Gelco Products and the GSeat and this principle guides the creation of our media presence, as well.

Located at 4220 W. Summit Walk Court, Suite 1203, we encourage you to stop in and try a GSeat and see why so many people are realizing how important it is to be more comfortable anywhere you sit.

Spring is the time to get out and get moving! Get out of your office and take a deep breath of fresh air! Dispel the cobwebs with a small dose of sunshine and vitamin D. Your back will love you for standing and moving instead of sitting. Your immune system will love you for the sunny vitamin D, not to mention that healthy glow a few minutes in the sun gives you. Your boss will love you for your increased productivity gained by a short “back” break.

poor posture example

When you return to your office, think about your office chair and the way you sit for hours during the day.

How is your posture when sitting? Do you sit up straight with your feet flat on the floor? Do you slouch into a head forward position? Your posture must be good to maintain a healthy back and reduce shoulder and neck strain. Your office ergonomics must be proper.

Focus on your posture whenever you walk into your office. Remember to sit with good posture. If you begin to feel fatigued, stand up and stretch for one minute, and remember to breath. In addition to good posture while sitting and occasional stretching, you can revamp your office chair with an ergonomically designed seat cushion such as a GSeat or GSeat Ultra.

Placing a GSeat on your office chair helps you sit with better posture, so you can sit in comfort all day. GSeat-Ultra-White-Chair

When you leave the office, keep good posture in mind with a GSeat to suit your lifestyle. Be sure to sign up for our “Healthy Sitting” news and enjoy a 15% savings on many of our GSeat styles and colors!

Gelco Products uses a visco-elastic gel that disperses pressure at the point of contact. The gel maintains its shape better than foam products and because the gel never “bottoms out” and less material is needed to achieve a high degree of comfort. By incorporating functional design with quality materials, Gelco Products creates comfort-enhancing products that reduce pressure and increase comfort. ×
The slight forward slope helps you sit with good posture and helps to keep your low back in a natural and healthy alignment. This natural alignment helps to avoid back pain and fatigue. ×
The center relieved groove is inspired by the “split rail” bike seat design and is meant to relieve all pressure on soft tissues and the tailbone. ×
The patented, integrated “hassle free” handle makes it easy to take your GSeat anywhere you go. Better Posture, More Comfort…anywhere anytime ×
