Seat King (Pty) Ltd is a privately owned company which commenced business in February 1997 as a supplier of passenger and driver’s seats to the commercial passenger transport industry, covering the bus and rail markets.
The 4500 m² facility is located in Pretoria, South Africa where 95% of product range is completely manufactured. The staff complement is around 90 with current capacity of 10 000 seats per month.
Seat King is the biggest supplier of passenger seats to the bus industry in South Africa with a market share in excess of 70%. We supply product, in many cases exclusively, to all the OEM bus body manufacturers in South Africa and surrounding countries, to most corporate companies as well as to the retail market. Seats are delivered and fitted by our own staff within a 120km radius from our factory. We also supply to the surrounding countries Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Angola, Mozambique, Malawi and Kenya.
We pride ourselves as market leaders in respect of development of new seats as well as the long lasting durability of the products. We therefore have the confidence to offer better warranty terms than our competitors.
We have our own range of imported cloth and have a range of vinyls specially developed for the passenger industry including a range of modern printed vinyls. We also hold overseas agencies in respect of cloth, plastic and driver’s seats.
Seat King holds a ‘Level 2’ BEE certificate.
