NEW YORK, May 1, 2008 — Humanscale announces that sales revenues in 2007 reached $184 million, a year-over-year increase of 23.4%.

Says Humanscale Founder and CEO, Bob King, “Our success in 2007 was driven by a combination of well-received new product launches, growth within existing markets, and expansion into new markets, namely healthcare and hospitality.”

New products launched in 2007 include the Liberty Side chair, CPU600 CPU holder and Access Rail. In addition to new products, steady growth within core product lines such as the Freedom and Liberty chairs, 5G keyboard support, M4 and M7 monitor arms, and the Diffrient Light helped drive Humanscale’s overall sales.

Humanscale won 19 design awards in 2007, including the Product Design of the Year Award from the International Design Awards, two Best of IIDEX/NeoCon Canada Gold Awards, and a pair of GOOD DESIGN Awards. The entertainment industry has also recognized Humanscale products. Notably, Liberty and Freedom chairs appeared on television programs Shark, Rules of Engagement, Heroes, CSI Miami, Boston Legal, Weeds, Bones, Las Vegas, House, 24, Ugly Betty, Life, and Private Practice; and in films such as Transformers, Bourne Ultimatum, Premonition and I Think I Love My Wife.

“We’re very pleased with Humanscale’s performance in 2007 and predict continued success in 2008,” King says. “And although 2008 will no doubt present market challenges, we are optimistic for ongoing growth resulting from innovative new products, further expansion, and a tremendous staff that believes in what we do.”
