Concept Seating Limited began trading in August 2003. Its two directors are Mike Stellas (Managing) and Mark Badger (Works). Both were previously part of the management team of Scandus Design Limited having been employed there since 1981 up until its closure in 2001, thereby providing Concept Seating with combined experience of over forty years at its inception.

In fact, more than ninety per cent of the company's staff were also employed by Scandus Design Limited and were hand-picked for their experience in the production of passenger transport seating. With all this experience behind the company, Concept Seating can be confident of being able to deliver a quality product and a reliable service which is sought by the manufacturers of Passenger Transport Vehicles in the 21st century.

In 2004, Concept Seating set up a supply partnership with Esteban UK Limited. Being one of the largest seating manufacturers in Europe, the partnership opened up the opportunity to provide specialised DDA Wheelchair Tip Up Seating and Built In Seating to compliment the Esteban seating ranges. This offered Bus Manufacturers the 'one-stop-shop' solution for their purchase of passenger seating. Through this route Concept Seating has been able to become party to the supply of products to companies such as Wrightbus, Optare, Plaxtons, Scania and Alexander-Dennis who naturally demand and expect the highest standards of service and quality. By providing seating to these bus manufacturers, the Company's workmanship is travelling the country on buses operated by First Group, Arriva, Stagecoach and Blazefield.

Following the joint venture with Esteban UK Limited, Concept Seating was led towards their parent company, Asientos Esteban SL, in Spain. Tip Up Seating and Built In Seating is now supplied to Asientos Esteban for their contracts within the European Market. During the early association with Asientos Esteban, they very kindly carried out exhaustive fatigue/usage testing on Concept Seating Tip Up Seating in order for the seat to be certified as 'fit for purpose' in the European Market.

In recent years, Concept Seating has grown and actively diversified into other upholstery/furnishing fields. Items have been developed and manufactured for hotel and hospitality markets, including bedroom, restaurant and cafe interiors. Since 2006 the company has been a key supplier in the major refurbishment of bedrooms for the UK's biggest hotel chain. The Concept workforce can turn its hands from bus seats to soft-furnishings at a moment's notice!
