Global Upholstery Solutions

Global Upholstery Solutions (GUS) is part of the Stannah Group. The Stannah family have been making lifts of all types for almost 150 years. In 1975 they added designing and manufacturing stairlifts in to their mix and they now sell them over 40 countries worldwide.

A particular challenged faced by GUS was that they were ordering full hides of leather to cover their high end Sofia and Solus chairs. They would hand cut the seat kits in house, a timely and expensive process producing a lot of wastage and taking up a number of man hours.  



Boyriven offered to provide pre-cut leather kits to save time and wastage for the upholsterers working on the Sofia and Solus Stannah chairs. These high quality leather kits would be cut to identical sizes via a laser cutter for the greatest accuracy, be pre-packed in identifiable boxes and stored locally in Boyriven’s Andover warehouse. GUS agreed to this fantastic offering, and these kits are now readily available alongside off the shelf products such as vinyls and carpets for next day delivery to meet their customer needs.
