Navy Counter Stool by Emeco

Emeco was founded as a response to a commission from the Navy to make chairs for submarines in WWII. The contract specified that the chair had to be able to withstand torpedo blasts to the side of a destroyer. Founded by Winton Dinges in 1944, the company employs a 77 Step Process that was developed by Alcoa and Emeco to manufacture a chair so durable that it far exceeded the Navy's specifications.

About The Manufacturer

Emeco Furniture LogoEmeco's founder, Winton C. Dinges, was a master tool and die maker with an engineering background. He believed that a hands-on approach to production using outstanding materials would lead to outstanding design and outstanding furniture. It is a vision that has served Emeco well since 1944.

Few organizations have as storied a history as the Electric Machine and Equipment Company.

Emeco and its manufacturing facilities are based in Hanover, Pennsylvania.

    Comments about Emeco Navy Counter Stool:

    This is the classic NAVY chair with longer legs. What can you say, it's Emeco. The 77 step process is worth it. I have four small kids that go through chairs like nothing. These stools Have a lifetime warranty but I doubt my kids can bring the force of a World War II era torpedo blast. They have finally met their match.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Awesome service from initial online order through expedited delivery. The service service team made proactive calls and emails throughout the entire experience and followed through on everything they said they would do. Christie Morrow rocks!

    Top notch service! I wish I purchased furniture more often I would LOVE to deal with this company more often!
