QOR360 & WCAX Shoot TV Segment at MSI

Shoot 15

WCAX-Channel 3 from Burlington, VT recently shot a segment for their series called, “Made in Vermont” at MSI in Morrisville, VT.  This segment features a Vermont company called QOR360, maker of ergonomic chairs that are ”changing the way the world sits”.  Founders Dr. Turner Osler and Lex Osler explain the concept; “Active sitting keeps your core strengthened and body aligned.  We are designed to move, and when you stay in motion, your back appreciates it.”

QOR360 has experienced significant growth in their one-of-kind chair sales.  Until recently their chairs were assembled in their basement.  and they have been hauling the chairs out to be shipped to customer all over the world.  As orders have mounting, they have been challenged with scaling-up their production based on increasing orders.  The Osler duo met Keith Koehler, Business Development Manager for MSI on the Road Pitch in 2017.  The demand grew steadily and reached the point where they knew that partnering with MSI was the right solution to support their sustained and aggressive growth strategy.  Turner is pleased with the move, “Thanks for making this transition go so smoothly; Lex and I appreciate all the time you've poured into this project lately.”
