Josef Glöckl founded the aeris company in 1996. In 1997 he presented a world innovation to the public: his new three-dimensional seat - the swopper. With this Josef Glöckl had opened up a completely new line of attack against the number one public health concern: backache.
The numerous awards won by the swopper, considered as a revolutionary active seat, and the rising sales led aeris to start up its own production. The 100,000th swopper was sold in 2004 and in 2006 another active-dynamic seat was added to the portfolio: the muvman - the active seat for standing/sitting. Since 2008 children of the age of 4 and above can also enjoy healthy sitting: on the swoppster 3D active swivel stool.
The aeris company became one of the TOP 100 of the most innovative small and medium-sized German businesses in 2007 and 2017, thus bearing witness to the potential and dynamics of the company whose success has been established and constantly extended through increasing international activities and a steady growth of the portfolio.
