DEERFIELD, ILL.— Further building on its expansive office furniture offering, United Stationers Furniture Division will unveil the newest products in its Alera® product line at NeoCon June 13-15 at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago. Designed to help dealers effectively compete in the market and boost their profit margins, a variety of new seating and modular office pieces will highlight United’s exhibit.

The SedinaAG Series Straight Front Desk Shell is among the new Alera products being introduced at NeoCon. Featuring modern silver metalwork and contemporary design, the new SedinaAG creates myriad desking configurations to suit a variety of business needs. Durable thermally fused wood grain laminate finishes are scratch, dent and water resistant with a protective 3mm edge banding, while a one-inch thick commercial grade elevated work surface withstands the everyday rigors of a busy office. These desk shells can be combined with reversible returns/bridges and credenzas to create "L" or "U" shaped configurations.
Another new product being launched at NeoCon is the Alera® K8 Series Ergonomic Multifunction Mesh Chair, which combines advanced ergonomic technology with luxurious elegance. The mesh suspension provides firmness, breathability and comfort, while its waterfall seat edge reduces pressure at the back of the knees for improved circulation and added comfort. This full-function chair features seat glide adjustment, multiple locking positions, adjustable lumbar support, and synchro tilt. Its high-tech wire control mechanism also provides easy reach access to all chair controls.

New red and white options are also being introduced at NeoCon for the Alera® Neratoli High-Back Swivel/Tilt Chair. Ideal for the modern office or executive conference room, this chair has soft-touch leather upholstery, chrome accents, contemporary cushioned seating and a slim profile. Like the Multifunction Mesh Chair, this model also features a waterfall seat for enhanced user circulation and comfort. A five-star chrome base with hooded casters on this popular model also offers easy mobility.

“We’re passionate about continuously offering innovative new products that can help our furniture dealers increase profitability and stand out in the marketplace,” said Geneva Savage, brand manager of United Stationers Furniture Division. “NeoCon is an excellent forum to share new products and connect with our customers.”

All new Alera products are GREENGUARD® certified and come with a manufacturer’s five-year limited warranty.
