Together, fluidconcepts and Inline provide the most innovative and cost-effective contract solutions to our dealers and end customers.


INLINE is committed to conducting business in a socially responsible manner. This includes constant efforts to reduce the impact of our operations and products on the environment as well as designing functionality into our products to make them user friendly for those with special needs.

Environmental Issues:

Our industry association, BIFMA, is working diligently to establish industry-wide standards for the manufacture of furniture products that respect the environment. This industry focus emphasizes recycling, reusing and reducing waste. INLINE is an industry leader today in this effort, and we believe our environmental commitment and our manufacturing methods stand up very well when compared with all outside accreditation standards.

With regard to our products:

  • Well over 50% of the materials used to make our furniture are manufactured within a 500 mile radius of our factory.
  • All core material is low emission particleboard with Green Cross environmental certification.
  • Treo, Boardwalk and Stages Workstation Systems have achieved both SCS Indoor Advantage and SCS Indoor Advantage Gold certifications from Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), verifying these products meet the ANSI/BIFMA M7.1-2007 standards for air emissions, required for LEED certification.
  • Particleboard is primarily compressed organic wood fibre, recycled from the waste products of the forest industry, which itself is a renewable resource.
  • In some applications, we use board containing non-wood, cellulose fibre.
  • All offcuts, sawdust, and board waste are either recycled or re-used.
  • Fabric covered tackboards are made from 100% recycled materials.
  • Both plastic and metal components are sourced from suppliers who optimize the content of recycled materials during manufacturing.
  • All purchased materials & supplies are packaged only in recyclable containers.
  • On all large projects, furniture is bulk-packed to minimize packaging waste and maximize freight efficiency (thereby minimizing fuel consumption).
  • INLINE welcomes the return of cartons and other packaging materials for re-use in our own facility.
  • At the end of its life, all INLINE products & components can be either recycled or re-used.

With regard to product design:

  • Product components are sized to provide maximum utilization of board sizes, reducing off-cuts and waste.
  • Designs permit easy extension and reconfiguration making them quickly adaptable to changing work environments, thereby minimizing product obsolescence and maximizing refurbishing opportunities; all of which reduces waste.
  • All products are designed to ship flat-packed and ready-to-assemble which maximizes shipping efficiency and minimizes fossil fuel consumption, with the exception of files.
  • All work surfaces incorporate high impact PVC edging to extend the life of the product indefinitely, thereby minimizing future waste.
  • PVC edging can also be removed at the end of its useful life, making both the board and PVC recyclable.
  • Corrugated cartons are sized to tightly fit finished products, thereby minimizing corrugated consumption.

With regard to our processes:

  • Use products and processes designed to minimize off-gassing.
  • Use solid adhesives primarily, which avoids gas emissions and waste issues associated with over-spray, but when spray methods are employed, we use water-based adhesives exclusively.
  • Do not use any 'controlled chemicals' or known carcinogens in any process.
  • Steel components are finished with hybrid epoxy powder-coat, a process which minimizes waste and discharges.
  • Cutting, drilling, and shaping equipment is connected to a sophisticated air exhaust / dust collection system to both capture recyclable sawdust and minimize dust in the factory environment.
  • Orders are programmed by sophisticated cut-plan optimization software to maximize board yield and thus, reduce waste to the absolute minimum.
  • Employ state-of-the-art, high-production, CNC (computer numerically controlled) equipment, powered by energy efficient electric motors.
  • Heat with natural gas, radiant heaters, the most fuel efficient heat source and cleanest burning of fossil fuels.
  • Operate our forklifts using natural gas.
  • Use high-efficiency fluorescent lighting in our offices.
  • Use paper with recycled & post-consumer waste content and re-use paper for internal office reports.

Special Needs

Our product design has been influenced by the need to provide functionality for those with special needs.

  • Many standard desk surfaces can be field retro-fitted with gables to accommodate wheel-chair use.
  • Many desk surfaces can be field retro-fitted with gables to accommodate standing height applications, should either health needs or functionality require.
  • Continuously height-adjustable worksurfaces are a standard product, providing heights starting as low as 24" going to as high as 51".

We believe that environmental and social responsibility is integral to the well being of our employees, our customers and our community in both our working environment and our natural environment.
