Recently , Ellen Tucker, PPAI’s director of business development, and Jeff Rogers, account manager, have been on the road, visiting member companies in Washington state. On their journey, they met with Daniel Roso, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Gig Harbor supplier TravelChair, to learn more about their company and their outlooks on the industry.

Their conversation with Roso (above, with Rogers) at the TravelChair offices turned more towards the philosophies behind the company’s products. He and his wife bought the company from her parents. Roso says, “Fundamentally, we build a better mousetrap. It’s not rocket science, specifically, it’s an intent. We’re intentional about the rivets we use, the size of the holes the rivets go into and the specifications of the steel and the fabric. And we marry that with a quality control approach to how we manufacture it, who inspects it, the employees on the ground, and we put that all together. In a nutshell, we want to build something that’s going to last and that we’re proud of.”

He adds, “For us, it’s never been about the product but what the product accomplishes. For me and my wife, our best experiences are found outside. When we were younger, that was camping. In my 20s, it was hiking. Now, we go outside on a whole different level—its parks, its picnics, its team sports. We believe that’s where the good stuff is. Our product is a vehicle to that. We want that experience. We want our product to emulate that kind value, and so TLC is one of the things we put into the product.”

Slacker Stool- 1389V

"I now keep one in my car ready for any type of activity where sitting is preferable than standing. You can insert your own activity here. The size make this easy to grab when in doubt, and has often served as a life saver.

Easily stored and low-profile. Almost no bigger or heavier than an umbrella. You will not complain taking it with you and will be rewarded by being rested and comfortable when you get up."

    Joey Chair- 7789V

    "After owning this chair for a little more than half a year, I can confirm that this chair is all-around amazing. It is extremely comfortable and it is pretty light weight.

    As others have mentioned, the feet outperform other chairs that have straight feet in the sand. The feet design allows for the chair to sit on top of sand rather than sinking in.

    My friends are always jealous when I bring this chair to the park (which is every time, since its so easy to pack). So much that we often end up taking turns on it 
    If you're debating whether or not to get it, do yourself a favor and just buy it!"

    -Roger C.

    Big Kahuna- 599

    "Awesome sturdy comfortable chair. I don't know why but I am the King Champion of breaking folding camp chairs. I am 6'2" 295lbs and have broke many 300lbs rated chairs, one chair cut up the back of my knee pretty good when it failed.

    My son is 6'7" 325lbs and plays major college football, he has not even come close to breaking as many chairs as I have. Well the Big Kahuna Chair is rock solid and comfortable I don't ever see this chair failing. If it ever does I'll post it."
