Tony Mazlish, the founder of the X-Chair, created his first company, The HealthyBack Store, in 1994. At the time, the company sold items for those with back issues, including mattresses, pillows, and chairs.
In 2016, Mazlish completed his design of “the perfect office chair”. Spending an almost unbelievable $4 million on television advertising in its first year, Mazlish knew what he was doing and the company has become almost a household name.
Roxanne Cox, vice president of human resources at Hanover Company, a Houston-based private real estate company that develops and manages multifamily residential properties nationwide, placed an order for 155 X-Chairs in May of 2019 after her COO saw an ad on TV. “We must have tested 40 different chairs when he saw the advertisement,” Cox recalls. “X-Chair had all the features that we were looking for, which were lumbar support, flexibility, lightweight and ergonomic. ”
X-Chair maintains a corporate office in Beltsville, Maryland.
