40 Years of Innovation
Navetta’s history spans over 40 years, having been built from our long tradition of developing innovative and ergonomic educational furniture.
When we began in 1971 as Synsor Corporation, one of our early projects was the development of revolutionary training workstations for a new Boeing facility. Those conceptual seeds quickly led to the development of similarly innovative solutions for the education market, with our initial products among the first workstations developed specifically for bringing multimedia content into classrooms and libraries.
We later spun off from Synsor and became ShuttleSystem and then, simply, Shuttle–the name was inspired by our revolutionary patented mobile, reconfigurable furniture system developed for high schools and community colleges.
While Shuttle Furniture continues to serve the K-12 marketplace, our newest division–Navetta—offers innovative fixed lecture hall and auditorium seating, ergonomic chairs, and other furniture products for higher education.
