Minimizer introduces its newest innovation, Minimizer Long Haul Series heavy-duty truck seats.
“This isn’t our core area, so we partnered with a global leader, Isringhausen, to produce a truck seat drivers will love,” says Minimizer CEO and Chief Visionary Craig Kruckeberg . “Nobody manufactures better truck seats than ISRI, and these stand up to the Minimizer ‘Tested & Tortured’ reputation.”
Minimizer says the Long Haul Series consists of six different seats, all of which are equipped with 14 standard features, including several unique to the heavy-duty trucking industry.
Included in the 14 standard features are upper and lower lumbar support; a 135-degree swivel base that allows the driver to spin the seat inboard if they want access to the cab; both air height adjustment with memory as well as a physical shock absorber; and numerous adjustments built into the seat to ensure ultimate comfort for each body type, whether a driver is 6′ 4″, 280 lbs., or 5′ 5″, 110 lbs.
“The seats spent years in development, partially due to the fact we were very specific with the features. We wanted our seats to stand out from the rest,” Kruckeberg says.
“One of the keys in proper ergonomic design is adjustability. It’s such a critical component, which is one of the reasons I have great admiration for the work that’s been done in the design of the Minimizer truck seat,” says Joseph Sweere, Doctor of Chiropractic and tenured professor at Northwestern Health Sciences University. “With its many unique features, I think the Minimizer truck seat is the best I’ve seen on the market today.”
In addition to the 14 standard features, Minimizer says drivers have the option of choosing a heated backrest and seat cushion, along with either a cooled backrest and seat cushion or a revitalizing massager.
“The Revitalizer is awesome. We’ve already had several drivers say they love it,” Kruckeberg says. “You turn it on when you’re 20 minutes from your destination to promote blood flow. It improves your circulation so that when you get out of the cab, you’re not stiff and sore. It creates fewer work compensation injuries.”
Minimizer says it also subjected its seats to rigorous testing, allowing them to be issued with the company’s standard Lifetime Warranty.
“[Isringhausen’s] manufacturing prowess combined with Minimizer’s powerful brand creates a heavy-duty truck seat completely unique to the aftermarket,” says Gary Slater, ISRI USA general manager. “This is a standard that no other aftermarket seat can match.”
