Built by buddies
Readydesk was invented by Joe Nafziger and Ben Larson, best friends since age four. The duo grew up on neighboring farms in the Midwest, and have each lived on the West Coast for the past decade.
In 2010, Joe built a crude standing desk after reading several articles on the dangers of sitting too much. Ben saw potential in the ability to have this contraption adjust to your individual height. That way, anyone could benefit from proper standing posture.
We spent three years building prototypes, testing them on coworkers, and consulting with chiropractors and mechanical engineers on health-conscious design.
Since then, we’ve grown incredibly fast, but we still manufacture here in San Diego. Only now, it’s an actual production facility, not a cramped, one-car “shedquarters.”
When you get a Readydesk, you’re supporting a small business that was born from an idea, and a stubbornness to make sure that idea came to life. We can’t wait for you to start feeling better by standing up more.
