Founded in 1945, Kirwin & Simpson are a 4th-generation family business dedicated to creating quality products and providing effective follow-up services. Based in Grays (UK), we specialise in the design and manufacture of custom theatre and auditorium seating across the globe.
The bespoke nature of our seats allows us to use a wealth of fabrics and wood shaping techniques, alongside traditional skillsets and upholstery methods to compliment the aesthetic of any venue. Our seats can withstand the most rigorous demands of modern theatre-going audiences and acoustic challenges. Kirwin & Simpson are the exclusive global performance venue licensee of ProBax Advanced Comfort Technology, an ergonomic seat foam aiding the well-being of patrons with extra comfort, lumbar support and better sightlines.
Our philosophy is to foster long-term relationships with clients by providing custom and comprehensive designs, sustainable manufacturing, and an expert installation service for all kinds of seating requirements. Our tailored support service is designed to minimise disruption and downtime in venues’ busy schedules.
We are proud to count virtually all London’s West End theatres among our clients, with a large & diverse client base from the cinema industry and other sectors throughout the UK, US, Australia & Europe.
