Not your father’s truck seat

BLOOMING PRAIRIE, Min. – Minimizer has unveiled its new Long Haul Series of 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,” said Minimizer CEO Craig Kruckeberg. “Nobody manufactures better truck seats than ISRI, and these stand up to the Minimizer tested and tortured reputation.”

The Long Haul Series offers six different seats all equipped with 14 standard features, several Minimizer says is unique to the heavy-duty trucking industry.

Some of the features include upper and lower lumbar support, a 135-degree swivel base, air height adjustment and physical shock absorber and several other built in adjustments for driver of all shapes and sizes.

“The seats spent years in development, partially due to the fact we were very specific with the features,” said Kruckeberg. “We wanted our seats to stand out from the rest.”

Drivers can also choose an optional heated backrest and seat cushion, along with a cooled backrest and cushion, or a revitalizing massager.

“The revitalizer is awesome,” said Kruckeberg. “We’ve already had several drivers say they love it. 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.”

“One of the keys in proper ergonomic design is adjustability,” doctor of chiropractic and tenured professor at Northwestern Health Sciences University Joseph Sweere said. “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.”
