At Markant we look differently at the health of our employees.
We believe the most valuable asset to any company is not only their people, but also their health! With this fundamental knowledge, it’s our hope that health and productivity are major factors in workplace design. After all, nothing or no one will be better if we just sit still! That’s why our products are as dynamic as our company and vice versa.
Markant is not only the inventor, but also the main advocate of dynamic working. We fully support our vision and – therefore – our products. Fortunately, more and more people are doing that. Iis and in this way, we contribute to a healthy economy.
