About us

ZP United was founded by both Zwaardvis and Pörtner Seats in 2010. Both companies have been working together for more than 3 decades and produce special chairs, pedestals and table-columns for the maritime leisure and commercial markets. In addition Zwaardvis is a major supplier to the motor home and caravan industry, Pörtner Seats to the casino and gambling hall branch.

Pörtner Seats and Zwaardvis trade independently in Germany and the Netherlands under their parent company "Lande-Holding" (about 200 employees, Lande office chairs and furniture, Artifort design furniture. With factories in Schijndel / The Netherlands, Lanaken / Belgium, Bursa / Turkey).

Most parts of the portfolio are manufactured in-house. Zwaardvis is focussed on metal-production on modern machines, powder-coating, painting and seat foaming with own moulding facilities and assembly of the pedestals. Pörtner Seats produces and assembles the complete seat-upperparts. Small and middle series are dominating, customized parts are possible. Products are distributed worldwide.

Both companies are family-run in the 2nd and 3rd generation. Product quality, reliability and ergonomic design have priority before fashionable trends. All of our products benefit of a comprehensive part- and repair service even for elder models. Special parts will be manufactured according to sketch or drawing. We always try to be a reliable partner to do business with for seats and pedestals.

Federations: HISWA, ABYC, German Boat builder Association.
