Golden Technologies was founded in 1985 in a garage in Pittston, PA., by Robert Golden, Sr., and his partner, Fred Kiwak. The pair started building lift chairs, which are reclining chairs that have an electrical mechanism that slowly lifts the user up and out of the chair, or helps them lower into the chair. The pair took their product one step further than the competition, by building the entire chair at their facility instead of purchasing a reclining chair and simply adding the lift mechanism. Robert’s son, Richard Golden, took over as CEO of the company in 1991, a position he still holds today. The company currently manufactures four different product lines: scooters, power chairs, luxury beds and lift chairs.
Golden Technologies manufactures three different power chair lines. The Alante power chairs feature a swiveling seat mechanism, so that clients can utilize the power chair as either a front-wheel drive or a rear-wheel drive unit. Golden Technologies also manufactures the Alero foldable power wheelchair for easy transportability. In 2005, Golden launched its newest power chair, the Golden Compass, a true center-wheel drive power chair.

I purchased my chair in oct,2010, almost 6 months ago. I cannot believe how hard and uncomfortable the chair is. The lift mechanism does fine and the size is good, but the uphostery is lacking so much, it is hard to believe that a chair that costs so much, is lacking so much in this area. The main problem is the back of the chair is not shaped right or this particular chair was not made right. The lower half of the back, sticks out and scoots me out or forward. It is hard, hard, hard...not the comfortable padding that should be on this type of chair!! I am very unhappy with it, but do not know what to do about it. Am I stuck with this expensive chair, that is hard as a rock??? What are they thinking??
