The following text is from a leaflet issued by the Company to mark the 25th anniversary of the 203 chair's introduction :
"?On a wet November night 1953 ? at an unbelievably late hour ? the lights were burning in the prototype shop ? a familiar voice boomed out, ?Look, Tom, that will see us through two or three months!?. The Old Man was pointing at a chair he had been developing for years ? the 203 Easy Chair ? it has no other name but its number. The ?Tom? he boomed at was Tom Redrup, still very much with us today ? who shared with the Old Man in evolving the chair in its infancy ? and so is the chair with us today after 25 years."
