NEW ALBANY, OH--Feb. 15, 2013: Commercial Vehicle Group, Inc. , a leading supplier of fully integrated system solutions for the global commercial vehicle market, is pleased to announce that KAB Seating Limited (a CVG company based in Northampton, United Kingdom), will be exhibiting at the SIMA Show, Paris, France between February 24 and 28, 2013 at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre, Hall 3 E stand 085.

KAB Seating specializes in the design and manufacture of suspension seating for off-highway commercial vehicle applications. The KAB Seating display at the SIMA Show will include a comprehensive array of seats designed for a wide range of agricultural vehicles from small tractors through large harvesters.

KAB Seating's top-of-the-line agricultural tractor seat is theInvictus Air 85K6.  Available now, this new seatincludes heating and ventilation features as well as a semi-active suspension.  It improves driver comfort and safety by automatically adapting to varying terrain and conditions such as driving on a gravel track and then onto a ploughed field.  It achieves this by constantly monitoring the vibrations the driver is being subjected to and making adjustments to the damper characteristics every 15 milliseconds.

Invictus Air 85K6 has been engineered within the space envelope of a standard seat, so there is no need for additional tanks or piping.  It can simply be plugged into the cab's 12 volt electrical supply.  With this enhanced performance, the Invictus 85K6 has the potential to reduce driver fatigue and improve productivity. It is trimmed in deluxe leather with a distinctive spacer fabric that allows the heated air and ventilation system to work at maximum efficiency.  As a novelty, the Invictus Air will also be on display in a Camouflage fabric to appeal to traditional country tastes. 

Additional high-performance, innovative KAB Seating products to be showcased at the SIMA Show include the GSX 3000 for the truck market and the Executive ERGO office chair which features heating and massage capabilities.

An extended three-year guarantee will be offered on all KAB Seating product orders placed at or within 30 days of the Show with a special ten percent discount also offered during the period.   All visitors who try the Invictus Air and complete a short survey will receive a camouflage KAB hat. A daily prize drawing will take place at 3:00 p.m.

KAB Seating will be supported on the stand by its French distribution network whose personnel will be pleased to demonstrate products to farmers, contractors, machinery dealers and vehicle manufacturers.
