JD Concepts

Supplier of Civilian / Army Vehicle Seating

JD Concepts are a supplier of specialist Operator and Driver Seats developed in conjunction with vehicle designers and end-users to provide the perfect solution.

Military Seat Applications

With the backing of the long established Chapman Driver Seating business under the same ownership, JD Concepts have supplied a number of designs for civil and military seat applications including heavy-duty lifting machines, light vehicle gunner seats to marine rescue boats. Our products are designed with Durability, Comfort and Serviceability in mind.


The brief for this project was to come up with a seat that could be fitted to a variety of vehicle types, but specifically for faster light vehicles such as pick-up trucks. The seat had to feature full 360 degree swivel (for Rear Gunner), before and after adjustment and a quick-release 6-way safety harness. A specific budget was also given and met for this project and JD Concepts are happy to work closely with new and existing clients to ensure all criteria are met.

Static Gun-Mounted

A simple Static Gun-Mounted Seat that needed to be hardwearing and simple. Built from scratch to the original design and specification and supplied within the required short lead-time.

Troop Carrier Seat

This seat was designed to replace an existing seat that could no longer be sourced. JD Concepts were given the brief by a major refurbishment contractor to supply a seat that not only satisfied the original demanding strength and safety requirements but improved them too.

Seating for Lifeboats

This project was to put in place a stock of spare / replacement seats for a well-known lifeboat operator, whilst improving the design of the existing product.

Curved Bench

Working with the vehicle manufacturer, JD Concepts came up with a design and product for Heathrow in-terminal vehicles that required a curved bench seat that needed to be hardwearing but cost-effective.
