Tempo is Out of Business; Here Are Alternatives to Tempo Barstools


Tempo is out of business

Tempo Industries, Inc. closed their business in August 2015. Tempo stools, parts, and factory repairs are unavailable.

We don’t know if Tempo Furniture will re-open under the same name or a different brand. The information we have below is based on word of mouth, and may not be accurate. However, we want to share what we know about Tempo with you and any Tempo customers who love the brand and its products.

We hope that Tempo can find a way to re-start their business and keep making the top quality stools they’re known for.

Why did Tempo close?

We’ve heard that Tempo’s closure is related to the dock strike in California. People have said that it prevented Tempo from getting their parts on time and created a backlog at the Tempo factory in Canada. The backlog is said to have created an operational hurdle that led to the closure of the business.
