Thursday, 12 November, 2020

GRAND RAPIDS — A recent cyberattack caused global operations for office furniture manufacturer Steelcase Inc. to shut down for two weeks, according to new information the company submitted to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Steelcase’s latest Form 8-K filed today highlights the devastation that ensued after the company reported the attack on Oct. 22. In that initial filing, Grand Rapids-based Steelcase stated that “although cyberattacks can be unpredictable, (Steelcase) does not currently expect this incident will have a material impact on its business operations or its financial results.”
