The playoffs have begun and, while we’ve chosen to remain nonpartisan on our favorites, plenty can be said about the involvement of NAM members in making this year’s World Series possible.

As people file into the grandstands, they are likely to sit down in a seat made by North Berwick, Maine-based Hussey Seating Company.

Founded in 1835, Hussey is one of America’s oldest family-owned companies and a world leader in developing and manufacturing seating solutions.

Hussey has a tradition of innovation and seating “firsts” including the first to manufacture “closed deck” indoor telescopic bleachers and the first to use attached, fold-down chairs on a telescopic platform.

From schools and universities to theatres, arenas and the world’s great stadiums, Hussey Seating is famous for comfort, long-lasting quality and easy maintenance. They offer the broadest line of plastic and upholstered fixed chairs in the industry and their products are available from more than 60 dealers.

Hussey Seating can be found in the stadiums of winning teams like Foxboro’s new Gillette Stadium – home of the 2002 and 2004 Super Bowl champion New England Patriots – to fan-pleasing stadiums for the Arizona Diamondbacks, Seattle Mariners, Colorado Rockies and many others. With products found in 75 countries around the world, its no wonder their motto is “seating the world.”
