The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) has announced Hussey Seating Company – a world leader in spectator seating solutions based in North Berwick, Maine – as a new corporate partner of the NFHS.
Hussey Seating Company is known worldwide for creating custom seating solutions for the sports and entertainment, education, corporate, worship and esports markets. Notable large-scale projects include the Alamodome, Bridgestone Arena, United Center, Enterprise Center and MGM National Harbor. The expertise applied to these major installations is used in every facet of its business, including as a leader in the North American High School market. From their bleachers seen in gymnasiums across the globe to their Clarin by Hussey Seating line of portable chairs seen on the sidelines of NBA arena and high school courts alike, Hussey Seating has solutions to outfit a variety of facilities.
“I think high schools and education facilities around the world are comforted by our work in the professional market which has led to our overwhelming success in the k-12 education market. They know that when we go into their high school gym, auditorium, arena, or esports venue, that we’re bringing a team that has developed solutions for NBA arenas, NHL arenas, NFL stadiums and the biggest entertainment venues in the world,” says Sean O’Leary, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Hussey Seating Company. Hussey’s work in the professional market is just a portion of its business though. Fueled by an extensive exclusive dealer model, O’Leary says that “If you’ve sat on a gym bleacher in North America in the last 60+ years, there’s a better chance than not it’s a Hussey bleacher, and that number is only growing.”
Hussey Seating is a sixth and seventh generation family-owned business that began in 1835. While foundationally a manufacturer, the company’s customer-focused approach has transformed it over the years to a business focused on solution development driven by innovation.
Hussey Seating Company’s lineup of telescopic bleachers and platforms, fixed seating and portable seating allows the organization to service a wide variety of audience venues – from high school gymnasiums to esports venues, performing arts centers, and arenas and stadiums in a variety of markets. With state-of-the art manufacturing equipment and an understanding of each customer’s challenges, opportunities and goals, Hussey Seating delivers quality seating solutions that provide exceptional lifetime value.
“Over almost two centuries of business, Hussey Seating Company has created products with the unique needs of its customers in mind – and that includes thousands of our member high schools across the country,” said Dr. Karissa Niehoff, NFHS executive director. “We know our member schools can continue to count on that longstanding commitment to care and consideration, which made this new corporate partnership with Hussey an easy decision to make.”
