Hussey Seating Company Replaces 80,000 Seats in Notre Dame’s™ Stadium Renovation

North Berwick, ME – September 1, 2017 – On Saturday, September 2, 2017 the Fighting Irish of the University of Notre Dame™ will debut their newly-refurbished stadium with Maine made seats as part of a multimillion dollar project to enhance the fan experience and revitalize the stadium.

A Maine company, Hussey Seating, was awarded the contract for the seating replacement of the 80,000-seat stadium. Replacing the aging wooden bleachers will be Hussey’s Perma-Plank, a durable roll-formed steel plank with Notre Dame Blue Perma-Cap bleacher covers. These covers are a resilient, maintenance-free, vinyl bleacher cover that will also fit over existing wood or aluminum bleachers.

Hussey Seating completed the upper bowl during the first stages of the renovations in 2016 and finished the lower bowl in August 2017.

Onward & Upwards it is

oday marks the one-year anniversary of the passing of our former President and CEO, Timothy B. Hussey. As the sixth generation of his family to lead the company, Tim's twenty-year tenure as President and CEO made him virtually synonymous with Hussey Seating Company and his untimely death at age 59 after a long battle with mucosal melanoma left a huge void here at Hussey, one we all feel to this day.
