"Not my father's gym bleacher company"

That was CEO Tim Hussey's wry observation after reviewing the marketing campaign for Hussey's new line of fixed lecture room seating, the Designer Collection

While it's true that the new Sleek Series and Stimulate Series of fixed lecture room seating and our new Latitude, Lunar and Equinox multi-purpose seat modules are somewhat of a new direction for Hussey, despite Tim's tongue-in-cheek observation, in many ways the opposite is true – this is exactly his father's bleacher company!

A company that was founded on innovation; a company that's reinvented its product offerings several times over the course of its 177-year history; and most importantly a company that remains true to its core values: 

  • We're a family business that's in it for the long run
  • We operate with honesty and integrity
  • And we care about the people we work with 

So while Philip Hussey, Jr. may not have immediately recognized the face of these new products, we're pretty sure he'd have seen the family resemblance instantly.

Flexibility and Multi-Purpose

Today more than ever we all crave flexibility in our life styles, and we like to keep options open. This is true for public seating as much as it is for our careers, our wardrobes, and our workplaces. Hussey Seating has long been the leader in providing expertise to help buildings operate flexibly and to serve multiple purposes. The true value of telescopic seating is space recovery, done quickly.

Lecture room chic - where seating meets sexy

Let's face it - this isn't a blog where the word 'sexy' applies very often. But then again we don't introduce seating solutions like our new Designer Collection of fixed lecture room seating every day, so we're making the most of it!

When we acquired Clarin Seating back in June 2011, we promised ourselves and our dealers that we'd bring new life to our fixed lecture room seating line, and this introduction is the first step in that process. We took two fresh conceptual designs that Clarin had in the works and applied our engineering expertise to turn them into fully functional products that remain true to the aesthetic intent of the conceptual designs.

Both the Sleek Series (above) and Stimulate Series (below) were developed with with clean, minimalist lines and intended to give the A&D community the freedom to tailor their final configuration to complement to the design vision of the space they'll occupy. And the new Latitude multi-purpose seat is only one of several new seating solutions we're introducing as well.
