Global Sales, Local Support

You'll find Hussey Seating products on every continent on Earth (yes, we've even sold Portable Chairs to researchers in Antarctica!). We were selling our products internationally long before Tom Friedman declared the world "flat", and we've always known that a key to selling our products globally is to support them locally.

Can your business afford to be anti-social?

Caught an interesting article in the Harvard Business Review today on the disconnect between the seemingly natural fit of social media with a salesperson's business development activities and the surprising number of sales professionals who have yet to tap into these tools in a meaningful way...

"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.

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.

We'll be debuting these new products at NeoCon 2012 in June, but you can get all the details right now here at HusseySeating.com, or ask you local Hussey Seating dealer for more details today. Either way, let's put a little sexy into your next lecture room design!

February 2012 Regional Dealer Meetings

We just finished two weeks on the road meeting with our Hussey Dealer Network and Clarin Dealers / Reps. It was a great two weeks meeting with these very talented seating experts. Whenever I go out on the road and with our Dealers, I am once again reminded as to how fortunate we are to be aligned with such talented individuals who know how to sell our products.
