Seats Incorporated (“Seats”) is proud to announce it has been named, “Manufacturer of the Year” by the Sauk County Development Corporation (Baraboo, WI) for a Large, For-Profit company within Sauk county. The award honors recipients for their significant contributions within Business Accomplishments and Contributions to Enhance the Community. Seats was founded in 1952 and started production in a 1500 square foot factory with approximately seven employees.
Today, Seats employs (372) employees in three area facilities providing a full array of management, support, technical and manufacturing functions. Seats not only assembles finished seating products, but fabricates nearly all of the component parts to do so. They keep an inventory of nearly 30,000 different part numbers and facilitate the shipment of approximately 1,000 seats per day for the heavy-duty truck, emergency vehicle, delivery van, medium-duty motor coach, locomotive, construction equipment, and other over-the-highway and off-highway vehicle markets.
In spring of 2011, Seats will introduce their MV1 “Jump Seat”. The MV1 Jump Seat is a collaborative project between Seats Incorporated and a new automotive vehicle company in Indiana. It provides seating behind a taxi cab’s single driver’s seat, while providing seating for two on the rear bench seat and room for two wheelchairs next to the driver.
Building on Seats Incorporated’s knowledge in EVC technology, they have developed two new seating models for the locomotive industry – a passenger rail operator seat and freight locomotive seat.
