American Seating Celebrates 125 Years

WZZM Another “pride of Grand Rapids” company, American Seating, is celebrating 125 years of business with a special exhibit at the Grand Rapids Public Museum.

Founded in 1886, the company was first called the Grand Rapids School Furniture Company.  Over time, the company expanded into seating for the performing arts, sporting events and transit.  Radio City Music Hall, Michigan Stadium and Comerica Park have all used American Seating products.

“We’ve been on the same campus since 1886, and the original factory is still in tact, so we have quite a lot in the vault,” says Deb McDermott with American Seating.

The American Seating exhibit at the Grand Rapids Public Museum continues through the rest of the year.
