About Freedman Seating Company

It was over 120 years ago that Hyman Freedman began making seat cushions for horse-drawn buggies. He knew his craft well, and was awarded a diploma of honorable mention for the 1892 Columbian Exposition in Chicago for his skill in upholstery. A century later, the tradition continues. Freedman Seating Company is still a family owned-and-operated business committed to meeting the highest standards in the industry. Today, Freedman Seating Company is one of the nation's largest specialty seating manufacturers. We manufacture seats and seating related products for many different applications. Our product lines include bus, rail, marine, delivery truck, specialty and commercial vehicle seating. Freedman Seating Company currently has nearly 750 employees including manufacturing, sales, engineering and administrative personnel. We are committed to keeping manufacturing in Chicago and strengthening the industry for growth and sustainability.
