Freedman Seating Company s mission is to produce excellent transportation seating products. It was 100 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. FSC employs more than 300 people and is one of the nation's largest specialty seating manufacturers. FSC manufactures seats and seating related products for many different applications. It is easiest to divide its products line into three categories: bus seating, rail seating and truck, specialty and commercial vehicle seating.
