INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (CitizenWire) — In a U.S. economy that needs a boost, Preferred Stadium and Theater Seating and Preferred Seating Designs are excited to announce that they will be creating new designs for high-quality stadium and theater seats through a partnership with three Midwest manufacturers.
Preferred Stadium and Theater Seating will focus on the marketing; Preferred Seating Designs on stadium design build; its partners will handle manufacturing.
“Of course we are thrilled to release new and exciting products in the theater seating arena,” says Frank Sumner, President for Preferred Stadium and Theater Seating, “but we are equally as excited about the impact that it will have on creating American manufacturing jobs.”
The first stadium seats to be released are the Liberty stadium seat and the Tuf seat. The upscale Liberty stadium seat design is manufactured with robotic quality precision and durability; the Tuf Seat is perfect for tighter budgets and may be retrofit onto existing bleachers or risers. Both are compliant with the American Disabilities Act.
Typically, performing art centers and conference centers require more upscale seating. Some more traditional theater seating venues may include: movie theaters, school auditoriums, lecture halls and service areas. Courthouses often are in need of fixed, individual-type seating as well as arena and larger spectator areas.
And, with the continued growth of mega churches, Concert seats are meeting the needs for church seating. These seats provide more leg room and back-to-back spacing. Fold-up, compact theater seats allow for additional space for increased traffic flow through the aisles and for greater seating capacity.
Sumner adds that, “Current outsourcing and importation of auditorium and stadium seats from countries where labor and materials are less expensive, has contributed to a weakened U.S. economy and unemployment; we aim to reverse this trend.”
