Hussey Seating Company

Contact: Ron Bilodeau Work Phone: 207-651-0045 Website: www.husseyseating.com
Details

Here at Hussey Seating Company we’re accustomed to encountering a reaction of disbelief when people learn we’ve been in business since 1835.  It’s unusual for a company to stay in one family’s ownership for that length of time, let alone a business with a history of manufacturing everything from long furrowed plows to combat the rocky New England soil in 1835, to fire escapes and ski lifts in the early 1900’s, all the way to spectator seating since 1960.

But here’s our secret: We’re not a manufacturing center. We’re an innovation center.

While today we produce the highest quality spectator and audience seating in the world, our real business is listening to, understanding, and solving our customers biggest problems. Almost 200 years ago customers needed plows, today they need spectator seating solutions custom fit for their audience. They need telescopic seating that can safely accommodate a high volume guests with ease and transform facilities from event to event seamlessly. They need a company they can trust with their biggest moments, and we’re more than prepared for the job.

For almost 200 years our goals haven’t changed:

  • We are a family business in it for the long run
  • We operate with honesty and integrity
  • We care about the people we work with

From high school gymnasiums, tracks and football fields, to professional arenas and performing arts centers, wherever you find spectators sharing a great moment you’ll find Hussey Seats.

What We Do

Romtec designs, manufactures, supplies, and constructs buildings and structures for all types of applications. We are architects, engineers, manufacturers, and contractors. Our process begins by designing a building that is particular to the needs of each customer. Then, Romtec provides the complete building plan sets and specifications for customer approval. Each project can then be sent out to bid or purchased directly. Finally, Romtec manufactures and supplies the complete building to be constructed by the contractor or by Romtec as a “turnkey” project.

Meeting Your Requirements

Romtec works with many unique customer requirements on every project. From ADA compliance to matching existing buildings, Romtec has the design expertise and the industry experience to meet many special requirements. Our goal is to work with our customers to provide the best site-built building or structure to meet their special needs.

Our Mission

It is the Mission of Romtec, Inc. to provide the highest quality parks & recreation and public utility buildings to public and private organizations in all 50 states. We believe that every American park and recreation site is a special resource and that our customers deserve the most attractive and durable buildings to meet their unique project needs.

Our History

Family owned and operated since 1979, Romtec Inc. found its start with the simple yet innovative polyethylene toilet riser that is still used in waterless “vault” restrooms nationwide today.

 Over the years, Romtec grew as a supplier of both “campground” and urban parks and recreation structures. Romtec has supplies thousands of structures nationwide. We have relationships with federal, state, county, and municipal agencies across the country.

 Founded on strong engineering, combined with a passion for quality, each Romtec building speaks for itself. Our line of advanced products is constantly expanding with the development of new structures using the latest in building materials. Today, the Romtec product line includes restroom structures of all types and designs, concession buildings, pavilions, storm shelters, urban restrooms, and much more.

 Here at Romtec, each and every project is unique, and we make it our mission to create a finished product that make both Romtec and our customers proud. With years of experience, an emphasis on quality, and an exceptional team, Romtec will continue to design and construct beautiful and functional buildings and structures in all 50 states and continue to act as the leader in the restroom industry.
