Southeastern Surfaces & Equipment (SSE) recently was selected as the sole Florida sales representative of Hussey Seating Company, making our mother-daughter owned business in Southeast Volusia County the exclusive representative of the sixth generation, Maine-based corporation!
Hussey Seating Company sells and services its products internationally, and its extensive line includes telescopic platforms with bleachers or chairs, indoor and outdoor fixed seating, portable seats, fixed learning and healthcare seating systems, and bleacher covers.
According to our own Tracie Ward, President of SSE, our company was chosen as Hussey’s Florida representative based on its distribution capacity and personal interviews with the SSE leadership. Because of the new partnership with Hussey Seating Company, our full-service department also will create a Hussey Service Center in the Sunshine State. As with our other products, SSE can install new Hussey products or upgrade existing Hussey installations, and we have the ability to bring older bleachers, even those not manufactured by Hussey, up to current code.
Tim Hussey, president and CEO of Hussey Seating Company said: “We are excited that Southeastern Surfaces & Equipment will be representing Hussey in the state of Florida. SSE’s expertise in installation and service, along with their customer-centric focus, are a perfect fit for the quality and service that Hussey seating is known for.”
Partnering with Hussey Seating Company is an honor for us! Being able to bring the full line of high-quality Hussey products to customers throughout Florida not only takes our product offerings to the next level, but also will enhance facilities around Florida beyond measure, according to Sonya Eggerton, our CEO.
