Founded in 1855, the Sears Manufacturing Company pioneered the development of specialized seats for the agricultural, construction and material handling industries. Upon entering the market, Sears immediately established a reputation for supplying technologically-advanced products that offered unparalleled comfort and durability. These qualities became the hallmark of a Sears seat, making Sears number one in the off-road seating industry.

Today, Sears Manufacturing Company is the leading manufacturer of suspension and non-suspension seating for agricultural, construction and material handling equipment and on-the-road trucks along with being the major seat supplier to Deere & Co., CNH, Caterpillar, Hyster, Yale, Freightliner, Bobcat, and many others around the world.
