Member Spotlight:

Seaman Corporation traces its origins to a basement workshop in Canal Fulton, Ohio that was equipped with two sewing machines and fueled by Norm Seaman's dedication to create fabrics that could set a new world standard for versatility and performance. Today, Seaman Corporation has turned that dream into a reality with modern corporate headquarters, product development laboratories and a primary manufacturing facility in Wooster, Ohio. In addition, the company also has a state-of-the-art weaving and coating facility in Bristol, Tennessee. Each discipline within the company is committed to maintaining the founding principles, setting the highest standards for quality, innovation and customer service. Seaman Corporation fabrics are used in high performance roof systems, geomembrane liners, truck tarps, architectural structures and recreational products.
