Bringing Collaboration, Art to Hospitality Seating Monday, May 4, 2015

TEMPERANCE, MI, May 04, 2015 - MTS Seating’s Custom Shoppe Brings Designers’ Vision to Life.  Designers leave no element untouched when creating a hotel, restaurant, club or other facility. MTS Seating’s Custom Shoppe assists them in assuring that their seating is a perfect fit for the facility’s overall look.

MTS is a one-stop source for design, engineering and manufacturing of hospitality seating for all applications. “Because we offer everything in one location, we can collaborate with designers to help them bring their vision to life,” explained Bart Kulish, MTS president.

Product customization can be necessary for a variety of reasons, exemplified in an MTS project for Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio. Seating for ballroom and other conference, meeting and food service spaces had to be customized for special events within the university’s new Ohio Union. In addition, MTS provided customized chairs for the Staters’ Club, featuring a chair-back etched with the university’s alma mater.

Custom Shoppe projects include everything from modifications to existing products to development of entirely new products. “We begin with a vision or design for a facility, and how the designer imagines the seating to fit in,” Kulish said. “From that point, the sky’s the limit in determining the final product.” Using an original idea from a designer, or a request to customize an existing design, the Custom Shoppe will create concepts that can incorporate customized structural or non-structural components, including:

Collaboration with MTS on Custom Shoppe projects runs from initial designs and engineering to tooling, prototyping and testing, manufacturing and custom finishing, and shipping. Individualized customer service and warranties assure that the collaborations continue into the future.

“In whatever space a designer envisions, we can collaborate on just the right seating that will fit its mood and purpose,” said Kulish.
