MTS SEATING – CONTINUING AS THE STA N D A R D I N C O N V E N T I O N A N D C O N F E R E N C E S E AT I N G

MTS Seating is the leading American chair manufacturer with more than 50 years experience designing and manufacturing the best-built, best-backed seating solutions in the industry. Widely recognized for the structural integrity of our frames, MTS is now garnering just as much attention for our seating versatility and designs. Unsurpassed quality and engineering make MTS chairs the best choice.

MTS is the standard. Our products are installed in prestigious conference, banquet, and convention facilities from Harvard University to the Las Vegas Strip, and others, including:

MTS Folding Products

MTS Seating now offers a full line of light-weight folding tables for convention, foodservice and lodging applications. In addition to folding tables, MTS has also introduced handling trucks, storage racks, portable staging and accessories. Combined with our storage and transport systems, we can provide the same level of sophisticated, behind-the-scenes operational support for our folding tables as we do for our banquet seating.

“Egg Shell” aluminum is what we call aluminum uprights with an .055" wall thickness.

Oh No!

They are less expensive to buy at first, but it’s a false economy. They will soon tear and have to be replaced. In the long run, you will pay twice. Our competitor is selling .055" aluminum, and calling it .065" Don’t take our word for this, measure the wall thickness of your aluminum. See if you are getting what you are paying for. Crown Industries’ aluminum uprights have true .065 inch wall thickness.
