Our History

In 1949, World War II veteran and entrepreneur, Norm Seaman pursued a vision to create fabrics that could set a new world standard for versatility and performance. With a kitchen laboratory and two sewing machines in a basement workshop in Canal Fulton, Ohio, he developed the company’s earliest products. These early efforts established a platform for quality, performance and customer service that today distinguishes the company as a global leader.
