Seating Services LTD

Our commitment and knowledge enables you to take a back seat.

Welcome to Seating Services Ltd, a family-run business that has grown from humble beginnings in 2004 in the spare room of a family home to a trusted name in the retractable seating industry in the UK. Our journey began as a subcontracting company utilising self-employed personnel to complete our works, and over the years, we have evolved into a robust, multifaceted enterprise with a strong family ethos at its core.

Our director, Tim, began his career as an engineer in one of the pioneering retractable seating companies in 1994. This experience laid the groundwork for the establishment of Seating Services Ltd in 2004. Tim’s passion for repair and refurbishment, a trait shared by his family, has been a driving force behind our company. From bicycles and motorbikes to household items, our philosophy has always been to repair and improve rather than replace.

The company saw significant growth when Tim’s son, Tobi, joined full-time in 2017. This marked a transition from relying on third-party help to building a team of skilled employees, many of whom were already connected as family and friends. This close-knit team operates from our private premises, where all aspects of our business, from manufacturing and upholstery refurbishment to business relations, are conducted.

At Seating Services Ltd, our approach is hands-on and collaborative. Every member of our team contributes across various sectors, including manual labour, office work, and finance. This ensures the smooth operation of our business and allows us to offer a personal touch to our clients, who often know us not just as service providers, but as familiar faces behind the emails and phone calls.

Our customer base has grown significantly, with many relying on us year after year for their seating maintenance needs. As we have expanded, our quality of work and workforce have continually improved, and we maintain close ties with external companies who assist with specialised repairs. These collaborations are with local, small businesses, fostering a community of mutual support and shared success.

We pride ourselves on our craftsmanship and attention to detail. Every piece of work, whether it’s for lecture theatres, sports halls, or drama theatres, is crafted by hand to ensure the highest quality. We understand the investment our customers make in their seating arrangements, so we dedicate ourselves to ensuring these systems last as long as possible.

While we predominantly service retractable seating, our in-house upholstery team is also equipped to handle any upholstery needs. With access to high-quality materials and talented upholsterers, no job is too small or too big for us. Whether you have a specific requirement or need some guidance, feel free to drop us an email with photos of what you’re after, and we’ll be more than happy to assist you.

At Seating Services Ltd, we bring together decades of experience, a strong sense of community, and a dedication to craftsmanship to provide unparalleled service in seating maintenance, refurbishment, and upholstery. Our journey from a small family-run business to a reputable company in the UK reflects our commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction.
