Our Vendors

We do great quality work here at Seatco, but the skill and the labor are only two parts of the triumvirate required to turn out a great finished product. We also need great materials and parts to work with, and that’s where our vendors enter the picture. We have many superb vendors; we treasure those relationships, and rely heavily on them for a timely supply of the “stuff” we use to rebuild a car’s interior or convertible top.

Here are some of our vendors:

Sewfine – There were a lot of air-cooled Volkswagens made, and sold, in the United States. Millions. And there are still quite a few around. These guys are one of our vendors because they have everything for those old air-cooled VW vehicles. It’s not common to see these here at our facility, like in the 70’s or 80’s, but we still get these cars in our shop – they’re simple and built like little tanks, but the interiors are usually completely beat when they show up here for a refresh. We call these folks (from their website): “Sewfine Interior Products was the originator of custom, made-to-order interior kits for the Volkswagen Industry. “It was our original designs that started the graphic interior craze that is still so popular today.” What brought customers to Sewfine was not only the pace-settings styles it had to offer, but also the vast selection of colors and textures. Coupled with the highest quality products possible, Sewfine rapidly became a household name worldwide for Volkswagen enthusiasts. It still remains so today, 25 years later.

So, just what is it that keeps customers choosing Sewfine for their custom interiors? The answer is a combination of factors. The staff at Sewfine are all VW enthusiasts. We have passion and pride about what we do each day.

Katzkin – Most of our customers that need new upholstery on their car that came from the factory with cloth seats have no idea that upgrading to leather is a very reasonable option, and in many cases, is actually less expensive than replacing the cloth. This is one of our vendors that, with us doing the work, can make that happen. Beautiful, high-quality materials, and this is what they say: “Imagine your car with a luxurious, premium leather interior.

Another one of our vendors we would be hard-pressed to replace. Here’s their own blurb about just one of the product lines, carpets: “Automotive Carpet is at the heart of what we do. Did you know you should consider replacing your automotive carpet if it’s 10 years old or older? When it comes time to get rid of that old, worn out flooring, trust the ACC brand.
