About Us


HSM was founded in 1944 in Hickory, NC as Hickory Springs Manufacturing, a producer of coiled furniture springs. The company transformed over the years from a components supplier of springs and foam into a global manufacturer of integrated solutions and components for the transportation, furniture and bedding markets.  In addition, the company serves a growing number of diversified markets, including packaging, healthcare, and government/institutional markets.


We believe it is important to invest in our future. This includes investing in innovation, improved facilities, new technologies as well as bringing in the right people.



From seat cushioning and construction to school bus seats and restraints, HSM Transportation Solutions combines the expertise of the C.E. White brand, Triad Fabco and Hickory Springs to create quality seating solutions for the commercial/transit and school bus markets. 


HSM Transportation Solutions is proud to be the largest interior component supplier in the school bus industry and to have a component on every school bus made today.  We supply either foam, vinyl, metal frame or the complete safety seat. 


In addition, HSM Transportation Solutions is also a premier manufacturer of a full line of commercial seats, including luxury full-size seats, luxury shuttle seats, shuttle bus seats, sofas, salon seating, and foldaways for the commercial bus and van, shuttle and commuter transit markets.
