Since 1950 Carroll Seating Company has been dedicated to representing the highest quality products in the most professional manner possible. We have charged our people with the responsibility to be the most knowledgeable and hard working in the industry. Carroll Seating Company’s goal is to be the source of quality products, solutions, and business propositions that meet the challenges of our customers’ long term investments by establishing a relationship based on trust and performance.
Carroll Seating Company (CSC) was formed in 1952 by Patrick Carroll, Sr. He began the business by selling church pews out of the basement of his home. He gradually began selling furniture to private schools and later entered into the public school market. As the company grew, Patrick purchased his own building near downtown Chicago, where the business was located for 51 years. In May 2004 Patrick Carroll, Jr. relocated the business to Elk Grove Village, IL.
In 1998 Patrick Carroll, Jr. (University of Kansas, School of Business, 1977) assumed the positions as President and Chief Operating Officer, and Michael Carroll assumed the position as General Manager of Operations in Kansas City, Missouri.
