Rock Hill company represents SC at Made in America event

A Rock Hill-based company was selected as South Carolina’s representation at President Trump’s "Made in America" event at the White House Monday.

Brothers Jason and Mike Seisel co-own the Casual Cushion Corporation in Rock Hill. Their parents started the company in Florida back in the 1970s.

The brothers had prior careers but took over the family business when their parents were ready to slow down.

They say they were surprised last week when Congressman Ralph Norman’s office called them asking a few questions about their company. Then shortly after, they got a call from the White House asking if they would like to be South Carolina’s representation for the Made in America event.

They were honored to be selected but were even more surprised when they were approached by the Executive Mansion’s Director of Operations.

“He said. ‘do you make cushions? I’ve been waiting for you guys,'” Jason Seisel said. “He took us up this staircase that I don’t think anyone else went on, and took us through the kitchen and showed us a chair and said, ‘I need 500 cushions for these chairs.'”

The brothers said they would be sending fabric samples to the White House this week.
