Who We Are

Founded in 1997, First State Manufacturing began as a small two-person operation in Eli and Sher Valenzuela’s garage. Today, First State Manufacturing is a firmly established industrial sewing company – operating out of a 76,000-square-foot manufacturing facility and employing more than 70 highly trained full-time staff. This well-known industrial seating and upholstery supply company now partners with some of the nation’s largest government and commercial entities; such as Lockheed Martin, Procter & Gamble and Amazon.

Our Philosophy

“Integrity Sewn In.”

At First State Manufacturing, we believe that integrity is the key to assembling exceptional textile solutions and building lasting relationships. It’s the compass that guides us, and it’s sewn right into everything we do.

Our talented craftspeople go above and beyond to make sure every stitch and every thread exude the same structural integrity we embrace as a team, whether we’re delivering our first price estimate or the final order in a five-year contract.

At First State Manufacturing, we hold ourselves – and our commercial sewing products – to the highest standards, and we expect our partners to do the same. We want our industrial seating products and textile services to speak for themselves so that you – and your end user – feel confident knowing that you got our very best … and then some.

Who We Are

We are what we sew, and at First State Manufacturing, we sew with the threads that connect and protect us.

We’re the train and airplane seating on your way to visit family or to that meeting with colleagues. We’re the coveted front seat the kids race to on the tallest roller coaster.  We’re the protective vest the umpire wears to call balls and strikes at the Little League playoffs. And we’re the seats, gear, and upholstered surroundings that help our brave military men and women remain safe and to be the best that they can possibly be, everywhere they go.

With a wide-range of field-tested, battle-proven capabilities, and unparalleled levels of customer service, First State Manufacturing is equipped and ready to meet your commercial sewing and industrial seating needs – big or small, little-league or big-league – with high-impact solutions that last.

We are First State Manufacturing. Integrity Sewn In.
