Milsco Manufacturing Co., a Jason Industries Inc. (NASDAQ:JASN and JASNW) company, will welcome Harley-Davidson riders to its World Headquarters from Thursday, August 30 to Saturday, September 1 as part of Harley-Davidson’s 115th Anniversary celebration.
The three-day experience will take place daily from 9 am to 4 pm at Milsco’s corporate headquarters and development center in Milwaukee’s Menomonee River Valley neighborhood on Canal Street.
“After recently relocating back to Milwaukee’s downtown area, we are thrilled to be taking part in these monumental festivities that are so important to the city we have called our home for over 90 years,” said Timm Fields, Vice President & General Manager at Milsco Manufacturing. “It goes without saying that we are honored to be collaborating with Harley-Davidson, who has been a long-standing and very valued partner to our company.”
Founded in 1924, Milsco started out as Milwaukee Saddlery Company manufacturing and selling accessories for farm horses. Ten years later, the company developed the “Buddy Seat” for Harley-Davidson, which sparked the deep-rooted relationship between the two companies.
In 1948, after selling the original saddlery business to Sears, Roebuck & Company, the company was renamed to Milsco Manufacturing Company and shifted its focus toward products to serve the modern industrial era. As Milsco continued to grow, the seating solutions company also produced fashion belts and abacuses.
The three-day experience will include the opportunity for riders to visit the Harley-Davidson Fit-Shop to test different seat and handlebar combinations with guidance from experts who can outfit bikes with a seat for a test ride, experience a self-guided tour of the Milsco R&D Center to see how seats are developed from concept to production, and learn about Milsco’s 84-year history of partnering with Harley-Davidson.
