The owner of the company, Tim McMahan, started in 1981. The McMahan name, however, has been synonymous with theatre seating since the late 1940’s, after World War II. The three McMahan Boys, Bill, Norman and Duke, started a theatre chair service company, which lasted until the early 1960’s, when the boys split up.
Norman and Duke moved to Northern California to set up shop. Bill and his two sons, Ken and Tim, started Consolidated Seating and stayed in Los Angeles.
