Product Updates — GO-ES Foldaway Cover, Docket 90 Vinyl and Level Changes

November 15, 2022

Product Update – GO-ES Foldaway Cover
We are informing all customers of a modification to the GO-ES SpaceSaver Foldaway seat cover. Effective December 1, 2022, carpet will no longer be used on the back portion of the cover. Instead, the back will match the rest of the cover using the same upholstery. This modification is meant to enhance aesthetics while improving manufacturing process and production efficiency, allowing Freedman to hold a competitive price without compromising quality.

What does this mean for Freedman Seating customers?

  • New orders beginning 12/1/22 will no longer have the carpet on the back.
  • If you require carpet on the back to match existing seats in a run, please contact customer service at (773) 524-2440.
  • This only applies to the GO-ES Foldaway. This does not affect other variations of the GO-ES seat or seat belt function.
  • The seat remains FMVSS compliant.
  • This change has no immediate effect on pricing.
  • Replacing existing covers is not necessary.

We understand the importance of consistency and quality; therefore, this update will be permanent.
