Our Firm's

Our firm's namesake, Emerson Seils, repairing a typewriter in his IBM workshop, circa 1951.

Emerson 'Em' Seils, the great-grandfather of our founder, was a true jack-of-all trades and a craftsman in every sense of the word. He was a draftsman, a mechanic, a farmer and worked a variety of other odd jobs in Rochester, NY to keep his family afloat during the Great Depression.
