Paul Lindsoe, owner of Headwaters Seat Covers, started making custom seat covers in 1987.
He started with a small company in Bozeman, Montana. Since then Paul has mastered the craft of designing and installing seat covers. He’s also mastered operation of the Eastman M-9000 seat cover cutting machine. In 2006, while working for the same business he started with, Paul drew a Bighorn Sheep tag in District 482 in eastern Montana. His current position, at the time, within the company held little future. It didn’t take much prodding from his wife when she said, “Quit your job, spend time sheep hunting, and start your own business.” So that is what he did! He quit his job and bagged a tremendous Bighorn ram. Afterward, he became a stay-at-home dad to his two young boys, working out of his garage with his black lab at his side, and the hunting channel always on TV.
And so it began…
Headwaters Seat Covers’ humble beginnings started in September 2006, launched with $275 on a zero percent credit card in Paul’s back pocket. But what he lacked in money, he made up for in knowledge, innovation, experience, customer service, and a strong drive to succeed.
Headwaters Seat Covers is a family owned company located in Three Forks, Montana. Paul, as our head designer, designs every template we use for our digitally cut patterns. Lori, his wife, heads the accounting and human resources side of the company. Over the years, their two sons have both helped with different tasks in the business.
Since then Headwaters Seat Covers has come a long way with the help of others and the assistance available to small business dreamers.
Headwaters Seat Covers is committed to providing quality products and communicating honestly with our customers. As word of our integrity, quality and customer service spread, Paul started thinking about expanding. Before long, Paul secured a corner lot in Three Forks and moved out of the garage and into a permanent building of 1,500 square foot production and installation facility.
As the business continued to grow, Paul and Lori built a team of very skilled and professional employees. We work hard to maintain a close-knit family environment and our employees range from avid outdoors people to technology buffs, from large extended families to single parents and the young and independent. Throughout the entire manufacturing process, from design to cutting to sewn assembly, we are dedicated to every detail! Headwaters Seat Covers’ employees have many years of manufacturing sewing and customer service experience.
Throughout the years Headwaters Seat Covers and its employees have supported and volunteered at several local and state programs such as Walleyes Unlimited, Camp Mak-A-Dream, The Trooper David DeLaittre Memorial, Three Forks Schools programs and Three Forks Youth Recreation. We have also supported The University of Jamestown Golf Program, The Mason Moore Foundation, Headwaters Food Bank, The Girls Scouts, Wounded Warrior Hunts and our Armed Forces.
