Seaboard Twine began back in 1926, when Alfred Burtis founded the company at  49 Murray St. in the Tribeca section of Manhattan. The company passed from father to son, until in the 1980's it became part of the Heller & Usdan Company.


In 2004, when Duke Usdan retired, Heller & Usdan closed, but three employees kept the cordage business going, under the original Seaboard name, in Moonachie NJ.


In 2015, as a result of damage from Hurricane Irene and other economic stresses, that Seaboard company dissolved.


Now, in 2017, one of the three partners has reclaimed the business and is starting it afresh. The new Seaboard Twine Company is rooted in decades of experience.
