Founder Josef Dagn began manufacturing vehicle depollution equipment in Austria in 1967.
SEDA USA, a maker of vehicle depollution equipment for the auto recycling and scrap processing industry, is celebrating its 30th year in business in 2014.
Parent company SEDA was founded by Josef Dagn in Austria in 1967. (Dagn is pictured at right with a 1993 fluid drainage system.) Since then Dagn and his team have grown the SEDA brand to include companies in the U.S., China, Japan, Holland, Austria, Turkey; as well as partner distributors throughout the world, including in Australia, Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Canada.
From its first gas tank drill to the new “Made in America” Patriot, SEDA says it has always focused on quality, efficiency and safety as the backbone of its products.
SEDA USA was originally based in New York. Two years later the company headquarters was moved to St. Petersburg, Fla. In 2009, SEDA USA relocated to its current site in Fayetteville, Ga., near Atlanta, where the U.S. corporate hub includes a 3,000-square-foot showroom for in-house product training and demonstration, a 5,000-square-foot maintenance and production warehouse and 2,500 square feet of office space.
In recent years SEDA USA has introduced the U.S.-made Mobile Drainage Station, designed to an affordable and high-quality drainage system. The company also says in 2014 it has begun working on solutions for fire prevention.
