Our History

A joint venture between Systems Consultants Associates, Inc. and PPG Industries, Inc., SEC was formed as a limited liability company in 2001 to serve primarily as a Tier 1 supplier of electro-coated frames and other vehicle components for Nissan North America’s automotive manufacturing plant in Canton, Mississippi.

We have rapidly become a proven leader of very high quality electrocoating and related value added services as a Tier I, II and “N” supplier, with a broad customer base of many OEM, Tier “N” and Industrial Customers. Our plant first started production in April 2003 and is housed in a 134,000-square foot facility located on 13 acres.
