SECAT began in 1999 when a group of aluminum industry executives recognized the need for an independent, state of the art testing facility. One needs to understand, however, that this sort of thing doesn’t happen overnight…
Starting in 1999 in partnership with the Center for Aluminum Technology, the endeavor was funded with support from UK, state and federal government and strategic aluminum industry partners. Initially the company managed four collaborative research projects while getting the laboratory facilities readied –SECAT’s Coldstream Research Campus Facility was functional by 2003 and in 2005 the initial projects were completed.
Now came the time to “flip” the work of SECAT to a proprietary basis – the company’s focus became positioning itself as the aluminum specific R&D facility for the entire industry. The selling point of “Access without Ownership” became the core of SECAT’s business model.
In a continually evolving and growing industry SECAT’s ability to serve as the low cost R&D center has positioned the company as the industry leader in solving problems and Providing Aluminum Answers.
